I don't really get why a lot of people are obsessed with recruiting the state of Michigan. Maybe, because I am not from Michigan I don't really understand it, but who cares if MSU gets the majority of instate kids? As long as we get the one or two or five that WE want I could really care less where the others go.
You think USC fans are upset that their starting WR's are from Arkansas and Michigan or that their RB is from Louisiana?
You think Florida fans were pissed everytime Percey Harvin touched the ball because he was from Virginia?
Hell, we won a National Championship with a QB from Miami and our best player was from Ohio.
Yes, its great to recruit your state and its important to keep those relationships with the HS coaches closest to you. But this is Michigan we are talking about. I for one still think we are a Top 10 program and shouldn't be throwing around scholarships to kids simply because they have a Michigan address. Let's go after the best kids available...I could care less if our entire team was from Alaska as long as we were playing for a title every five years.
