We are less than a month away from National Signing Day 2016 on Feb. 3. The Michigan Wolverines currently have 23 committed prospects in this current cycle with more on the way.

The dead period is set to end early next week and then it is a full-fledged sprint to the finish line. Here is our latest look at how things could finish up.

Basic math says that the above names give the Wolverines 29 players in the class. For those asking how Michigan is able to make that work, that remains to be seen.

Attrition is always possible on the current roster. Also, current commits could also decide to open things up and look elsewhere. There are players on this list that very well may not even be considered commits to the staff right now, but we will leave that to speculation until there is something official to go by.

One thing is for certain, though. if there are players they want, they'll find a way to make room.

As far as new additions, David Long and Dylan Crawford headline this version of our projections. The two four-star prospects from California are trending heavily to the Wolverines and look like good bets to be a part of this class.
