With Rich Rod's reputation for offensive wizardry (and for wizard hats) I'm not surprised that he has been able to load up depth at skill positions on offense.
Depth is lacking on the defensive side of the ball. Two years in, I'm not suggesting that Michigan, under Rodriguez, can't or won't be able to recruit highly skilled defenders in sufficient number, but with his reputation and focus in line more with the offense, is there reason to be concerned that Michigan's defense will be overlooked relative to the offense?
Is RR heavily involved in recruiting on defense? I imagine having a head coach involved along with coordinators and positional coaches would have quite a strong effect on a recruit.
Maybe TomVH can chime in, does Michigan recruit defense with the same intensity it recruits offense?
Can GERG become a brand of his own that high school players will be interested to play in his system, the way offensive players are re: Rich Rod?
