It seems Jimmy and staff started to prioritize the 2019 class back in the middle of the 2018 recruiting cycle. Not sure what the thinking was but Michigan fans are expecting a top 5 class and the Wolverines are off to a great start.
5 Star DE or OT Chris Hinton - Rated #14 in the Country by 24/7
4 Star OG Nolan Rumler - Rated #63 in the country and from Akron, Oho
4 Star DE Stephen Herron Jr. - Rated #69 and is from Louisville
3 Star LB Charles Thomas, from IMG
As you can see Michigan already has committed players ranked higher then the entire 2018 class.
