Incoming: Chris Fox

On Saturday, I had a incoming post all written up ready to welcome Kyle Bosch, Wyatt Shallman, Jourdan Lewis and David Dawson to the 2013 class. And then, at exactly 10:51PM, or right about the time the Michigan basketball team was about to knock off the #6 Buckeyes at the Crisler Center and define their program, Sam Webb dropped yet another commitment on us. The 5th 4-star commitment of the day.

It was at that point that I just threw my hands up and said I'll just deal with all the required posting madness tomorrow. And then about a half an hour later, the 6th commit of the day came calling. It was then that I started doing this all around the house. I'd been drinking.

It should be noted that of the 8 commitments from the weekend, all of them are ranked in the Rivals Top 200. 10 of the 11 recruits in this class are in the top 200. The 2012 class had 6 – and that was a great class. We're on track for maybe one of the best incoming classes in Michigan football history if things keep going the way they are.

Chris Fox

Scout: ★★★★, NR OG
Rivals: ★★★★ OT, #46 Ovr
ESPN: ★★★★, ESPNU 150
24/7: ★★★★, #8 OT, #48 Ovr

A quick glance at the recruiting sites and you see that Fox is listed as either a guard or a tackle. He's listed at 6-5 or 6-6 and in the ball-park of 300 pounds, so he could potentially fit into either position given his size. It would really just boil down to where he fits in best once he gets on campus and Funk gets his hands on him.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a 5th star added to Fox on at least one of the sites, given he's rated the 46th overall recruit in the nation by Rivals and 48th by 24/7. This clearly makes Fox one of the highest rated recruits so far in an already stellar 2013 class.
