Michigan Football: Unsigned 2013 Recruiting Targets the Wolverines Must Get

Rob Goldberg@TheRobGoldbergFeatured ColumnistDecember 27, 2012

College football recruiting never stops, especially for a top school like Michigan.

The Wolverines have already put together an elite recruiting class for the 2013 season that includes quarterback Shane Morris, great offensive lineman Kyle Bosch and one of the best athletes in the class: Dymonte Thomas. 

Still, this group has an opportunity to get even better with a few more additions. These are the top remaining targets for Michigan that they must get.

Derrick Green, RB

As one of the top running backs in the nation, Derrick Green is a player that every school wants. Of course, that only makes the competition more difficult.

The Virginia native is considering programs from everywhere from Miami to Oregon.

While Michigan has already received a commitment from talented running back DeVeon Smith, this should not hurt Green's interest. First of all, he is more talented, so any numbers crunch would go toward Green.

In addition, his size and strength would make him a great complement to any other back on the roster. 

On a team that will be short of playmakers next season, Green would be a great add.


Leon McQuay III, S

There are few game-changers on the defensive side of the football, but Leon McQuay III can be one of those rare commodities.

He has excellent instincts and a knack for finding the football from the safety position.

For a team that only forced seven interceptions all year, McQuay would make a huge difference to the already solid defense.

It will not be easy to get a commitment with USC, Oregon and Florida State all in the mix. However, there will be plenty of playing time ahead if he decides to be a Wolverine.


Dennis Finley, OT

Although Dennis Finley has already committed to Michigan State, recruiting is never finished until a player signs his letter of intent.

Michigan recently offered him a scholarship with the hope of changing his decision.

The big offensive lineman from Detroit is one of the most physically imposing players in the entire class. He is listed as 6'6" and 285, and the scary part is he can still put on a lot more muscle at the next level.

Adding Finley would solidify the offensive line for the future and allow the team to have a top-notch rushing attack.

All the Wolverines need is a change of heart from the big man.
