ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Brady Hoke has proven there’s something to the mantra about getting out to a fast start, especially when it comes to recruiting. He and his staff don’t like signing day surprises and really don’t like any kind of surprises even in the months leading up to signing day, either.

This opinion -- like much between the programs -- stands in strong opposition to Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, who’s a notoriously strong closer and whose 2014 recruiting class currently ranks 12 spots behind Michigan at this point in the game.
