The class features nine players from Michigan and nine from Ohio. There are also two from Missouri and one each from California, Iowa, Kentucky, Tennessee and Utah. The class features 14 defenders (six linemen, four linebackers and four defensive backs) and 11 offensive players (four linemen, two tight ends, three wide receivers and three running backs/fullbacks).

"This class, we're very excited about," coach Brady Hoke said. "The exciting thing is we hit some areas of need we needed to address, some of that from a lack of scholarships that were at some positions and the other part of it is the style of offense and style of defense that we want to play."
