Michigan basketball recruit Glenn Robinson III ranked No. 11 in nation by Rivals.com
Some rankings were shuffled and one addition will still be made, but in the end, experts still see the Michigan basketball team's 2012 recruiting class as one of the best in the country.
Rivals.com updated its top 150 players list for 2012 on Wednesday, moving future Wolverine Glenn Robinson III to the No. 11 overall player in the group and giving him a five-star ranking in the process.
Presently, Rivals ranks Michigan's 2012 haul as the fifth-best class in America.

The 6-foot-6 Robinson, a small forward from Lake Central High School in Saint John, Ind., is now a five-star prospect in both Rivals' and ESPN's current basketball rankings. He also passed Michigan State signee Gary Harris, a McDonald's All-American and Indiana's Mr. Basketball, on the Rivals' list.
Per the new Rivals.com rankings, Robinson becomes the top-rated prospect in the state of Indiana, ahead of Harris and Indiana point guard signee Yogi Ferrell.
Prior to Wednesday, Robinson was rated as the 34th-best player in America by Rivals.
Mitch McGary, a 6-foot-10, 263-pound power forward from Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H., lost his five-star status from Rival and is now rated as a four-star prospect, and the 30th-best player in the class.
Nik Stauskas, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard, moved up eight spots to No. 71 overall in the class. Stauskas is now the 12th-best shooting guard prospect for next season, one spot ahead of Michigan State signee Denzel Valentine.
The Wolverines are expected to add a fourth member to their 2012 class later Wednesday when they receive a national letter of intent from three-star point guard Spike Albrecht.
Albrecht's prep school coach, John Carroll, told AnnArbor.com on Wednesday that Albrecht has signed his letter. He is now waiting for signatures from his parents before officially faxing the letter to Michigan.
