This isn't necessarily "insider news," but a comment from Frank Clark that struck me as rather interesting and very encouraging. Clark is a 3 star TE/LB who will be visiting this weekend for his official. Frank Clark plays at Glenville. I think this kind of statement will help us, especially in 2012. My guess is for Clark it will come down to Michigan and Michigan State:
"I will be visiting Michigan next week, and I'm excited about that," he stressed. "I haven't really talked to the new coaching staff, but they have been talking to Coach (Ted) Ginn about me, and I know he respects the new guys a lot. They have been talking."
That right there is called Brady Hoke developing good relationships with Ohio Coaches, including one of the premier (if not the premier) HS coaches in the state.
