In an article published by 247sports, several Wolverine players crack the list of the top 100 freshmen to debut the upcoming college football season:
Will Johnson, DB, Michigan
247Sports Composite: No. 14
Johnson was Michigan’s highest-rated signee and played like it during the spring. There are reps for him to earn, too. Michigan has an open cornerback role that will be a battle between Johnson, redshirt freshman Ja’Den McBurrows and converted wide receiver Mike Sainristil. Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh expects Johnson to be a factor in that competition: “He’s gonna play and be battling for a starting position,” Harbaugh said.
Mason Graham, DT, Michigan
247Sports Composite: No. 258
Graham had an excellent spring for the Wolverines. The 6-foot-4, 295-pound California native drew praise from Jim Harbaugh as someone who could play early. Said Harbaugh of Graham: “He was playing and playing at a pretty darn high level right off the bat.” Even with the addition of UCF transfer Cam Goode, the Wolverines are thin inside at defensive tackle.
