With so much of the 2014 class wrapped up already, Michigan wasn't looking to pick up too many players at this weekend's Barbacue at the Big House. Of course, the powers of Brady Hoke should never be doubted.
Michigan received the verbal commitment of five-star receiver George Campbell.

This is big.
Campbell stands 6'4 and has been clocked at 4.37 in the 40-yard dash. He is considered one of the best, if not the best, wide receiver in the 2015 class.
He has long held an interest in Michigan, in part thanks to Michigan picking up teammate Mason Cole (2014 OL) earlier in the cycle. He was long thought to be one of Michigan's biggest targets of next year's recruiting cycle. Now, he is the cornerstone of the 2015 class, and one of the most impressive skill position pickups of Brady Hoke's tenure.
We will have more on this soon, but for right now:
