ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- With a 2014 quarterback commitment locked up for Michigan, it’s never too early to start looking ahead to the following classes and the players whose names could pop up on the Wolverine’s radar.

Two 2015 quarterbacks on the national scene already have given verbal commitments. Dual-threat De’Andre Johnson (Jacksonville, Fla./First Coast) gave his verbal to Florida State in July after just one season of high school football. And USC picked up its first commitment of the 2015 class with dropback passer David Sills (Elkton, Md./Eastern Christian Academy). And it doesn’t stop there. The 2016 class saw its first QB commitment in December with Shea Patterson (Hidalgo, Texas/Hidalgo) committing to Arizona.
