HURRR HOMO TITLE! No. Shut up.
At this point, we all know that everyone's favorite basketball coach has an excellent talent for talent evaluation. He gets locked onto players and makes inroads before they blow up to top-100 guys. Hence Trey Burke and our next couple of incoming basketball classes.
The question I have is, do you think Hoke has some of that in him? Now, it may not matter as much, because at Michigan, a recruiter like Hoke can go after the nation's very top prospects and have an equal or better chance of bringing them in. HOWEVA! Our depth chart is going to be devoid of high level, upper-classman talent for the next couple of years yet, and we're gonna need Hoke to have success finding not just those guys that could be mega-stars once they develop this or that to the best of their ability, but the guys that others overlooked, that can step in and fill holes and win games, now.
I think he does. We saw it last year in players like Desmond Morgan, who certianly could've gone elsewhere and played, but in whom Hoke saw a guy he wanted to make a difference, now.
This year, we're gonna have holes in the D-Line and very weak depth in the O-line. We lack recievers. Our defensive backfield is improved, but Never Forget will take years to completely obliterate. We will be relying on guys like Ondre Pipkins, Willie Henry, Kalis, Magnuson, Braden, Darboh and Wilson. I expect to see all of them on the field sometime this year. And when they're there, they will have to perform.
Trey Burke was ready to perform after D-Mo left. Do you think Hoke has that same vision? I do.
