Last year, Michigan went 4-4 in head to head recruiting battles against Michigan State. This year, Hoke and his staff are off to an 8-0 start!
Against Ohio State last year, Michigan went 0-12(!) head to head on the recruiting trail. Currently, Michigan is 1-2 (1 of Ohio St. commits being Brionte Dunn, who has legitimate interest in Michigan).
Compared to last year's results, Michigan recruiting has taken a complete 180. Rather than beating the Illinois and Pittsburghs of the world, Michigan is going head to head with Alabama, Oklahoma, and Ohio State for recruits. Let's hope that Hoke and Co. can keep it up!
