Signed, Sealed & Delivered: Meet the 2018 Michigan Football Recruiting Class

On paper, the 2018 Michigan football recruiting class won’t go down as the best of the Jim Harbaugh-era in Ann Arbor. It didn’t finish anywhere close to what most were expecting but that can be attributed to several things, mainly the performance on the field. But it’s also far from a “bad” class.

Michigan signed 19 players in the 2018 class, which included 5 four star recruits, 5 ESPN300 signees and 10 All-Americans. Meet the newest Wolverines (in order of final recruiting rankings):
