While several positions up for grabs this spring, quarterback isn’t one of them. Senior Denard Robinson has continued to progress in his second season running Al Borges offense.
“I think he’s done a good job with ball security, which he’s been pretty good with that,” said Hoke. “I think in his decisiveness and throws, I think he’s made some really good throws. I can’t say I’ve seen him make a bad throw but maybe once or twice where you go what the heck was he looking at? I think he’s done a good job, I think the mastering of the offense or whatever you want to call it, I think he’s a little better.”
The need for seniors to step up and take ownership of team 133 has been watched under very closely throughout spring practice, and to the delight of the coaching staff, it has happened.
“I think (Roy) Roundtree and (Jordan) Kovacs are two guys (leading), I think Patrick Omameh, I think he’s been a guy who’s done a good job,” said Hoke. “Will Campbell’s done a good job, I think, I’d be remised if I forgot to name a lot of those seniors but I think they’re really understanding that this is the way we want to go about our business.”
It will be business as usual Saturday for the wolverines, with depth issues, mainly across the offensive line, the scrimmage portion of the spring game will consist of roughly 60 plays.
