I was watching ESPU's coverage of signing day a little while ago while home for lunch, and they did a short segment on what's going on with Michigan recruiting. The last part had the panel talking about UM, and Urban Meyer raved about the Mattison hire. Meyer said that in his opinion Michigan not only signed one of the best defensive minds in the country, but quote "the best recruiter in the country". Yes, Urban Meyer said Greg Mattison is the best recruiter on the country. He said that Mattison's recruiting style is parralleled by noone. Obviously everyone feels great about the hire, but hearing it again from someone of Meyer's caliber (hate him or live him) is pretty nice to hear. Hearing things like this is what make us all excited to see what Hoke and Co. can do next year with a full year of recruiting.
