Michigan Football’s 2013 class is nearing capacity and on Thursday they picked up a commitment from Channing Stribling (Mathews, North Carolina). He might be under the radar of most of the recruiting services, but he is a great addition to the Wolverines elite recruiting class. Stribling earned his offer after an outstanding showing at Michigan’s camp this week.
Checking in at 6-foot-2, 170 pounds, Stribling plays receiver and cornerback for Butler High School. As a junior he corralled 35 passes for 635 yards and 8 TDs. On defense he snagged 6 interceptions, broke up 14 passes and registered 35 tackles. Michigan is recruiting him to play safety and follow in the footsteps of fellow Butler alum, Jamar Adams (2004-07).
Stribling becomes commit #22 for Michigan in the class of 2013. He joins Dymonte Thomas (Alliance, Ohio) as the only other safety prospect in the class. The Wolverines also have 2 cornerbacks in the class; Jourdan Lewis (Detroit, Michigan) and Gareon Conley (Massillon, Ohio). You can see Michigan’s complete list of 2013 commits below.

Before everyone gets all excited about the idea of Michigan being back to being Michigan again, remember: Even when it was rocking and rolling, Michigan needed to be better.
Why not just accept what last year was, and be happy?
Michigan went 11-2, beat Ohio State and won the Sugar Bowl. It was as good a season as could reasonably be asked for after the terrible Rich Rodriguez era...
