Here's the link in case I still haven't figured out how to embed.
EDIT: quickly pointed out that this should have been an OMG Shirtless post. I'm ashamed.

Mlive has a write up about Wilton Speight and Freddy Canteen turning heads. While the Speight news is good to hear and the majority of the article was about him, he probably has little likelihood of playing this year. Canteen would help tremendously in the slot this year.
I just thought these were interesting little tidbits/confirmations:
Per Mark Snyder, Coach Mallory says that Dymonte Thomas will be strictly a safety this spring. I love this, clearly.
Per Nick Baumgardner, Coach Hoke says that Freddy Canteen is "truly a slot guy", which leads me to believe that he'll play pretty early, considering the only other true slot guy is Norfleet (and maybe Hayes?)
And per Zach Helfand, Hoke said that Noah Furbush cut his own cast off using a hedge trimmer because he wanted to play so badly. Early nominee for #want of the year.
It's official--we've added seven players to the Michigan family:
- Drake Harris
- Wilton Speight
- Bryan Mone
- Freddy Canteen
- Brandon Watson
- Michael Ferns
- Mason Cole
I believe all seven of these guys are future starters. But who will make an impact in 2014? The guy with the best chance on paper is Bryan Mone, since we don't have any established players at NT. But I'm going to pick Freddy Canteen, who has freakish quickness and good speed (reported to have run a 4.43 40). If he's half the technician he appears to be on tape and is a willing blocker, then his EE conditioning might get him into the line-up early. Drake Harris is another possibility.
Speight is up against two good QBs with game experience, Watson is on a depth chart with a plethora of quality DBs (that felt good to say), Ferns is one of many talented LBs, and, finally, we should be able to redshirt all of our incoming OL, so Cole should get a year of seasoning,
Welcome to the family, and GO BLUE!
