According to "The Times" of Beaver, Pennsylvania, Donovan Jeter has been moved from Defensive End to Nose Guard.
“I remember in high school I used to hate double teams. I just hated the thought of going inside. But now I’m 310, 315 pounds and that’s what I’ve got to do.”
Jeter had impressed Michigan’s coaches enough during spring and fall camp that he projected to be part of the rotation as a true freshman. But Jeter’s path hit a speed bump toward the end of fall camp when he tore his meniscus in practice.
"There were days when I was just real irritated easily, especially when I couldn’t walk. I felt like I was barely an athlete.”
Having maxed out at around 315 to 320 pounds on the bench press in high school, Jeter was pushing sets of three at 355 pounds during his second month of rehab.
“After a while I started seeing changes, like I had this hoodie that I couldn’t fit into anymore and shirts were too tight in my chest,” Jeter said.
