Best Guess Rec. Class List: OLs, DLs

Coming out of the spring evaluation period, there are now enough OL & DL recruits to make a Best Guess list. One can assume that U-M would like approx. three on each side of the ball. Here is our Memorial Day "Best Guess Recruiting Class List:" OL's & DL's (including those with offers, and those without).

Note: these lists will be stored in the "Spotlights" section at the bottom of the main page.

Also note: There are more DL recruits than OL, but this is okay since high school DL's often become OL's in college.
