WolverineNation will be running Q&A’s with the parents of the Michigan commitments leading up to signing day to give their perspective on the recruiting process. Here is a look at what linebacker Joe Bolden’s father, Dan, had to say.

Q: Are you happy with the way your son's recruitment turned out?
