One of the first tasks for Robinson, who was expected back in town today, is to contribute to Michigan's recruiting efforts before National Signing Day on Feb. 4.

"I think the most important thing is to sit down with the other coaches and get a real idea about the personnel," he said. "I think so often you lock into what you're going to do before you realize what you have. You have to get an idea about what are your strengths and what are your weaknesses. Everybody has both, so there will be an evaluation process to get a feel for that."
