Jim S' Instate Rankings

Here is Jim S' eve-of-U-M Nike Camp Top Instate Prospects. It's a good time to study the list in light of Saturday's U-M Nike performances.

Here is Jim S' pre-U-M Nike Camp Top Instate list, compiled right on the eve of the camp. This list will change some now, as the Nike Camp gives a great chance to compare the kids in attendance. The real goal is to settle on a firm Top 10-12, as this will be the kids U-M focuses their recruiting efforts on. I'd say there will be a ‘pretty firm' Top 10-15 soon, now that the Nike is over, and a ‘firm' Top 10 after the U-M Summer Camp.
