As I go through the positions for scouting reports each week, I reached defensive end . . . and I figured I would start off the DE position with everyone's favorite recruit, Da'Shawn Hand. Since Michigan is in his top five, he's a legitimate player for Michigan fans to follow. It's hard to imagine anyone beating him out for the #1 spot in 2014. The kid is a beast, and he supposedly spent quite a bit of time playing nose guard because that's where his team needed him, so he's versatile and a team-first guy.
"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
