2012 Walk-ons

Submitted by JCM26 on December 14th, 2011 at 3:09 PM

Does anyone have an up-to-date listing of walk-ons for 2012?  Which walk-on or former walk-on may  contribution significantly in the upcoming season - now that Will Heininger is graduating?

Nathan Brink's name keeps getting brought up. The coaches seemed to be talking him up a lot in fall practice, but he didn't do too much in games. Still, they seem to like him a lot and he could end up being a Heininger-type contributor down the road. That conjecture is based solely on the fact that the coaches have been giving him a lot of praise.

I have a feeling Bo Dever will make his mark one way or another at Michigan.  Not saying he will play a huge role, but I can certainly envision situations where it will be beneficial to have an extra 6'-2" receiver on the field.

Wasn't their some kid we talked about on here who was getting Prefered Walk-On status at OL who was ridiculously big and was a wrestler in high school and a Jehovah's Witness? I don't remember anything else about him but that.

The coaches have said nothing but positive things about Nathan Brink and he got some PT this year as just a sophomore.  Guessing he will at least be in the mix again next year.

Burzynski, Glasgow, Gunderson, and Mateus (two of whom saw garbage time minutes this year) are going to get a lot of reps in spring ball before the big freshman class comes in on the o-line.  Doubt any of them come too close to cracking the starting lineup with 4 starters back plus Mealer and Khoury as seniors, but if any of them have a shot at playing down the road now would be their chance to prove it.

There was a walk on WR on the team whose name I had forgotten, and when I went to look him up on the roster, he wasn't there. He was from Dearborn and had MAC offers, does anyone know what happened to him?

Also, I just found a different walk on WR on the roster - Jonathon Keizer. He's 6'5" 205lbs. Not sure on his talent, but that's a big WR.

Outside of paywalls (mainly on this site) it's been reported that:

Kenny Allen Rivals 2-star #14 K
Bo Dever NR WR

Have commited as preferred walk-ons.

Lots of chatter about

Dan Gibbs Scout 3-star OL
Taybor Pepper Highly rated LS

as possible preferred walk-ons.
