Speight, Wilton 3 QB 1 Sr. 6'6" 243 Starter n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
O'Korn, John 8 QB 2 Sr. 6'4" 215 Backup n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Sessa, Michael 6 QB 6 Fr. 6'8" 205 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Wilton Speight will start, and probably be Offensive Captain. Speight on August 16 O'Korn on August 16 Speight and O'Korn on August 11-BTN Speight on April 15 Speight on April 6 Speight on March 24; he has lost 20 lbs. Senior John O'Korn is again the backup; he has been impressive in Fall Drills; he gives us a true running threat. Redshirt Brandon Peters was impressive in the Spring game, but "separation" has been made by the other two. Peters Inerview Peters on April 15 Alex Malzone has been injured; he rolled his ankle, and didn't do much this Spring according to Harbaugh. Dylan McCaffrey will most likely redshirt. Michael Sessa is also getting reps. Shane Morris transferred to Central Michigan. QB Preview Joe Milton has pledged for 2018!  Kyle Grady has pledged as a Preferred Walk-on! Will James Graham also pledge?

Jay Harbaugh on August 21

Jay Harbaugh on April 13

Running Back (Tailback)

Evans or Higdon
Isaac/Walker

Evans, Chris 12 RB 1 So. 5'11" 200 Starter 4.4 n/a n/a n/a n/a
Higdon, Karan 22 RB 2 So. 5'10" 189 Backup 4.5 n/a n/a n/a n/a
Isaac, Ty 32 RB 3 Sr. 6'3" 242 Backup n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Walker, Kareem 6 RB 3 Fr. 6'1" 207 Redshirt 4.5 n/a n/a n/a n/a
Wilson, Tru 20 RB 5 Fr. 5'10" 190 Walk-on 4.5 n/a n/a n/a n/a
Samuels, O'Maury 23 RB 6 Fr. 5'10" 188 Recruit n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Hewlett, Joe 27 RB 7 Sr. 6'0" 195 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Taylor, Kurt 5 RB 8 Fr. 5'9" 200 Recruit n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Char, Jared 44 RB 9 Fr. 6'0" 190 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Karan Higdon has looked outstanding in Fall Camp, and could start over Chris Evans, but both will see plenty of action. Evans on December 11 Evans on April 5 Higdon on April 14 Redshirt Kareem Walker and Ty Issac will also see action. Drake Johnson was granted his 6th year of eligibility on June 22; however, he decided to concentrate on track to be eligible for the 2020 Olympics. O'Maury Samuels and Kurt Taylor could help if needed, but the four backs will share time on offense. Tru Wilson and Joe Hewlett are very capable backups as well. We have the pledge of Christian Turner for 2018. Who else will we add?

H-Back (Fullback)

Poggi/Hill
Mason

Hill, Khalid 80 H-Back 1 Sr. 6'2" 263 Starter n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Poggi, Henry 19 H-Back 2 Sr. 6'4" 257 Backup 4.7 n/a n/a n/a n/a
Mason, Ben 42 H-Back 3 Fr. 6'2.5" 247 Recruit n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Beneducci, Joe 30 H-Back 4 Sr. 5'9" 212 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Brown, Matt 33 H-Back 4 Fr. 6'0" 220 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Hirsch, Michael 41 H-Back 4 Sr. 6'1" 245 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Plocki, Tyler 49 H-Back 4 Fr. 6'1" 215 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Chu, Brian 35 H-Back 8 Sr. 5'10" 223 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Dantzer, Travis 45 H-Back 8 Fr. 6'1' 225 Walk-on N/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Dickow, Spencer 39 H-Back 8 Jr. 6'0" 237 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Volk, Nick 40 H-Back 8 Sr. 5'11" 250 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Henry Poggi  Poggi on August 8 (Poggi on April 5) and Khalid Hill (Hill on April 11) will see the brunt of the action; however, Ben Mason has had an outstanding Fall Camp, and he will see action as well. I don't think Michael Hirsch is on the team anymore.  Jared Wangler may have moved over from linebacker. The coaches would like Hill to lose weight. Tyler Plocki and Matt Brown have walked-on.

CommentsTarik Black and Donovan Peoples-Jones are in a "fight" for starter to replace Amara Darboh at the X outside wideout; both will play. Black in Spring Game Walk-on Nate Schoenle also looked good in the Spring game. Nico Collins has looked good in Fall Camp, and will see action. Mo Ways is a capable blocker, but is losing ground to new Frosh. Ways on April 11  Tarik Black Interview Donovan Peoples-Jones Interview Simeon Smith may have left the squad. Will we add Kamryn Babb (torn ACL), Amon Ra St. Brown, Jahan Dotson, Jalen Hall, or others?

Wide Receiver-Z

Crawford
Perry/N.Johnson/McDoom/O.Martin

Crawford, Kekoa 1 Z Wide Receiver 1 So. 6'2" 195 Starter 4.62 n/a n/a n/a n/a
Martin, Oliver 2 Z Wide Receiver 2 Fr. 6'1" 195 Recruit n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Johnson, Nate 25 Z Wide Receiver 3 So. 5'11" 185 Backup 4.47 n/a n/a n/a n/a

Kim, ? 43 Z Wide Receiver 9 Fr. 5'10" 190 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Kekoa Crawford will start. McDoom hopes for a Big Year. Oliver Martin has had a solid Fall Camp, and has asserted himself for early action. Nate Johnson could also earn playing time. Eddie McDoom is lighting fast, and dangerous on Jet Sweeps. McDoom on August 19. Defensive Backs Coach Brian Smith stated that Nate Johnson and Tarik Black have given his unit the most problems on cover this Spring. Jack Young, Evan Latham and Jake McCurry have walked-on.

Tight End


Wheatley
McKeon/Gentry/Bunting/Eubanks 

Wheatley, Tyrone TJ 17 TE  1 So. 6'6" 276 Starter n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Veingrad, Ryan 99 TE 10 Jr. 6'4" 248 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: T.J. Wheatley has been the most physical tight end in Fall Drills; he has lost 20 lbs., and is also looking good for the passing game as well. Sean McKeon has been impressive in the Fall as well, and is the probable backup. McKeon on August 18. Zach Gentry will also be a contributor especially in 3rd down, and obvious passing plays. Gentry on August 19. Ian Bunting was injured in the Spring, and it limited his playing time. Nick Eubanks will play in different "packages," and is a real threat in the passing game. Chris Hanlon, Carter Selzer and Ryan Veingrad have walked on; Selzer was mentioned by Harbaugh as an early standout.  Veingrad beats cancer to become Michigan Preferred Walk-On Devin Asiasi has transferred to UCLA with Coach Fisch. Luke Schoonmaker has pledged for 2018! Will we add Mustapha Muhammad, Luke Ford, Michael Ezeike and/or others?

Stueber, Andrew 71 RT 3 Fr. 6'6" 285 Recruit n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Juwan Bushell-Beatty has been impressive in Fall Camp, and should start.  Jon Runyan, Nolan Ulizio and Chuck Filiaga are battling for backup along with converted defensive lineman, James Hudson. Bushell-Beatty on April 6 Grant Newsome will take a redshirt, then he could go on medical scholarship; he could possibly compete in 2018 if rehab works. Will we add Daniel Faalele, James Ohonba, Jerome Carvin, or others?

Speight, Jess 60 RG 4 Fr. 6'4" 275 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Michael Onwenu will start at Right Guard; he is up to 372 lbs., and the coaches would like him to lose weight. Onwenu on March 31 Cesar Ruiz has made a big push for playing time at Right Guard, and is also backing up Center and Left Guard. Walk-on Andrew Vastardis is the next backup. Anthony Kay, Greg Froelich, and Dan Jokisch are walk-on backups. David Dawson transferred to Iowa State, but then left their program to go to Morgan State. Will 2018 pledge Emil Ekiyor start on offense or defense?

Comments: Bryan Mone will start. Mone on August 11 Mone on March 31 Aubrey Solomon may rotate in behind Mone as he has looked good in Fall Drills.

Defensive Tackle


Hurst
Dwumfour/Marshall/Gary

Hurst, Maurice 73 DT 1 Sr. 6'2" 282 Starter n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Johnson, Ron 97 DT 6 Fr. 6'4" 245 Redshirt 4.6 n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Mo Hurst will start as he is "unblockable." Hurst on April 15 Michael Dwumfour has looked good in Fall Drills. Lawrence Marshall has moved inside, and will probably back Hurst up. James Hudson and Deron Irving-Bey have also asserted themselves for playing time in Fall Drills; however, James Hudson is now practicing on the offensive line. Salim Makki and Carl Myers are walk-ons; Myers has made significant improvements, and is up to 290 lbs. Aiden Hutchinson has pledged for 2018. Will we add Tyler Friday and/or Rick Sandidge?

January 1 BCS Semi-Final at Rose Bowl vs. ?

January 8 BCS National Championship at Atlanta vs ?

Comments on schedule:  We start with a Florida team that hasn't lost a season opener since 1989, will Malik Zaire be their starter? Teams will be attacking us in the air where we are untested and vulnerable; if they take early leads on us, it will put pressure on Speight and our offense to respond, and establish a running game. Former Buckeye Defensive Coordinator, Luke Fickell, will try to make a statement when they invade Ann Arbor. Air Force always has a tough ground game to defend. Composite Big Ten Schedule Michigan's first Big Ten Conference game is at West Lafayette with new Boilermaker Coach, Jeff Brohm.  After a Bye Week, the Wolverines will host arch-rival Michigan State in a possible night game. The next two games will be on the road with Indiana with new Coach, Tom Allen, with three former Wolverines on his staff, Mike Hart, Nick Sheridan and Mike DeBord; defending Conference Champion Penn State who'll be looking for revenge for last season's, 49-10, drubbing and ending Michigan's three game winning streak in the series in a probable night game. Rutgers will close October at Michigan Stadium in one of the easiest games on the schedule, and the Gophers will attempt to win back the Brown Jug in November with new Coach P.J. Fleck. Two more road test face Michigan at Maryland and Wisconsin prior to closing their season with National Contender, Ohio State, who we haven't defeated since 2011, and only defeated three times in the century in 17 meetings. Our leading tacklers should be McCray, Bush and Hudson with Gary and Hurst leading in Sacks. Who will force the most turnovers? On Offense, Chris Evans should gain the most rush yards with Donovan Peoples-Jones with most receiving yards; will both go over 1,000 yards each?  In the kicking game, Nordin should be our leading scorer, but Khalid Hill will be our touchdown leader for goal line situations. It is a very challenging schedule, will Harbaugh and his troops be up to the challenge? We start the season ranked #9 in Pre-Season polls with Ohio State coming in ranked #2, Penn State #6, Wisconsin #10, Florida #16 with Minnesota, Michigan State, and Maryland all garnering at least some ranking votes. In the West Division, Wisconsin is favored to be in the Big Ten Championships game with Ohio State; however, Northwestern and Nebraska are threats, and both Minnesota and Iowa will be competitive. Who's got it better than us???
