Michigan defensive line coach Greg Mattison is No. 4 on ESPN Recruiting Nation's latest recruiter power rankings.

"Few recruiters are as savvy as Mattison, and that has paid off with a tremendous late-season recruiting push in the 2016 class," says ESPN Recruiting Nation's Jeremy Crabtree. "He started out solid with ESPN 300 prospects (DE) Ronald Johnson Jr. and (G) Ben Bredeson and four-star (DE) Carlo Kemp, but luring (DT Jordan) Elliott away from Big 12 and SEC recruiters was something truly special. Not many would have been able to pull that off, especially in the competitive Lone Star State recruiting battleground, but Mattison did. Now the Wolverines have an impact defensive tackle they've been coveting."
