U-M drops spot in ESPNU class rankings

Michigan didn't see much change in the new ESPNU 150 rankings as far as commitments go. Four-star defensive back Terry Richardson (Detroit/Cass Tech) still leads the way, ranked No. 67 overall in the country.

Commits Royce Jenkins-Stone (Detroit/Cass Tech) and Kyle Kalis (Lakewood,Ohio/St. Edward), both four-stars as well, come in at Nos. 115 and 135 respectively.

Where Michigan saw the most change was in the class rankings, in which Michigan drops from the No. 5 overall class in 2012 to the No. 6 class. Clemson leapfrogged both Michigan and Miami to take the No. 5 spot after landing two prospects, including one in the ESPNU 150.

Michigan's top remaining target is four-star offensive lineman and recent USC decommit Arik Armstead (Elk Grove, Calif./Pleasant Grove). The 6-foot-7, 280-pound lineman recently said Michigan is one of the schools he could visit.

Outside of Armstead, Michigan is still in the hunt for safety Shaq Thompson (Sacramento/Grant) at No. 22 overall, defensive back Yuri Wright (Ramsey, N.J./Don Bosco) at No. 40, offensive lineman Josh Garnett (Puyallup, Wash./Puyallup) at 42, wide receiver Darius Powe (Lakewood, Calif./Lakewood) at 86, and offensive linemen Jordan Diamond (Chicago/Simeon) at 103 and Zach Banner (Lakewood, Wash./Lakes) at 123.
