The writers at WolverineNation and BuckeyeNation put their heads together to break down the rivals' 2013 recruiting classes. They'll give readers a position-by-position look at who coaches Brady Hoke and Urban Meyer signed and, ultimately, which class edged out the other. It's too early to say what will happen through the next few seasons, and we won't make any promises except that Hoke and Meyer are going to put talent on the field.

Michigan got: Jake Butt (Pickerington, Ohio/Pickerington North) ended up ranked as the No. 4 Y-tight end in the class and Khalid Hill (Detroit/East English Village) as the No. 8 H-tight end.

Butt didn’t make it out to many camps or combines, so there wasn’t a whole lot known about him outside of his highlight tapes. Once he made it out to a camp over the summer he was extended an invitation to Nike’s The Opening, where he shined.
