This is from an article from Sam Webb about Sentrel Henderson and his recruitment. The quote is from his mentor J.D. Pride:
"Nothing is a given out here on the field," he continued. "A perfect case is the Antonio Bass situation. Here is a kid that physically had everything. They are still ranting and raving about him at the Michigan complex. Unfortunately with no contact, this guy messed his knee up and caused some nerve damage. Well, it's over with. But you know what? I love that kid. I've known him for about five years, and what a standup kid. He dealt with the situation and he has continued to go on. He's going to graduate on time with a great degree from the University of Michigan. What character. What character! Those are the things that I stress with Seantrel, my son, or anybody. "
For the few recruits that actually mean "education is a big deal" this situation shines brightly for Michigan. Everyone knows how great Bass could have been, but the fact that Michigan kept him and helped him get an education shows the commitment Michigan has towards their STUDENT / athletes. Any incoming, or potential, player that thinks he will be just another disposeable body will see Bass's situation and know Michigan and their coaching staff really care about them and their life after Michigan and after football.
