"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
Michigan Football RR Recruiting
I'm not understanding RR and his recruits. In 2008 all his recruits for the most part were smaller guys with a couple exceptions. Now as the 2009 class starts to take shape, all the guys are way taller and seem more like typical pro set style guys. The only exception would be Tony Drake. Why are we pretty much recruiting the reverse type of guy that we recruited in 2008? It doesn't make sense. Why can't we just have high profile players? I know RR needs players to run his offense. But I mean come on. Don't you guys think it is a little too early to be offering 3 stars offers? I think we need more highly rated recruits. For example, we go from barely 6 foot Forcier and Robinson to 6 foot 4 Gardner. We go from 5 foot 6 midget Vincent Smith to 6 foot 220 pound Hopkins.
