U-M recruiting on solid ground

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Every other week, Chantel and Tom invite other RecruitingNation writers to weigh in on some issues surrounding Michigan football. This week, ESPN national recruiting analysts Tom Luginbill and Craig Haubert stop by WolverineNation to talk Michigan recruiting just two days before national signing day.

1) Does it surprise you that Brady Hoke and his staff have been able to secure top talent so quickly?

Luginbill: No, because the proof is in the pudding. He has recruited well and quickly at both Ball State and San Diego State, and his history with the Michigan program as an assistant coach gave him and his staff unique insight to the inner dynamics of Michigan's program and what it takes. He has a clear vision of what their identity is and the type of player it will take to execute their plan in all three phases of the game.
