Michigan football’s recruiting class for 2020 is ranked within the top 20 in the nation. Here’s a look at five of those recruits that could make an early impact.
Every year Michigan football succeeds in its mission of gathering some of the best athletes in high school and earning a sky-high class rating. 2020’s class is ranked 14th and just a year ago, the Wolverines breached the top ten.
Before we get into the five 2020 recruits that could make an early impact, let’s briefly discuss the 2019 recruits and their impact this past season.
First off, there’s Zach Charbonnet, who had well over 700 yards on the ground. As the Wolverines transitioned from Karan Higdon‘s 1,000-yard season, a new go-to man needed to emerge and the freshman – along with sophomore Hassan Haskins – gave the Wolverines the ground attack that opened up the passing game.
Next, we have Daxton Hill, the crown jewel of the class that didn’t acclimatize to the college game until later on in the year. His ceiling, however, is arguably higher than anyone else’s on the current roster.
There’s also Erik All, Cornelius Johnson, Chris Hinton, Mike Sainristil, and a bunch of others who have either made their presence known already, or they’re patiently waiting to put their stamp on the college football world.
2019 saw a youth movement in Ann Arbor that, when you take a deep dive into the incoming class, will continue as more talent signs their name on the dotted line. Last year was a great class and now that their accomplishments have been covered, it’s time to take a look at 2020 and five signees that could make an early impact.
