Michigan was right on the heels of Ohio State, signing more players than any Big Ten school (27). The cream of the class is the guy who committed last: Derrick Green, a 5-11, 220-pound smasher with speed from Richmond, Va., who is considered the top running back in the nation by Scout.com. Green picked Michigan over Auburn and Tennessee and solves a gnawing need at running back for the Wolverines.

Touted QB Shane Morris was the first commit and played a big role as a recruiter along the way. The other top catches are S Dymonte Thomas and G Patrick Kugler, as Michigan signed the top collection of offensive linemen and top group of running backs in the nation, according to Scout.com.
