I saw somewhere that TCU signed a 3* QB from Germany.  Guy is 6'7".

This class has lot of 247 composite 4* guys. Light on the 5 STARZ though.
I'd say that's right. The class will fill needs, finish well rounded, and second in the conference but light on the peak blue-chippers. That and the top class will go to OSU by a good margin. But being well rounded (rich in kids between the national Top 100 and Top 500 with almost no one falling outside that range) as a "down year recruiting" ain't so bad.

I'm curious and hopeful to see if Frost can get to better than 10% there

You mean this year, yeah? Because as a long term expectation, I'd put him at PSU's average -- in future years, 50/50 to be ahead or behind.

I hope you are right and don't think you're wrong

this year I would be satisfied with 10%

with the wins and bowls should come the 15%, perhaps more

Four star safety RJ Moten commits to the class. He joins Four star safety Jordan Morant, with four star safety Makari Paige seeming probable to join this week at the annual stadium barbecue. That's not the best class of 3+ safeties in history, but it's a good one.
And there it is. Makari drops. With the three four-stars, Michigan should be done at Safety now.

That gives the Michigan class either 23 or 24 commits, depending on one's definition of a scholarship athlete. That debate is really all about Gaige Garcia. He's committed to Michigan with joint Wrestling/Football scholarship offers. If he ever plays football, he'll count for the football allotment. That's the NCAA bylaw. But we're not sure that'll happen. His situation has him starting at wrestling. If he ever makes the football team (recruited as a RB), he'll get that scholarship, instead. The problem that I and others see is that wrestling is a make-weight sport. It's common for HS wrestlers to become great college gridiron guys. But I'm struggling to remember a guy who did both *in* college.

There's talk of adding one-each at CB, DT, WR and calling it quits. I bet things go really quiet now and the rest gets decided in December or, for the right guy, after.

the way Harbaugh operates? Lol. That kid Gaige Garcia has zero shot in hell of ever getting a football scholarship. Probably won't even be in this class come NSD.

heckuva safety class. Especially when you combine it with last years class of Dax Hill (5* STARZ, legit 4.3 freakazoid) and 4* Quentin Johnson (ran 4.47 at NIKE OPENING at 5'10ish and 200ish). 

That's 4 high-quality 4* safety prospects in Quentin Johnson, Jordan Morant, RJ Motten, and Makari Paige- and maybe the best safety prospect in a decade in 5 STARZ Dax Hill. That's not too shabby back-to-back safety classes.

Paige really intrigues me. The kid looks like a WR playing safety in terms of body type. Wonder if he ultimately winds up on offense.

That would make a class of 26-27?


M has 19 scholarship seniors right now, based on my count.

That's right. Kids who are buried andchasing playing time always move on. And fifth year seniors have to be special to be welcomed to re-up when their 4-year contract expires. Still, the pattern under Harbaugh is that everyone will graduate -- usually at Michigan, sometimes elsewhere, as with those who choose to chase football dreams at a smaller school.

The transfers are normal in nature and quantity compared to elsewhere. The less common thing under Harbaugh is that he turns away most fifth years -- the guys who never help the team before their contracts are up. That's a lot of roster space freed annually. For that reason alone, Michigan may never have a class smaller than ~24 in his tenure.
