Who is redshirting this year?

Anyone know if Booboo is supposed to redshirt this year?  I was checking out the roster earlier and he wasn't even listed.

 Actually, come to think of it, I didn't see Stonum on the roster either, which seems weirder since he enrolled early (and I thought I saw Roundtree on the roster, which is just strange since he needs to put on about 30 pounds).

I realize it's early and summer practice hasn't started yet (so obviously the roster isn't set in stone yet), but I need answers!

I heard on rivals that Roundtree gained like 25 lbs or something (from 165 to 190). I also heard Barwis sends these recruits a workout video after they sign their LOI. Anyone else hear that?

If that's true (the Barwis workout tape), that's awesome.

 Somehow, I imagine that being on par in entertainment value with the Bas Rutten workout video and the Rex Kwon Do scene from Napoleon Dynamite (not to diminish the likely effectiveness of the workout portrayed on tape).

this was the little excerpt to that story on rivals. i don't have a subscription so this is all i have. it was posted on rivals in mid june

"High school teammates, Wolverines Roy Roundtree and Brandon Moore have been working out together in preparation for their arrival in Ann Arbor. Both have seen noticeable gains in their strength, each adding more than 15 pounds since Signing Day …"

No dpeth chart has been released since the end of Spring Practice, so Freshmen are not on the current depth chart. I think roundtree, and all the o-linemen aside from O'Neil are likely. Possibly Demens/Hill at LB. Cox, and Omameh as well.

Yeah, that stuff hasn't been determined yet. My freshman year, I had a buddy from high school who played football at Michigan (Kevin Murphy, this was like 6 years ago). He was talking to me during welcome week and saying that he might have to redshirt, but he didn't know yet. This was probably a week before the first game.
