WolverineNation runs a recruiting mailbag feature every week and conducts a live chat in the weeks when the mailbag doesn't run. Here's a look at this week's questions from the readers:
Zach, Bay City, Mich.: With Urban Meyer rumored to be the next coach at Ohio State, how do you think that affects Michigan recruiting in Ohio? Do you think some of the Michigan commits, especially those from Ohio, would reopen their recruitment?
A: It's no secret that Urban Meyer had outstanding recruiting classes at Florida. He also already has ties to Ohio, so that will certainly help. However, it's difficult to gauge how much impact he would have on the 2012 class, because it's so late in the game.
If Urban Meyer were to become the next coach at Ohio State it would set up some epic recruiting battles with Greg Mattison, the Michigan defensive coordinator who coached under Meyere at Florida and whom Meyer called the nation's best recruiter.
