The 2019 recruiting class was not a good one for the Michigan Wolverines, but that’s OK, because Michigan still had a lot of room for improvement.
The Wolverines were ranked first in 2019, according to 247Sports Composite rankings, but only got better.
They ranked 11th in 2019 and 14th in 2020, and they were ranked sixth and ninth in 2021 and 2022, respectively.
Now that the class has turned, they’re currently ranked first, ahead of Alabama, Ohio State, Texas, LSU, Florida, Clemson and Penn State.
That’s an improvement.
But Michigan’s recruiting class of 2019 was ranked by 247Sports in the top 10 in 2018 and 2019, and the Wolverines could be even better this time around.
But they’re still not quite as strong as they were in 2019.
Michigan did not take a top-25 player out of the class, and it was only in the first round of the 2019 draft that the Wolveries added a top 10 player.
So while there’s a ton of room to improve for Michigan, the Wolverine recruiting class is not nearly as good as what they had in 2019 as the class became stronger, but not by much.
But it’s not like Michigan’s not going to improve, because it’s going to do so.
The 2017 recruiting class (in this case, the 2017 class) was the fifth-best in the country.
In 2018, Michigan was ranked fourth in the nation.
In 2019, Michigan ranked third, while Ohio State was ranked fifth.
And the Wolverings were at the top of the 2017 recruiting rankings.
In 2020, Michigan’s ranked fifth, and in 2021 it was ranked ninth.
In 2022, Michigan moved up to seventh.
So Michigan has some room to make strides in 2019 after they made the recruiting jump in 2018.
But 2020 and 2021 were the most promising years for the Wolverins in recruiting.
Michigan still has plenty of room, but the Wolveriest of the bunch is going to have to put in more work this year to get where it wants to be.
In the 2018 class, Michigan added a first-round draft pick to the 2017 draft, and after a long offseason, it has one of the best classes in the 2019 class.
Michigan’s top four recruiting classes were the first four classes in history to do it in a single year.
The 2019 class has one.
And it is going a long way to make Michigan a much more potent recruiting class in 2020.
The recruiting class for 2020 is still very young, but it’s definitely more powerful than the 2019 recruiting classes.
There’s some room for growth in 2020 and 2019.
If Michigan can get to the top tier of 2019, it should be able to get to that next level of success.
