SOUTHFIELD, Mich. -- Brady Hoke stood up and started pacing on the stage Wednesday afternoon in the Southfield High School auditorium, addressing some players who are already committed to Michigan, others he is trying to recruit and more still who will never have a shot to play for the Wolverines.

The second-year Michigan coach was invited to speak at the Sound Mind Sound Body Academy and spent a little more than 18 minutes touching on a variety of topics, ranging from explaining to the high school players there how he starts a team meeting with his players to the importance of senior leadership and accountability.

“It was tailored a little bit for what these kids are going through,” Hoke said. “What we try and go through to give them an image of who we are and what we are all about.”
