Just a quick question for TomVH and others that might know -
Rich Rodriguez established a preferred walk-on program at Michigan which had a number of players added to UM's roster over the last few years. I'm a firm believer that walk-ons can be very good contributors, as they have been at places like Nebraska, Stanford, and other schools.
Do we know whether this "preferred walk-on" program might continue under Hoke?
There are a few players that were/are coming to Michigan with that understanding, such as Traverse City fullback Joey Kerridge. Keeping a No. 16 ranked fullback coming to Michigan would be a good thing, I would think, given Borges'/Hoke's love affair with battering ram ISO plays not to mention an extra blockeror safety valve receiver on play action passes, etc. (Hello waggle pass to FB in the flat!...and touchdown!! Where have you been?)
I'm hoping this walkon program or a derivative thereof can continue at Michigan, especially if Hoke wants to sink the roots in deeper with H.S. coaches and players in the state of Michigan.
