2. Running back Cole Cabana
Mike Hart’s recruiting ability has come into question a little but it really shouldn’t. Hart knows what he’s doing and his development at the position is above reproach.
But looking back at Michigan’s 2023 recruiting class, the Wolverines landed one of the best running backs in the country in Cole Cabana, who is ranked No. 171 overall and 10th among running backs at 6 feet, 180 pounds.
At one point, Cabana seemed to be a Michigan State lean before Hart and the Wolverines were able to turn it around. The dynamic back out of Dexter, Michigan was the No. 2 player in the state and Michigan football fans are going to love this kid.
Cabana has already enrolled early and is on campus. What I think gives him a chance next season to make an early impact, even with Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards back, is his ability to catch the football too.
His role might be similar to that of Edwards but Cabana and CJ Stokes will be battling it out for that No. 3 running back job, and as both a runner and receiver, Cabana will make his presence felt on the Michigan Wolverines in 2023.
