Iowa's starting running back (actually a walk-on converted fullback) is out for this week's game against Penn State. That leaves..
True freshman Greg Garmon as the starter!! His backup being Jordan Canzeri who - wait for it - has not played a down sing tearing his ACL during spring ball.
Chicago (Ill.) Hales Franciscan junior offensive tackle prospect Denzel Ward (6-foot-9, 285 pounds) was able to add an offer from the Michigan Wolverines over the weekend when he was an unofficial visitor in Ann Arbor. Ward talks about adding his latest offer from one of his dream schools and much more in this update.
The article discusses a possible early commitment and calls Michigan one of his dream schools. I'm not saying buckle up, but don't be surprised if he pulls the trigger and commits early.
Denard, on which long run of his career is his favorite: "The next one."
Take a minute today and cherish the young man who represents the University of Michigan at quarterback.
Jake Ryan has been chosen as the Big 10 Defensive Player of the Week, the first of what I expect to be many such honors in his career.
Great honor for a sophomore LB. Here are a few quotes:
Ryan tied a career high with 11 tackles, including seven solo, 3.5 tackles-for-loss, 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble.
Ryan paces the Wolverines in 2012 in total tackles (42), solo stops (26), tackles-for-loss (7.5), sacks (2.5) and pass breakups (3), already setting career marks in tackles, stops for losses and pass breakups.
With 2 1/2 years remaining, Ryan has tremendous potential to end up as one of the best linebackers ever to play at Michigan. His ability to play on the line, to cover receivers, and to blitz and cover ground sideline to sideline give Michigan a huge advantage. He will only get better with more experience under Mattison.
Title says it all.
