Historical Perspective on Michigan Football Recruiting
Historical Perspective on Michigan Football Recruiting (1999-2005)
Historical Perspective on Michigan Football Recruiting (2005-2009)

There are nearly 4,000 football recruits listed in the Scout (Hodge) database so the top 300 recruits represent the top 10% of the available prospects. While Michigan (or any football program) would probably accept commitment offers of any top 4 or 5 star recruit as graded by Rivals, Scout (Hodge), TAKKLE, Lemming (MaxPreps), 247Sports or other scouting analyst, we have concentrated our efforts on prospects who have shown interest in representing Michigan football. While you can't sign them all, we were finalists for many top national recruits like we are every year. We offer scholarships to 200 or so prospects annually to reach 20-25 commitments of the total 85 allowed. If one considers that there are 120 NCAA Division I Football Programs with a potential of 25 scholarships per year per institution with a maximum of 85 total scholarships, there are as many as 3000 Division I scholarships potentially available. This doesn't include Division II teams, Division III or Junior College opportunities to play football as a walk-on, partial or full scholarship player.

Pre-1977: NO scholarship limits in D-1A football.  It was up to each university to determine how many scholarships it could afford.

1977-1991: D1 Football limit of 95 scholarships due to Title IX

1992: D1 Football limit of 92 scholarships

1993: D1 Football limit of 88 scholarships

1994-Present: D1 Football limit of 85 scholarships
