Meet Michigan's 2016 Recruiting Class: National Signing Day Recap

Michigan commits from the 2016 recruiting class.

Jim Harbaugh's first full recruiting cycle couldn't have been much more eventful. And yesterday, on National Signing Day, all of the sleepovers, and climbed trees, and class visits seemed to pay off. The Wolverines inked one of the best classes in the country, finishing fifth nationally and second in the Big Ten, per 247Sports. Yesterday's biggest win came with the commitment of the nation's No. 1 player, defensive tackle Rashan Gary, one of 15 blue chip players to join the Wolverines.

Here is Michigan's full class:
