Hand and Peppers are two of the top four recruits in the Class of 2014, according to the 247Sports Composite. Peppers had been recruiting Hand to Michigan, saying in a video message earlier this week, "You make our class a lot stronger. We have a lot of great recruits on the list already, and you can make us that much stronger. Come get that degree and play top-notch ball in the biggest stadium in college football."

After the speculation that Peppers might be interested in flipping from U-M to 'Bama, his high school coach denied the idea:

Alabama already has the No. 1 recruit, Louisiana OT Cameron Robinson, and has a shot at No. 2, Louisiana RB Leonard Fournette.
