Can someone tell me why this is a smart move? I'm confused here. Does DickRod have any idea what he's doing anymore? Is QB the only position they recruit?
I'm no expert, but to give a guy, who hasn't played football since high school, a full-ride to a D1-A program like Michigan is pretty crazy. Is he athletic enough? Sure. But he's not in football shape. He's been living and breathing basketball the past four years. Not only that, he's 6'1" and 180lbs and has less than five months to get ready for the season.
I just don't see how it makes sense to use up a scholarship for this guy. Not too mention this is going to send a message to the other QBs that are at scUM competing for the job.
