"Basically, they do the same thing with recruits at the spring game that they do for home football games. Now a lot of kids come in for the spring game, more than just recruits actually. For a recruit, it gives him a good feel for what it is like on game day at Michigan."
"Recruits will be shown the facilities. They will meet the training and weight staff. They'll see the stadium ... even though the scrimmage was not played at stadium this year, they would still take a recruits into the stadium if they haven't seen it before."
"Some will sit in on position meetings in the morning, before the scrimmage. Then there is the scrimmage itself."
"After spring game, some will meet with assistant coaches, or even Coach Carr. Recruits will get a tour of campus if they haven't been there before, and meet with academic advisors, and maybe with a professor in their possible major."
"It makes for a long day for the football staff, just as it is for a game day unofficial visit. But it is important for recruiting. Some of these kids may come from far away and may not be back again before an official visit."
