Jim Harbaugh and Michigan football are off to a strong start on the recruiting trail for the 2017 cycle so far with some big name recruits already committed and more still on the board.

So here we go:

Commits are italicized

Quarterbacks (1)

5* Dylan McCaffrey (Littleton, Colorado)

Running Backs (3)

4* A.J. Dillon (Groton, Massachusetts)

4* O'Maury Samuels (Los Lunas, New Mexico)

So there's the first edition. This class looks like another 24-27 player haul and like last year, it will probably take some attrition to make it work in the end.
