The ESPNU 150 was updated today and the Michigan Wolverines have a dominating presence on the list. Shane Morris and his fellow Michigan commits total out to include 11 members of the Top 150. That is the most for any school by wide margin.

11 – Michigan
7 – Texas
7 – Florida
6 – Alabama
6 – Georgia

Morris, though vastly underrated on this list, is Michigan’s highest ranked recruit on the list, checking in at #37. I’ll go out on a pretty big limb here and say he finishes much higher when the final rankings come out. The next future Wolverine on the list is cornerback Gareon Conley (Massillon, Ohio) at #62.

L-R: Logan Tuley-Tillman, Shane Morris, Brady Hoke and Patrick Kugler

Here is the complete list of Michigan commits on the ESPNU 150

37. Shane Morris: QB – Warren, Michigan
62. Gareon Conley: CB- Massillon, Ohio
75. Mike McCray: LB – Trotwood, Ohio
92. David Dawson: OG – Detroit, Michigan
97. Logan Tuley-Tillman: OT – Peoria, Illinois
98. Dymonte Thomas: S – Alliance, Ohio
105. Chris Fox: OT – Parker, Colorado
107. Jourdan Lewis: CB – Detroit, Michigan
112. Kyle Bosch: OG – Wheaton, Illinois
115. Taco Charlton: DE – Pickerington, Ohio
121. Patrick Kugler: OG – Wexford, Pennsylvania

Michigan has a staggering 17 commits overall, see the complete list below. Included in that list are recruits that ESPN snubbed, but are highly regarded by other services, guys like TE Jake Butt (Pickerington, Ohio) who is ranked #96 overall by rivals.com and RB Deveon Smith (Warren, Ohio) who is ranked #53 overall by scout.com.

In Morris, U-M has one of the nation’s premier QBs and also one of their best recruiters. The guy is omnipresent. He seems to show up in pictures all over the country where he is mingling with his fellow Michigan commits or other uncommitted recruits that he is still working on to join him in Ann Arbor next year. Chief among those uncommitted recruits are two skill position players; WR Laquon Treadwell (Crete, Illinois) who checks in at #42 on ESPN’s list and RB Ty Isaac (Joliet, Illinois).
