ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The Michigan fan base breathed a sigh of relief last week when Devin Gardner was awarded a medical redshirt, giving him an extra year with the Wolverines. That means he will be a redshirt junior next fall, and in 2014, he'll be a redshirt senior -- prompting some prognosticators to give the Wolverines a shot at the Big Ten and national titles that season.

It was a huge boost to Brady Hoke and the Wolverines, but it also has been a help on the recruiting trail.
