Recruiting receives a small bump from spring game

Michigan hosted a dozen 2015 recruits and one potential transfer at its spring game last weekend, and history shows that there's a decent chance at least one of them will commit following a post-spring game 'bump.'

Over the previous eight years, Michigan landed 20 recruiting prospects (among 181 signees) within the first 30 days of its spring games, including eight that physically took in the game.

If that 11.0 percent figure held up this spring, then one recruit would drop in the next 30 days.

Among 2014 recruits, wide receivers Drake Harris and Maurice Ways both attended the 2013 spring game, and they would decide for Michigan two and 16 days later, respectively.

The biggest bump over the last decade occurred at the 2011 spring game, with linebackers Royce Jenkins-Stone and James Ross, receiver Devin Funchess, defensive end Mario Ojemudia, and cornerback Terry Richardson all attending and eventually committing to the Wolverines as members of the 2012 class.

Jenkins-Stone made his decision following the April 16 scrimmage with Funchess announcing six days later, and Ross and Ojemudia falling within the 30-day frame by committing in early May.

Additionally, three more players decided within a month of the game, though they did not personally attend the spring scrimmage - tight end AJ Williams, linebacker Joe Bolden and defensive tackle Matt Godin.

In total, 11 commitments of 181 signees from the 2007-14 recruiting classes attended the spring game in April before making their decision.
