Michigan Football: Coach’s Corner — Kenny Wilkins — Defensive Line — Wolverine’s Spring Football — GBMWolverine Evaluations
GBMWolverine Football Spring Evaluations: Position-by-Position — Player Profile.
GBMWolverine readers: Here is a brief overview of Kenny Wilkins and GBMWolverine’s analysis concerning his progress this spring in our opinion.
Note: We will not evaluate every player on the team and with this position group (Defensive Line) we will not evaluate #67 Nathan Brink. If you would like to chat about this player bring them up on the message board or send us an e-mail request.
Reminder: Also noted that we didn’t attend every practice and realize things happen during those fifteen practices, but our evaluations are based on what we seen first hand and in our opinion and not what we hear like just about every other site out there that relies on second, third hand information to make their evaluations of the players during the spring.
Losing from 2011 (Team #132) on scholarship: #39 Will Heininger, #53 Ryan Van Bergen, #68 Mike Martin, and #95 Chris Rock who has left the program.
Coming in for 2012 (Team #133) on scholarship: Willie Henry, Ondre Pipkins, Chris Wormley, Tom Strobel, Matt Godin, and Mario Ojemudia.
Commit for 2013 (Team #134) on scholarship: Henry Poggi, Maurice Hurst Jr., and Taco Charlton.

This is our last spring evaluation profile as we start gearing up towards the Michigan football season.
Kenny Wilkins is a red-shirt sophomore from Washington Pennsylvania, an area known for decades for tough, no-nonsense football players. As a third year player in the program, it is time to step up and contribute.
The GBMWolverine Staff believes his move to a 3-tech defensive tackle from defensive end could be positive.
Kenny showed signs of being a solid contributor at defensive tackle during the spring and could help with depth issues on the inside line this season. His contributions will be tough to gauge until game action, and the first game might not be the best time to get experience or make a judgment.
Even though Kenny has gained quite a bit of weight since arriving on campus, he still needs to add some weight and get stronger.
In short, we believe his chances of being a factor at the 3-tech tackle are far greater than at defensive end.
