"I think it means a whole lot to the university as a whole when you look at $100 million for academics and $100 million for athletics," Michigan coach Brady Hoke told reporters Wednesday.
Hoke said he spoke Wednesday with Ross.
"I'll be honest with you. The only thing he wanted to talk about was Jordan Kovacs being on his team," Hoke said.
Kovacs, a former Wolverines defensive back, earned a spot on the Dolphins' practice squad earlier this week as an undrafted free agent.
