    2010 Michigan Recruits

    :5stars: Jakari Booker #1 TE - This 6'5" 264 LB youngster will be a staple of the Wolverine offense for years. He has B- speed, catching and route running, and B break tackle which will make him a dangerous target in the passing game. He also grades out at B- in several blocking ratings, which will strengthen the Michigan rushing attack. The coaching staff is unsure if he will be redshirted in 2010, but it is unlikely.

    :5stars: Tony Givens #2 DT - Givens is 6'3" and 275 LBS. He possesses B+ strength, B- tackling, C- power move, B- finesse move, B- pursuit, and B- hit power. Michigan already has 3 very good DT, so Givens will redshirt in 2010. Look for him to hit the field in 2011.

    :5stars: Jesse Hunter #1 ATH (JUCO) - At 6'2" 196 LBS, Hunter is strong in many categories, with B man coverage and B zone coverage, A- agility, C- hit power, C- break tackle, and C- ball carrier vision. His A speed is what has Wolverine fans really pumped up. He will likely play HB, but he definitely has the skills to play CB as well. Free Safety would be a possibilty, but he is only rated D- in tackling. HB is more of a need in the short term, with Seniors Brandon Minor and Carlos Brown graduating. Of course, his speed is enticing for the offensive coaching staff.

    :5stars: Ryan Randolph #2 OLB - At 6'2" 212 LBS, Randolph is on the skinny side for a linebacker. However, he makes up for it with his B- tackling, B- block shedding and B- strength ratings. He also has B- speed, B pursuit, B- hit power and B- agility. His coverage ratings and pass rush moves are not good, but he should be an asset in run defense. Given the poor defensive showing in 2009, Randolph will likely be a starter in 2010. He could redshirt, but that depends on off-season position changes and the ability of the next recruit on the list.

    :4stars: Caleb Wheeler #5 OLB - Like Randolph, Wheeler is on the skinny side at 6'3" and 212 LBS. Wheeler's best attributes are his B- speed, B tackling, and B- block shedding. Even though the rest of his ratings are not high, he may crack the starting lineup. On the other hand, he may take a redshirt in 2010 and beef up his abilities for 2011.

    :4stars: Greg Jackson #5 OT - Jackson is a huge young man, at 6'7" 310 LBS. He grades out at B in pass blocking, B- in run blocking and B- in strength. He has uncommon awareness for an incoming freshman, at C. Pass blocking is his forte, with B- footwork and B strength. He will likely take a redshirt in 2010, and the Michigan staff has high hopes for his future.

    :4stars: Tyler Johnson #4 DT - Look for some pass deflections in this man's future, as he stands 6'5" tall and 283 pounds. Johnson will be a run stuffer for the Wolverines, as he possesses A- strength, B tackle, B block shedding, and B- hit power. Like Tony Givens, he will likely take a redshirt in 2010. These two freshmen DT will be wreaking havoc in a backfield near you in 2011 and beyond.

    :4stars: Stevie Lawrence #4 SS - Michigan has assured Lawrence that he will be a starter in 2010, and he is excited to throw his 6'0" 178 pound frame around the college game. He is on the slow end, with only B- speed, but this defense needs a smart player who will make the sure tackle. Lawrence will provide that, as he has C awareness, B- tackle, B+ hit power and B- pursuit. He will often be in zone coverage, so his B+ attribute in that category is a huge plus. He only has C+ man coverage, so the defensive staff won't ask him to play man up too often.

    :4stars: Leon Lloyd #9 OG - At 6'3" 317 LBS, Lloyd doesn't take advantage of his size well enough. He only has C+ strength and C+ impact blocking. The staff will get him in the weight room during 2010 to try and improve those categories. He does have B- pass block, B- run block, B- run block footwork, and B run block strength, so Lloyd does have promise. He will probably redshirt in 2010, but that decision has yet to be made.

    :4stars: Stanley Pierce #28 CB - Pierce could be the hidden gem of this class. He stands 6'0" 168 LBS and his best attribute is his A- speed. His coverage ratings are good, with B- man coverage and B+ zone coverage. His press coverage rating is on the low side, with C, so the coaches must keep that in mind. He also has B+ agility and B+ acceleration, so he should be able to keep up with some of the faster receivers in football. No one else was recruiting Pierce, so he comes in with a chip on his shoulder. Michigan's corners couldn't have played much worse in '09, so he will push them for playing time in 2010.

    Signed Off-Season Week 1

    :4stars: David Howard #9 HB - Howard made the unusual move of backing out of a soft commit to his hometown LSU Tigers. The 5'11" 173 LB tailback has speed to burn, with an A- rating. He also has B agility and B juke move. His other ratings leave much to be desired, so he is likely going to take a redshirt in 2010.
