Thoughts on Michigan’s 2020 Football Recruiting Class

Welp, the 2020 Michigan football recruiting class has officially been put to bed with National Signing Day finally here. Even though it once again comes after a disappointing end to the season, this is a good but not great class.

This 2020 recruiting is well rounded, full of playmakers and immediate impact prospects. However, the class is lacking the elite recruits that previous classes have had.

Michigan finished without a single top-100 recruit on the 2020 Composite Rankings but did end up with 7 recruits between 100-200 and 5 between 200-300. This is a very solid, high ceiling class in which 22 of its 23 commits are in the top 510 with the only prospect outside of that range being QB Dan Villari, who was the last addition to the class following QB JD Johnson‘s medical retirement.

Some of my top signees include CB Andre Selden, S RJ Moten, RB Blake Corum, WR AJ Henning, VLB William Mohan, S Jordan Morant, TE Matthew Hibner, LB Kalel Mullings, and WR Roman Wilson.

As for some sleepers, keep an eye on OL Zak Zinter, SLB/DE Jaylen Harrell, ATH Eamonn Dennis, and LB Cornell Wheeler.

The most intriguing prospect to me has to be Villari. The big, athletic, strong-armed quarterback is a hell of a developmental prospect that, at worst, I believe he could move to tight end and make a Zach Gentry-like impact at the position.

Overall, I like this class. I believe there are a decent amount of signees that are a little underrated and should be top-100 prospects, including Henning, Corum, Moten, and Morant. There are also plenty of players I believe will play early and make a big impact on the program.
