Ray Drew (Thomasville, GA), one of the top overall prospects in the nation, has named Michigan in his top eight schools. Drew is ranked #3 in the ESPN 150, so its great for Michigan to still be in with a shot.
Drew is good friends with fellow ESPN 150 recruit, Avery Walls, who has visited Ann Arbor and sung the praises of the Wolverines to Drew:
"We’ve been talking about them and he’s been talking about how Michigan is a place I need to check out, and maybe set up an official with him so we can get up there at the same time."
An official visit is the next step for Michigan, if they can secure one with both Walls and Drew, then they could have a great chance at both prospects. However, with Drew being the #3 player in the nation, the competition is fierce to say the least. Also in his top eight are....the big three Florida schools, Miami, Florida and FSU, then you have the two in state powers, GA Tech and Georgia, and add in the reigning national champs Alabama for good measure. Auburn also makes the list, and they've done great in recruiting recently.
