I think we should use Hokus Pocus as the new snake oil term. Whenever Hoke can work his magic to bring a certain recruit who was committed elsewhere, we can say it was Hokus Pocus!
I was really looking for ward to this, but I guess it was not to be.
This article in Rivals mentions a few very probable hires that will be coming with Hoke from his SDSU staff. Underwhelming at first glance. One of them coaches running backs which could be bad for the re-hire of Fred Jackson, but the guy has other position experience so perhaps FJ will be retained. We need Fred for continuity and to solidify Hayes and Rawls (should he qualify) and of course for his unique analytical skills
let's at least get his DC.
Dan Gerberry is now the backup Center to Dominic Raiola for the Detroit Lions. He played for Brady Hoke at Ball State for four years. In this article he gave a little insight as to what may happen in Michigan's upcoming practice.

Speaking of running, I believe that Stephen Hopkins will see a big jump in his number of carries for this upcoming year. I'm sure Hoke wont shy away from a 230 pound RB.
