Michigan Football Recruiting: CoachBT’s Thoughts On Wolverine’s Offense Skilled Recruiting

Here are a few tidbits from CoachBT’s post on our message board. You can see the entire post on the message board.

2. Michigan staff was forced to rely more on shotgun style offense that featured running quarterback than I am sure they wanted to use. Star tailbacks are naturally going to still favor USC’s and Alabama’s who feature great tailbacks. Bama has won 2 of last 3 Heisman’s with tailbacks. Recruits want to be sure Michigan tailbacks will featured players.

4. Michigan scheme is still a bit of a mystery to most kids and until stud skilled position get a feel for what direction and message Coach Hoke and Coach Borges are going they will be cautious.

Bottom Line:

What Michigan coaching staff achieved last season was amazing and I hope it does not make the faithful think every season will be that way. Michigan is still going to have some growing pains, don’t be surprised if opener of 2012 season does not highlight this.

Eroc will vouch, I attended practices and camps during RR’s tenure and I just never had the same feeling/sense that things were getting better/team was heading in the right direction.
