The border war between the Michigan football program and the Ohio State Buckeyes has intensified over the past two seasons with the arrivals of head coaches Brady Hoke and Urban Meyer.
Under Hoke, the Wolverines are 1-1 against the Buckeyes. Dominating on the recruiting trail has also been important to Hoke since being named head coach. Hoke has reeled in back-to-back top-10 classes, which proves Michigan is once again a dream destination for the top prospects in the country.
There are four pitches Hoke has been able to use to lure recruits to Ann Arbor. These same selling points will help Hoke outpace Meyer in key upcoming recruiting battles as well.
