Michigan receives a visit from Tom Brady

(Continued)

“No one is more humble than Tom; Charles is the same way,” Hoke said on the Eisen podcast. “We all came in the same year to Michigan, in 1995. Talk about guys who were highly competitive, were smart and had great work ethic. We all developed and gained things in those formidable years, (ages) 18-22. A lot of it came from inside but also came from the lessons learned at Michigan.”

Michigan holds Brady in high regard, despite his infrequent visits. In the recruiting lounge area that overlooks the indoor practice field, there are a few murals on the wall: one of Heisman Trophy winners, one of the Michigan Stadium, one of Bo Schembechler, one of the first night game and one of Brady.

Not bad for a quarterback who split time his junior and senior seasons and wasn’t really hailed by Michigan fans until his last game, winning the 2000 Orange Bowl in overtime.
