Can a 17-Man Class Make The Top 10?

Conventional wisdom is not. But this class is an exception -- and is exceptional. Take a look at who has it in the national Top 10.

Yours truly had stated that if Michigan landed either Lamarr Woodley or Shawn Crable on Signing Day that, in my opinion, the Wolverine recruiting class would make Prep Football Report's Tom Lemming's Top 10 for sure, and possibly Allen Wallace's SuperPrep's as well. And that it they landed both there would be no doubt. If I recall correctly, there is only one sub-18-member class in the last 10-12 years that was rated by recruiting analysts in the top ten that l -- a Florida State class several years back. But this 17-man Michigan class is exceptional, and has been recogznized as such by both Lemming and Wallace, as follows.
