For those of you worried that the 2012 class will start off slowly because Hoke's late to the game, fear no more. Hoke got around a little bit today, visiting several top prospects. First, he checked in at Cass Tech, where former UM assistants Tony Dews and Tony Gibson checked in to offer a pair of Technician juniors, LB Royce Jenkins-Stone and CB Terry Richardson. In the article, it's mentioned that Hoke was in to see Coach Wilcher, and might be close to offering.
Michigan coach Brady Hoke was also by Cass Tech on Monday, as well as an assistant from Wisconsin. Richardson has seen a recent rise in his recruitment and feels he could be close to adding a few more offers.
“I think Michigan, Michigan State and USC are the three closest schools to offering next,” Richardson said.
In an article about RJS's offer from Pitt, he mentions that Michigan is showing strong interest in him, as well.
Other schools showing Jenkins-Stone strong interest are Auburn, LSU, Michigan and Michigan State.
The Scout Boards are reporting that, while Hoke was in Cincy to show interest in 2011 FB Trayion Durham, he checked in on Taft High School and 2012 super-recruit (and likely OSU lock), DE Adolphus Washington. FWIW, I like Wormley better (wink).
To look even further into the future, Scout had an article up today about 2013 MI QB Shane Morris. He goes to De La Salle Collegiate in Warren, and has two very early offers from Toledo and Cincy. Grew up a Michigan fan, but right now, MSU's showing more interest (legally...illegally...what does it really matter? Enjoy some highlights, the kid's definitely got a D1 arm.
