Assuming he sticks with Michigan (knock on wood), I think that he would benefit greatly by redshirting. It would be pretty hard for him to come in and win the starting job immediately so why not redshirt him and then burn it if the need for depth arises? While we're on the subject, how do most freshman feel about redshirting? If they're not expected to make an immediate impact then why not? I didn't understand why Feagin wanted to play so badly at the end of the year when it would cost him his redshirt.
this may be of some local interest
