Michigan Football: Tidbits From MaizeMan — Just for Fun — Incoming Freshman Class

Going to have one in every group, but you can come to the message board to see the entire post and list.

My very early predictions of incoming frosh class:

1) Those who will NOT red-shirt and get significant snaps

DeVeon Smith and (Derrick Green):
Put Derrick Green in there because I think Michigan is now a clear favorite. But either way I think both freshman running back’s play next year and only one of the remaining running backs’s already on campus will be in the rotation.

2) Those who will NOT red-shirt, but will play limited role or special teams player

Ben Gedeon:
I know we have bodies at linebacker, but having bodies does not always equate to talent. Gedeon has a chance to quickly move into the two-deep and be a RJS type of special teams player.

3) Players who I think WILL red-shirt, but would be next on my list.

Note: I think next year (unlike the past two) there may be a preference to red-shirt more players. This may change on depending on Coach Hoke’s approach to special teams.

Michael McCray:
Again, would of moved him up, but he is injured and I think he needs a year of development. In addition, with the return of Cam Gordon we are pretty deep at his position. Now, if Cam comes to spring and decides to not compete (which is possible) then this prediction may change.


Csont’e York and Jaron Dukes:
Despite lack of wide receiver’s because of multiple tight end sets and Gallon coming back I think we have enough depth.

Usually coaches like to play at least one freshman at wide receiver. I just think it will either be Lewis moving to offense or Jones.
