Mike Rothstein goes in-depth on Michigan’s recruiting approach. There’s some great stuff here, including quotes from the various Michigan assistants.
Bacari Alexander and LaVall Jordan hit on the obvious snag in Beilein’s philosophy:
“I wouldn’t say resistance,” Alexander said of the reaction on the recruiting trail. “But I would say a curiosity to why haven’t you offered my son yet or why haven’t you guys offered my player yet.”
“Especially when they have a list of [offers],” Jordan said. “That curiosity, when they have lists.”
However, the bottom line is that it’s worth waiting for a Michigan offer now. It’s a lot easier to wait to extend a scholarship offer when you can demand attention without one. A Big Ten Championship and a trip to the National Championship game seem to be doing the trick.
