Recruiting Intro: With Michigan failing to close on a DT in the 2011 class, the position now becomes a priority in 2012 recruiting. Brady Hoke will be looking to take at least two quality prospects, and O’Brien could be the best available. He could end up as a top two player in the state of Michigan. Fortunately Michigan has already offered him. It looks like it will be a UM vs Tennessee battle the whole way, and whilst I’d say the Wolverines are favorites right now, Derek Dooley has proven himself to be a good recruiter in the past; D Arnett!
