    I view the Howard hire as a huge risk and likely, a significant downgrade.

    I'm likely splitting hairs. I never thought Beilein was considered a top tier recruiter. While yes he's pulled some great players, I would anticipate a great recruiter at Michigan would be top 25 the nation for recruit rankings annually.

    Michigan since 2008 recruiting Rank per 247 - Nationa/Big 10

    2008 - 283 / 12
    2009 - 34 / 5
    2010 - 45 / 6
    2011 - 29 / 5
    2012 - 8 / 2
    2013 - 14 / 3
    2014 - 30 / 4
    2015 - 107 / 14 (Moritz Wagner is the headliner here)
    2016 - 31 / 6
    2017 - 43 / 6
    2018 - 11 / 3

    OBVIOUSLY RECRUITING RANKINGS /= QUALITY PLAYERS

    However, I do think Juwan will be able to beat those "stats" on the recruiting trail just due to the 'sexiness' of his name. Now, will he coach to the level of Bielien, there is the HUGE risk because Bielien was one of the best in that reguard.
