I read some of the discussion about recruiting earlier in the day particularly regarding us going after top prospects. This guy Olaniyan (duke decommit) is only ranked #124 in the ESPN 150 as a 6'2" 200lb LB/DE but has amazing speed and explosiveness (check out video). I think he fits the mold for a stevie brown type position though he is currently a little undersized at 200lb. My point is if we recruit guys like this we'll have a defense that nobody in the big ten will be able to compete with. I think this may be RichRod's plan to force the bigten's elite teams to follow suit to keep up with us in the future.
"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
