WolverineNation runs a recruiting mailbag feature every other 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:

Q: Subscriber David49234: Brady Hoke seems to have a particular body type in mind for receivers and running backs. The 5-foot-9 running back and the 5-foot-10 wide receiver need not apply. I don't see Hoke recruiting Desmond Howard or Mike Hart. He seems bent on loading up on an extreme (bruising tailbacks/fullbacks, and 6-4 wideouts). I'm not saying this is a good or bad idea, but will we ever see a Desmond- or a Hart-type guy on the roster again?
