07:21 AM ET 08.05 | Not only will Michigan know by mid-November where it stands in the Big Ten race, but also for another recruiting coup. Five-star 2014 defensive end Da'Shawn Hand, the No. 1-ranked player in the country per Rivals.com, will reportedly announce his college destination on Nov. 14. ... Per a report from WolverineNation's Tom VanHaaren, Hand will stick with his plan to visit Michigan on Sept. 7 for the Notre Dame night game at Michigan Stadium. He also has firm plans to make official visits to Alabama and Florida, and isn't sure yet if he'll use his final two visits at USC or LSU. Long considered a heavy lean toward Virginia Tech prior to the summer, the Woodbridge, Va. native dropped the Hokies from his list in June -- prompting many to declare this was Michigan's race to lose.
