Michigan starts off once again with less than 20 scholarships available for 2007 -- of course, the number grew from 12 to 20 in 2005-06.
(Note: This "First Guess" list is inclusive, not exclulsive. Names will be added, especially through the spring and through camp.
We don't want to put a person on the list who doesn't belong there, but visa versa is certainly the case -- there wil be more.)
