Michigan Football Recruiting: Where The 2012 Class Stands On National Signing Day

National Signing Day has arrived. For Michigan, this means a total of 22 recruits will officially join the 2012 recruiting class on Wednesday if everything goes according to plan. There are three recruits for 2012 already enrolled, but the rest of players in the class won't officially join until their letters of intent are sent in. Once they are, Michigan should be looking at a class of 25 players that could grow to 26 on Friday.

Here's how everything breaks down:

Michigan Football Recruiting Class Of 2012 - Potential Additions

After landing Willie Henry on Monday, Michigan appeared to be done until Friday, which is when four-star offensive tackle Jordan Diamond will announce his decision. That didn't turn out to be the case, though. Michigan surprisingly flipped Dennis Norfleet from Cincinnati late on Tuesday, giving the Wolverines 25 total commits for 2012.

Barring another surprise, it appears that Diamond is the only recruit Michigan is now waiting to hear from. He is down to Michigan, Wisconsin, Arkansas and Auburn and will make his decision known on Friday. Everything else for the 2012 class should be finalized on National Signing Day, so things should be rather uneventful for the Wolverines since Diamond's announcement is still a couple days away.
