TMI Recap: Best Michigan WR Class Ever?

TMI's Josh Newkirk and Sam Webb ask the question: is this Michigan's best WR class ever?

Michigan has had its fair share of notable wide receiver classes throughout its history. 

But is the 2017 class the best ... ever? Well, with five-star Donovan Peoples-Jones, and fellow four-stars Nico CollinsTarik BlackOliver Martin and Brad Hawkins, the 2017 class certainly make its case.

The Michigan Insider crew compared this year's haul to the best receiver classes to come through Ann Arbor in the last 30 years. 

Michigan's tradition at the wide receiver position is rich and star studded.

While many went to Ann Arbor enjoying great amounts of success, not all arrived on campus with the highest recruiting ranking nationally, or even at their position.

Michigan's 2017 wide receiver recruiting class could potentially be changing the game and look of the Wolverines under Jim Harbaugh heading into year three leading the program.

Boasting four players ranked inside the top 30 pass catchers in the entire country, to go along with a former four-star recruit in the 2016 class, Brad Hawkins, several freshmen could be ready to make an impact following the departure of seniors Amara Darboh and Jehhu Chesson.

Headling the class is the No. 1 ranked wide receiver in the country in Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech's Donovan Peoples-Jones. At nearly 6-foot-3, 190-pounds, Peoples-Jones sets the tone for a class with great size, speed and versatility.

Along with Tarik Black, Nico Collins, Oliver Martin, and the afformentioned Brad Hawkins, Michigan's haul of playmakers on the outside looks like the deepest and highest rated in the Wolverines history.
