Michigan Football: Spring Football — Chat Notes — Linebackers
Joe Bolden is our best linebacker at the practices we saw and it really was not close. He is vocal, he calls out the defense, he is a good player, and he started every practice we attended.
Royce Jenkins-Stone has come a long way this off-season, he actually fits the position better and is much better tackler than James Ross III and is one of our best blitzers. Ross did not stand out like a year ago, but we think it is the scheme.
We would advise Ross to really step it up this summer because we think he was beaten out by his teammate this summer (he did seem to improve as the spring went along). Fall camp should be interesting this year. RJS is pushing Ross during the spring, but not sure he is there, but it was interesting. They actually played RJS on a few downs at WDE as well besides SLB.
Ben Gedeon second team Will.
Michael Ferns played with third group.
Morgan is playing at the will and the mike.
Mike McCray played with the ones for a couple of series this spring that we saw. Big kid, best “looking” linebacker. Really was impressed in terms of “eye test” with McCray.
