Per Lawrence Thomas, the No. 1 rated recruit in Michigan, when asked why he didn't go to Michigan: "Why not Michigan? They had problems. There were some past experiences with other Renaissance players that I didn't like. Plus, Rich Rodriguez sent an assistant to our school to recruit me. He wouldn't even send the defensive coordinator, just an assistant. Then we'd hear that Rich Rod would be in Florida recruiting." Wow. I'd like to hope that's not true, but it does seem to have been a bit of a pattern. Read through the rest. They're all going to say the same thing.
