19 former 3-stars expected to play major roles for Michigan football this season

Michigan has former 3-star recruits throughout starting lineup

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Michigan football dominated recruiting headlines last week, rising from No. 23 to No. 5 in the 2020 rankings by landing 10 commitments in a span of six days.

The Wolverines added four four-star players and six three-star players. While the class currently sits at No. 6 in the rankings (Michigan fell one spot over the weekend), it's only No. 15 in terms of average recruit ranking.

Michigan still isn't quite keeping up with the likes of Clemson, Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State in the recruiting world with three-star players making up more than half the 2020 class. But that doesn't mean those won't be productive players.

In fact, as the 2019 season draws closer, there are 19 three-star players expected to have a significant impact on the upcoming campaign. That says a lot, considering Michigan will likely be a preseason top 10 team.
