That's a pretty good haul for a team coming off a 15-22 stretch from 2008-2010. Of course, Michigan won the Sugar Bowl and went 11-2 during this past season, but many of Michigan's top recruits (Joe Bolden, Royce Jenkins-Stone, Kyle Kalis, Ondre Pipkins, Terry Richardson, James Ross, etc.) were committed well before they knew how good Michigan would be in 2011.
EDIT: After I scheduled this post for publication, I wandered over to MGoBlog and saw that Seth did a very in-depth look at Michigan's recent recruiting classes. Head over there if you want a more detailed analysis of where Michigan's recruits and classes rank over the past several years.
