There are a few changes this time, of course.

We'll start with an anticipated departure. It does not seem likely David Reese sticks in this class. We have seen schools like Texas and Nebraska offer him opportunities to enroll early and it just does not seem like that is an option at Michigan. Look for him to flip in the near future.

Lavert Hill and Kareem Walker are the newest additions. Both are free after opening up their respective recruitments and they seem like fits that fill needs.

On the Isaac Nauta front, things seem to be trending the way of the Wolverines after Mark Richt was fired from Georgia. He would be perfect in Harbaugh's offense and would play right away regardless of if Jake Butt left for the NFL or not.

With coaches free to hit the road and visit prospects now, the picture should be painted a little more clearer as each day passes.
