QB recruiting evolves to fit new scheme 

February, 12, 2013
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan’s quarterback situation this year was a round-hole, square-peg deal no matter how coaches, players or fans tried to look at it.

Denard Robinson was a dynamic athlete and could make things happen, but it wasn’t what Brady Hoke or Al Borges was accustomed to. And when Devin Gardner stepped in, it was a bit more pro-style, but still, not the same as what the pair had experienced success with in the past.

Now, the Wolverines will spend the next few seasons adjusting into what will become their offense. And with that adjustment, the main proponent will be whom the Wolverines put at quarterback, and with Shane Morris (Warren, Mich./De La Salle) signed on in 2013 and Wilton Speight (Richmond, Va./Collegiate School) committed for 2014, Michigan is clearly making moves to change to a more typical pro-style offense.
