GBMWolverine: Coach’s Corner — Michigan Football — Terrence Talbott — Spring Evaluations

GBMWolverine Football Spring Evaluations: Position-by-Position — Player Profile.

GBMWolverine readers: Here is a brief overview of Terrence Talbott and GBMWolverine’s analysis concerning his progress this spring with the new system.

Note: We will not evaluate every player on the team and with this position group (Corner-backs) we will not evaluate #12 J.T. Floyd (was held out of spring practice), #24 Cullen Christian (who left the team after spring practices this year), #29 Troy Woolfolk (was held out of spring practice) , and #38 Al Backey. If you would like to chat about these players bring them up on the message board, in chat on Monday nights, or send us an e-mail request.

Coming in: #35 Greg Brown (already on campus), Blake Countess, Delonte Hollowell, Raymon Taylor, and Tamani Carter.

Losing: #17 Tony Anderson, and #29 Troy Woolfolk.

Terrence showed excellent skills during the sessions he did practice this spring. He even surpassed a player on the depth chart in only a couple of practices when he returned to live action.


We believe Terrence is Michigan’s most explosive defensive back and is physical for his size. He is a pretty decent overall athlete, one with enough skills and attributes to succeed at the Division 1 level.

Needs Work:

Frankly, Terrence needs to make a decision concerning whether he wants to play football and accept all the extra time and sacrifice needed to be a top student athlete at a premium university, or just be a student.

We were indeed the first group to report a “Terrence Talbott” sighting on the practice field this spring. Part-time will not suffice at this level and injuries or other impediments must be overcome.

Contributing This Year?

Possible, we believe Terrence will see some playing time, but again, as with the other defensive backs, how much playing time may depend on how J.T. Floyd and Troy Woolfolk come back from injury and their eventual playing destinations. As with many defensive backs and linebackers, special teams are a place where we could see Terrence contributing this year.

It is a real possibility that if things do not fall his way Terrence’s playing time could be limited this year.

Too bad the depth chart was so bad last year and injuries and poor performance abounded. Terrence clearly could have benefited from taking a red-shirt year.

Final Thoughts:

Needs to decide if he wants to play football and put the time and effort in at this level to be part of the Michigan football program.

Could help this team with the quality of depth alone, but some players get frustrated early on if they don’t see the field like they thought they would.
