I read the interview with O'Brien, and he was quoted as saying Michigan only wants to sign one interior defensive lineman in the 2012 class. I also know Hoke stated he wants to come away with one QB in the 2012 class. We all know Michigan is limited on the number of scholarships available, and we also know there are two beasts at defensive tackle that are considering Michigan -- Danny O'Brien and Ondre Pipkins. While I think there is a strong chance to land both, I would hate to see one walk away after the first signs. I was thinking I would much rather see Pipkins and O'Brien commit, and then we could forego a QB in the 2012 class to compensate for taking an extra DT. With Denard, Gardner, and Bellomy on the roster and Morris coming in 2013, I feel we are strong at QB. Of course this would likely force Hoke into signing a 2nd QB in 2013 for depth, but that would be okay, because DT is a position of need coming up within the next two years. The worst case scenario occurring by not signing a qb in 2012 is Michigan would have to burn Morris' redshirt if there were a major injury at QB. Ultimately, I would rather see Pipkins and O'Brien at DT two or three years from now, as opposed to a QB who is sitting 3rd on the depth chart.
What are your thoughts on this?
