Michigan football will play its spring game on Saturday and here are four things we have learned so far about the Wolverines.
When it comes to Michigan football and spring workouts, it’s hard to get much information. The Wolverines don’t have open practices and even their spring game Saturday will be closed to fans and the media.
Yet, in one big difference, Michigan is actually going to play a football game this spring. The Wolverines are dividing into teams and scrimmaging. It would be fun to watch, but certainly, there will be plenty of talk about what happened.
In some ways, things should be taken with a grain of salt because the defense is installing a new system and the offense is breaking in some young quarterbacks.
Still, it would be interesting to see how things go and it could give us an idea of where things stand as far as the two-deep heading into the fall.
While there haven’t been many reports on spring practices, here’s a look at four things we have learned so far about the Wolverines.
Running back talent is through the roof
One of the biggest topics of conversation this spring has been five-star running back Donovan Edwards. Multiple players have praised his ability when speaking to the media and Blake Corum was one who talked about how prepared Edwards was already.
Others such as Josh Ross have talked about how Edwards “can fly” which is exactly what you want to hear about your five-star recruit.
According to Sam Webb of the Michigan Insider ($), Corum has also been standing out in practice and when you consider the trio of Edwards, Corum and Hassan Haskins, saying the Wolverines are loaded with running back talent is more than fair.
