Monday Michigan Recruiting Roundup: The Long Con

Top Lists For Kenneth Murray, Hunter Echols A couple of notable tidbits from this weekend: Michigan made the top six for three-star linebacker Kenneth Murray (Missouri City, TX), and the top 11 for four-star defensive end Hunter Echols (Los Angeles, CA).

Murray is an outside linebacker prospect, a position where Michigan is also pursuing Baron Browning, Drew Singleton, and Jordan Anthony. Linebacker is one of the big remaining needs in this class, and...
