Michigan saving room for top prospects

Michigan hasn't landed a commitment since Aug. 8, but that isn't an indictment on the No. 5 class in the country. The Wolverines were very busy early and have 23 commitments in the fold to date, leaving only a handful of spots, which are being held for some of the country's top recruits.

Recruits such as teammates ESPNU 150 CB Yuri Wright and four-star S Elijah Shumate, who patrol the secondary for Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.), the No. 1 team in the Fab 50.

Wright, No. 41 overall, recently set up his first official visit -- Nov. 26 against Ohio State, a game the Wolverines will likely be favored to break a losing streak against the Buckeyes that dates to 2003.
