Rivals and Scout keep Michigan in top 10 of updated 2012 basketball recruiting rankings
The Michigan basketball team's 2012 recruiting class took a slight dip in the national rankings this week.
But it's still considered a top 10 class, and still rated higher than Michigan State's, according to both Rivals and Scout.com.
The Spartans' current four-man group is rated No. 13 by Rivals and No. 11 by Scout.

Michigan's current signing class features the top-rated Big Ten prospect (per Rivals) in five-star small forward Glenn Robinson III, the 11th-best player in the Rivals Top 150. Four-star power forward Mitch McGary ranks No. 30 overall, while four-star shooting guard Nik Stauskas ranks No. 71 overall.
Three-star point guard Spike Albrecht is not listed among Rivals' Top 150.
"In Robinson III, John Beilein and his staff have a potential Big Ten star to provide instant help on the wing," the site explained. "McGary is a physical post player with skill around the rim and the ability to face up and score near the free throw line. Stauskas can bomb away from deep and Albrecht provides insurance at the point."
The class currently contains four members, but may add a fifth.
LeVert, who was reportedly released from his Ohio letter of intent after coach John Groce left the Bobcats for Illinois, is a 6-foot-4, 175-pound shooting guard from Pickerington, Ohio.
He's rated as a three-star player by Rivals.
