ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan coach Brady Hoke surprised quite a few people last summer when he extended a scholarship offer to long snapper Scott Sypniewski (Ottawa, Ill./Marquette). The general consensus among fans was puzzlement as they wondered why the scholarship wouldn’t go to a more “valuable” skill player, where the Wolverines were struggling to get commits.

However, according to Jeremy Miller, former Michigan long snapper and one of Sypniewski’s coaches, the decision was the correct one.
