Michigan Football Recruiting: Tidbits From MaizeMan — Thoughts on Green

1) Thoughts on Green

First let me say I was wrong about Green.

At one time I posted or at least mentioned in Chat that Green would NOT come to Michigan and that I was hoping he would NOT. Truth is I really thought that Green was the type of kid who like many highly rated players was going to be way too high maintenance for Michigan and because of that Michigan coaches would eventually lose its aggressiveness in their recruiting of Green.

MY gut feeling on this one was way off, Green as it turns out is a “workout warrior” a kid who has really dedicated himself to losing weight, gets up daily at 5:00 AM and runs upwards of five miles. This along with a very tough strength program, kid seems to know how to work.

Welcome to Michigan!

2) Just a thought:
I wonder how many childish posts on all of the Michigan recruiting sites we would now be reading if Green would of gone to Tennessee or Auburn.

You can bet, Green was either taking money, that the schools were dirty, maybe we would even read the common post that Michigan lost interest in Green and really did not want him.

My Point:
Recruiting has its problems, I am not naive, but as I have always maintained, kids make decisions based on various issues and in modern day college football Michigan has a great deal to offer, but it is tough, much tougher than in the past.

3) Michigan’s recruiting is probably done for 2013 class.
Its possible we get one more, but more the most part, its over.

I think the approach next year, besides quarterback position, in which I think we take two is simply to recruit the best player, athletically, no matter what the position.

Michigan, still needs athletes and I think instead of looking at position groups and taking a predetermined number for that position, instead take the best players available.
