Okay guys, it's time to put an end to all these 3 star, 4 star debates. I mean it is just getting annoying now. At West Virginia, RichRod had mostly 2 star recruits with a few 3 stars thrown into the mix. West virginia was not a powerhouse so RichRod had to make due. That was how it was then. Now at Michigan it is quite different. In the 2009 class, he recruited mostly 4 stars with a few 3 stars thrown into the mix. Even a 5 star! The difference is, RichRod is getting more highly rated players here then he got at West Virginia. He seemed to make due pretty well there, so why not assume he will here? People need to understand that Michigan will most likely never have a top 5 class with RichRod as the coach. We go after the should be 4 star players that are overlooked due to certain factors. People put such a great deal on stars yet RichRod could care less. He finds guys that will work their ass off to get better. He wants hungry players that want to win. MOTIVATION plays a huge role in this. He recruits quite a few players that get told they are too small or too slow. These players get told they are not good enough or talented enough. These players get overlooked and get offers from mid-grade schools like Pitt or Florida State. The big schools overlook them. RichRod is a man that believes every player deserves a chance. He gives these 3 stars a chance to prove themselves. These players are then MOTIVATED to outwork these 4 star players. A LOT of these 3 star players that RichRod goes after would be 4 star players if it wasn't because of certain factors. (Size, Smaller School, Injury, etc.)
RichRod takes a chance on these players and I think many of them understand that. RichRod gave me a chance when everyone else told me I was no good. I'm going to show those schools I deserved an offer from them.
Plus people with Barwis, we can EASILY develop these 3 stars. Fuck stars, give me kids that will work their ass off and will fit the system.
