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?

A: Yes. When you have control of the situation and it doesn't spin out and create a life of its own, I think the situation goes much better. You read sometimes that recruiting gets out of control if the kid or his family lets it get away from them. We're very happy with the way it went. Part of it is because we remained in control.
