Last year: I ranked Ulizio #47 and said he would be a backup offensive tackle. He played in four games.
TTB Rating: 65
Michigan stole Ulizio from UConn in the class of 2015, and things have been . . . on track since then? He redshirted in 2015, played in garbage time during four games in 2016, and now seems primed for a slightly increased role in 2017. The Wolverines lost three starters after the 2016 season, naturally bumping up the backups. Ulizio does not seem likely to claim one of those vacated starting positions, but he has reportedly had some success with reshaping his body and increasing his strength and flexibility. If nothing else, he should be a more viable option as a backup. I expect him to play in more than four games, but with the youth on the offensive line, he may be a career backup.
Prediction: Backup offensive tackle
