Michigan Football Recruiting 2012: National Signing Day Recap

Compared to recent years, National Signing Day 2012 was pretty uneventful for Michigan. No announcements took place involving the Wolverines, and there were no last-minute surprises involving their 25 commits. All of them signed their letters of intent to Michigan with no drama along the way.

For Michigan, the usual excitement of a National Signing Day announcement won't happen until Friday when Jordan Diamond announces his decision. Diamond has narrowed his list of choices down to Michigan, Wisconsin, Arkansas and Auburn, and the Wolverines are hoping to land the four-star offensive tackle from Chicago.

Another recruitment that will likely provide more news after National Signing Day is that of Colorado offensive guard Alex Kozan. He committed to Iowa over Michigan on Sunday, but he did not send in his letter of intent on Wednesday. The reason for this is because Kozan hasn't apparently made up his mind about where he wants to sign, and the Wolverines are believed to be in the mix.

With Kozan and Diamond still both possibilities for Michigan, its 2012 recruiting class could grow to 27 commits by the end of the week. For now, it stands at 25, and you can check out a rundown of the players below.
