Tom Lugenbill:


"If ever there was an identity-defining running back for an offensive philosophy, it's Green"



"Michigan wants nothing more than to get back to power football via a controlled passing game based off play-action, and Green is the right back to execute it. Not only do we expect him to get significant playing time as a true freshman, but we expect him to be a bell-cow back, in similar fashion to Montee Ball at Wisconsin (only Green is bigger and more physical and might be faster)."

Meet Derrick Green. He is:

-Like De'Anthony Thomas, but faster.

-Like Trent Richardson, but stronger.

-Like Barry Sanders, but shiftier.

-Like Jesus, but holier.
