Could the recruiting magic be over for Brady Hoke? He pulled in one of the top classes in the nation in 2013, but he seems to be struggling with his top in-state recruits. 247 sports has 8 players listed as college prospects from the state of Michigan. Most of them have already commited, including five of the top six prospects. Not a single one has commited to Michigan. The number two and five recruits have went to Sparty. Three and six are with OSU, and the number four prospect in the state is going to Wisky (yeah Wisconsin is in Brady's base and stealin his dudes).
Look Hoke is a good coach and a good recruiter, so don't think this is a "LOL NO 1 WANTS TO PLY FOR MISHIGIN!" thread. I'm sure he will bring in another good haul of players, but it is weird that so many of their in-state prospects have decided to leave this early in the game. Look at our two recruits from Michigan. Damon Webb is from Cass Tech, scUM's number one pipeline school. And then you look at Lawrence Marshall, who by all accounts scUM was going at him hard, and he left his home state. What do you guys think? Does Tsun just not want these guys and they're letting them get away? Or is it a sign their having some problems getting kids to go to their school?
