Brady Hoke trying to hold class together 

January, 18, 2011
Former Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez was on his way to assembling a solid but not spectacular recruiting class for the Michigan Wolverines with 15 commitments, including running back Demetrius Hart (Orlando, Fla./Dr. Phillips).

Although the class has not completely fallen apart with the firing of Rodriguez earlier this month, it has taken a hit, including Hart changing his commitment from Michigan to Alabama. Defensive back Dallas Crawford (Fort Myers, Fla./South Fort Myers) is another highly regarded prospect who had committed to Michigan but decommitted after Rodriguez was let go.

New Michigan coach Brady Hoke has his work cut out for him with just more than two weeks to go before national signing day on Feb. 2.
