Once the dust settles and Team 135 takes shape, Michigan coach Brady Hoke should have roughly 10 to 15 scholarships to disperse among recruiting class of 2015 prospects.
Doug Nussmeier, the new offensive coordinator and quarterback specialist, will likely have Michigan in the mix for the nation's top arms on an annual basis.
Michigan took just one in 2014, so filling that void is a goal for next year. However, quarterbacks are exempt from this countdown for a couple of reasons:
- Of four potential suitors, thre are committed, leaving Josh Rosen as the 2015 target to watch at the moment.
- Shane Morris and Wilton Speight aren't going anywhere any time soon.
Getting a quarterback is urgent, but Michigan is adjusting its game plan in that regard. Expect more action on that front as the months progress.
Building an offensive line is of high priority, and the same goes for stocking the cabinets with superbly talented running backs, wide receivers and utilitarians.
Greg Mattison, the defensive coordinator, is known for connecting with recruits. His Baltimore Ravens resume could serve as the golden ticket for preps looking forward to a career in the NFL. Mattison has aided the quest for the best and will continue doing so as long as he calls shots in Ann Arbor.
Target the prospect, analyze his potential role within the team, offer a scholly and hope he signs—that's the process.
