"Exit Interview" is a concept started at WolverineNation last year where we chat with players leaving Michigan about their experiences with the Wolverines and in some cases what's next.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- When Roy Roundtree committed to Michigan over Purdue at the last minute then-Boilermakers coach Joe Tiller went on the offensive. Tiller blasted then-Wolverines coach Rich Rodriguez as "a guy in a wizard hat selling snake oil" for swiping Roundtree.
Roundtree's flip ended up a major benefit for Michigan. The No. 104 receiver in the Class of 2008, Roundtree ended up as the only receiver in Michigan history to have 200 yards in one game (246 against Illinois in 2010). He finished his career sixth in catches (154), sixth in yards (2,304) and tied for 11th in touchdowns (15).
Wide receiver Roy Roundtree saw his numbers dip severely when Brady Hoke came aboard, but he kept his head up, remained a team leader and still made his fair share of big plays.
