I recently interviewed Van Bergen for the Muskegon Chronicle and the subsequent article was released today. Most of the quotes used in the article were relatively straightforward, but some of the quotes that I was unable to add were among the most interesting to me (paraphrased obv.):
He believes Cam Gordon is going to be a star and said the same about Courtney Avery.
He thinks Pryor's story would have been different if he had committed to U of M.
He doesn't care about OSU bending the rules in regards to them beating us seven straight years.
The Denard-to-transfer talk was way overblown. Denard loves the Michigan family and appreciates the tradition. Wants to leave his own legacy behind.
Hoke shoots straight with the players and his honesty with recruits is helping him.
Just thought I'd share these with you guys.
