Earlier this week Michigan picked up Jared Davis as a Preferred Walk On from my hometown, and new football hotbed, Frankenmuth!
Frankenmuth is of course known for anything but football, which is why it's interesting that he'll be the 2nd current UM football player from Frankenmuth, a town of 4,898 people. He joins his "role model" and current walk-on Nick Volk, a 5'11" 250 fullback and also a former Frankenmuth QB. That means Frankenmuth has a higher per-capita representation on the roster then any other city except Bloomfield Hills.
"Davis played quarterback and defensive back for the Eagles, leading Frankenmuth to the Division 5 semifinals. He completed 62 of 110 passes for 1,225 yards and 13 touchdowns, adding 966 yards and 16 touchdowns on the ground.
He is expected to play defensive back for the Wolverines. At Frankenmuth, the 5-foot-11, 190-pound senior had 70 tackles, four interceptions and nine pass deflections."
It also says he runs a 4.7 second 40, which gets 3 fakes out of 5.
