The overall article from ESPN (yes, I know) about the new coaches and recruiting isn't anything this board doesn't already know. (i.e. - one of the key qualifications of the new staff hires is their ability to recruit)
In the article, I did see this quote from Mustapha Muhammad which validates what many on the board have said about on-field performance impacting recruiting:
“Recruits go to the mainstream schools that are having a lot of success in the moment, if you look at Georgia and how they’re doing,” said ESPN 300 tight end Mustapha Muhammad, a Michigan commit. “In Michigan’s case, we didn’t have the best year and that’s why we missed on a few guys."
The bad news is that the season did impact some recruits (Friday & Ekiyor maybe?). The good news, if Michigan can have a good season in 2018, it can turn back around quickly.
