In his first season as Michigan head coach, Brady Hoke led the Wolverines to a 10-win season and a BCS bowl victory. Since he arrived in Ann Arbor, Hoke has made it clear that returning the Michigan football program to national relevance and glory is of the highest importance to him.
He coined the term 'This is Michigan,' changed the culture of the program and has now restored what was lost in the Rich Rod era: showing the players what a tremendous privilege it is to be a Michigan Wolverine.
Hoke's influence was not limited to on-field success, though, as he was equally successful recruiting. In his first complete year of recruiting, Brady Hoke has led Michigan to arguably one of the top five classes in the country. With National Signing Day behind us, the 2012 Michigan recruiting class is all but set in stone and it is time to see what high school studs accept the privilege of becoming a Wolverine.
Here are the top 10 Michigan recruits that will make an impact next fall for the Maize and Blue.
