An Initial Instate Early 18 Juniors

U-M generally signs around 4-8 instaters each year (this year: Grady, Bass, Taylor, McLaurin, Butler, Criswell), and might only seriously recruit 8-10 instate kids a year. Who may those 10-or-so be this year? From Instate Guru Jim S' early list, here are 18 kids to start with.<br><br> Is this THE Top 18 juniors in Mich.? No, it's far too early for that. Jim will update us as the list firms up. <br><br> But this <b>Initial Instate Early 18 Juniors</b> is a good place to start.<br>

An Initial Instate Early 18 Juniors
(Note: these names are NOT meant to be in any kind of precise order at this early date; in fact a year ago at this time Antonio Bass was at the tail end of an initial instate top 20 ... the order will start firming up over the next few weeks, and some new names will likely be added and others dropped)
