Team 136 Best Guess Recruiting Class: August 15th

With only 3 (ish) spots left in the 2014 class, we are turning most of our attention to 2015 and the top flight class that Brady Hoke has already started. He has commitments from the best receiver in the country, George Campbell, and the best player in the Midwest, RB Damien Harris, as well as commitments from two other up and coming prospects.

This class is going to be small but very talented, as the Wolverines have high interest from a lot of the best players in the country. Let\’s just say, this could be the fastest put together class in the nation.

Check out our latest BGRC:

1. QB: 4* David Edwards, 6\’6\’\’ 195lbs. Downers Grove, IL (North HS)

Offer: Not Yet- Edwards is a big, strong, athletic quarterback that may or may not be a QB in college but he has the build Hoke and Borges crave in their signal callers. If he lands an offer, there is a very good chance he commits on the spot as he has admitted several times that Michigan is his favorite and out right leader.

Visit: Yes

Michigan\’s Chances: Very, Very Good, if offered

Highlights

2. RB: 5* Damien Harris, 5\’11\’\’ 195lbs. Berea, KY (Madison Southern HS)

\"\"
Damien Harris #34, RB

-Possibly the #1 running back in the class and one of the top players in the country, Harris is huge Michigan fan and is seen as a must get for Hoke. He is just bigger, faster, and stronger than his competition and has an Arien Foster running style. There is a good chance he is the only running back in this class.

He would be a great get for any program but they may all be trailing the Wolverines as KLS has admitted that he and his family are \”big Michigan fans\” and that an offer from Brady Hoke would be a dream come true. If offered, he said they would jump to the top of his list.

Hjalte Froholdt #87, DE

– The Denmark born foreign exchange student is a big, strong, athletic lineman that can use his hands very well. He was living in Ohio with an O$U fan but was so happy to receive his Michigan offer that he began crying. It should come down to the Wolverines and Buckeyes. But a twist in the story is that he is headed back to Denmark for his junior year. So, we\’ll see who recruits him the most.

\"\"
Tim Settle (via Rivals.com)

– The best defensive interior lineman in the nation (#1 according to Scout), Settle is a monster nose tackle that has elite athleticism.

– One of the best players in the state of Michigan, Thompson is an athletic playmaking hybrid linebacker that is already ranked in the ESPN 300 and is rising.
