Will Jabrill Peppers stay committed to Michigan? Or will he choose to explore other options, as he recently announced on Twitter?
Ranked as the No. 1 overall ATH of the 2014 class by 247Sports, Peppers would immediately add energy, excitement, athleticism and skill to the Wolverines secondary.
And the return game.
And the kicking game.
And the equipment-managing game.
He wants to do everything, and that includes being better than Charles Woodson.
But right now, Michigan fans want him to focus on one task, and one task only: Remaining true to Hoke and Team 135. Holding onto Peppers should be the No. 1 priority of the offseason.
Wilton Speight (2014 QB)
Speight is the successor to the No. 1 job. At 6'6", he touts a big arm and adequate mobility that makes him perfect for the role of pro-style gunner in Al Borges' offense. Shane Morris may be viewed as the true next in line, but don't pass by Speight.
Michael Ferns (2014 LB)
Ferns enters Michigan as the No. 6-ranked linebacker of his class. He commands a 4-star rating from 247Sports and the prototypical Ohio-bred defender, a breed that has been more than kind to Wolverines football.
Drake Harris (2014 WR)
Courted by Alabama, Ohio State and once committed to Michigan State, Harris' arrival is among the most anticipated during the Hoke era of recruiting. Harris was a symbol of Michigan's resurgence in local recruiting.
To win the Big Ten, the Wolverines must first win over the Great Lakes State. Ownership of the backyard is paramount.
Harris will probably prove worthy of fighting for, so expect him to see the field early and often.
Lawrence Marshall (2014 DE)
The No. 10-ranked weak-side defense end could fight for a spot on the line in 2014. Athletic at 6'3" and 225 pounds, Marshall has the potential to be an excellent pass-rusher.
Damien Harris (2015 RB), George Campbell (2015 WR)
In an effort to stay glued to next year, there won't be much speculation beyond 2014 in this slideshow. However, it's difficult not to worry about the current state of a few high-end recruits, such as Harris, a 5-star tailback who committed to the 2015 class this past July.
Campbell is the No. 1-ranked receiver of the 2015 haul. Getting a commitment from Campbell was a great sign for the offense, which will need a corps of big-bodied wideouts to sustain title runs. At 6'3" and 184 pounds, Campbell fits such a mold.
Since taking over in 2011, Hoke has slid backward. He won 11 games with another coach's recruits, but he posted an 8-5 mark in 2012 and 7-5 (pending bowl game) mark this year.
Will that influence Harris and Campbell in a negative manner? They have enough time to rethink their decisions. Winning, though, will aide in keeping them set on joining Michigan.
