Points of interest:

Both he and his father thought that Urban was a genuine guy.

It came down to Ohio and Michigan and Hoke put him over the hump by looking in him the eye and telling him that it didn't matter if he was the best or worst player on the team, Hoke would always be there for him.

His grandfather, an MSU fan, thought Michigan was the best place for him.

Mr. Harris coming off a lot better than I expected, nicely done sir. Looks like the folks that accused me of jumping the gun on my opinion in the other thread were correct. Can't wait to get this kid on campus.

Huge is kind of an ass-clown but he is actually a really good interviewer.

As for the interview, very good stuff and Drake and his dad did real well in the interview.  As much as I am not an Izzo fan, it sounds like he handled it like a class-act when Drake decommitted from MSU and hopes to remain as a mentor in his life.  As for Dantonio, you can tell Drake didn't want to talk about him and I bet he told the Huge before hand to keep the questions on him recruiting Drake to a bare minimal because it's obvious Dantonio didn't do much recruiting of him in the first place.

A little tidbit from the interview, it sounds like Michigan giving him a video presenting off all the great WR's wearing number 1 at Michigan really impressed Drake. Coming from someone who has seen quite a bit of his high school games the last couple of years, I am confident Drake could easily be the next WR to wear the number 1 jersey by the time he's a junior.

I thought that Izzo came off as pure class as well. I don't remember exactly what was said but it was along the lines of if Drake ever needs anything that Izzo would do what he can.

Mike Harris didn't sound at all like what people have been saying about him.  Huge was his usual, overbearing self, but even he was tolerable for this interview.  Drake didn't sound like a kid with a helicopter dad, either.  

They sound like an intelligent, well-balanced family.
