    Week 2:
    Michigan gets its first signing under coach Jello. It's the :4stars: #23 ranked DE Anthony Webb. He looks to be average at best and is fairly slow and undersized (a bad combination as it's okay to be fast and undersized or slow and beefy, but not slow AND undersized), but he's from California. His signing means that coach Jello is halfway to repairing his broken pipeline to California.

    While being slow and undersized (6'6, 231 lbs, with C- spd and C ACC) coach Jello hopes that he can pack some LBs onto his impressive 6'6 frame. Webb has decent power moves and pursuit, and is average at pretty much everything else. He'll be a decent back up early on and will likely blossom into a starter later in his career.

    Week 5:
    This week coach Jello became the first user coach to sign a :5stars: recruit. It's #26 overall, James Dougherty who is the 4th best tackle in the country. James is the #1 recruit in the state of Michigan and there was no way that coach Jello was going to let him leave the state or go to a lesser Michigan school. What's even better is the fact that tackle is a need position for the Wolverines.

    Dougherty is quite the physical specimen. He is 6'4, 272 and is very strong. He has recorded the 7th highest bench press in the country and the very best squat in the country with a whopping 690 lb squat. To go with this strength, he has very good acceleration. While he's an average pass blocker, he is a very good run blocker so he will fit in very nicely with coach Jello's philosophy.

    Week 6:
    This week Michigan had 9 recruits in town to see them make a 4th quarter comeback against their rivals Michigan State and most recruits reported that they rated their trip as an "A+". The fruits of these visits were 2 soft commits and 3 hard commits. The soft commits will be discussed after they've finally made up their mind, but here are the 3 newest faces in for the Wolverines.

    :3stars: CB (#73) Jon Clark from San Clemente, CA. This kid isn't very good,but with some time and practice, he might see the playing field later on in his career. His press coverage is very good, but his man coverage skills will need some work. He's also awfully slow to be a CB. Most importantly is the fact that he's from a great part of the country with a lot of talent and coach Jello hopes to use the connections he made with Clark's HS coach to be able to bring in other, better recruits in the future.

    :4stars: FB(#2) Donald Hardy from right here in Michigan was a great signing. Michigan graduates their only FB this year so they were in dire need of a replacement, and you can't complain when that replacement is ranked as the 2nd best @ his position. He has very good speed and acceleration for a FB, is decent at breaking tackles and is good at running people over. Because of that, it's likely that he'll see more carries than is the custom for FBs in coach Jello's system. He should be a decent run blocker as well, which is a requirement to play for Jello. Obviously Hardy will be a first year starter next year.

    :4stars: MLB(#15) Roderick Little is the final guy signed this week. It's reported that coach Jello can't decide if he wants to run a 4-3 or 3-4 next year and this decision hinges on whether or not Jello can sign another MLB to go alongside Little. Little is quite the physical specimen. He stands 6'3, 257 but is quick as a cat. He actually was clocked with the same 40 time as the CB Clark that we just signed, and he has killer acceleration. On top of that, he's very strong (he's registered the highest bench press of all MLBs in this recruiting class) and is a decent tackler and coverage guy. How soon he'll start will depend very much on whether Michigan goes with a 4-3 or 3-4 in the future.

    Weeks 7 & 8:
    Michigan is finishing up the final touches of their recruiting class with 4 signings in the last 2 weeks.

    :4stars:QB (#3) John Jackson will serve as a decent backup to Denard Robinson and eventually Kevin Gardner. He has the skills that coach Jello is looking for with his B- SPD, B ACC, and C+ AGI. He has a strong arm (B) but will need to work on his accuracy (C-). He will likely start as a redshirted SR.

    :4stars:DT(#17) Marques Jackson will provide some needed depth @ DT. Coach Jello still hasn't decided his future defense so it's unclear whether Jackson will eventually start as the #2 DT or if he'll be a career backup.

    :3stars:SS(#40) Ryan Jackson. Michigan needed a SS with only 2 on their roster so this guy is a body to fill that slot. Jello has contemplated running a 3-3-5 in the future, but he'll need to get his hands on some much better strong safeties that Jackson to make that happen.

    :3stars:G(#54) Terrel Hartman, like the other signings these past 2 weeks is simply a body to fill out the depth chart. With 16 JRs and 20 SOs on the roster this year, Michigan can't afford to not use up any schollies.

    Week 10

    Michigan signed 3 more recruits and have 1 schollie left to fill. They got a 3* FS and a 3* TE that will fill needed depth at both positions.

    They also signed :4stars:CB(#16) Todd Snyder from Texas. Coach Jello had not offered Synder until this week as he was trying to sign others. When they fell through, he offered to Synder and Synder signed immediately after his visit to Ann Arbor. "I was so happy when I got the offer from Michigan! I was afraid that I'd end up somewhere crappy like Oklahoma State" Synder commented. He has good speed and decent acceleration to go with his very good coverage skills. He will definitely be a starter after a couple of years on campus.

    Offseason

    Michigan had 2 scholarships free up with the departures of QB Tate Forcier who transferred to Illinois and DE Ryan Van Bergen who is going to test the NFL waters. In the offseason we've filled both new schollies.

    :4stars: DE Carlos Ingram will add some needed depth at DE. He has tremendous acceleration off the ball but will need to add some bulk to his 205 LB frame.

    :4stars: OLB Luis Brooks from the great state of Michigan could become a beast. He has ridiculous acceleration (99) and is really strong. He will be a starter at some point down the line after he redshirts behind 6 other OLBs his FR year.
