Hello, I’m Tim, and I plan on putting together a weekly Twitter roundup with all information about Michigan football on social media. Follow me on Twitter at @TTB_Michigan.
Michigan hasn’t released rosters for the spring game on Saturday; however, the teams are slowly being released by the players on Twitter and Instagram after the draft on Saturday. Below is what I have come up with. Feel free to help me update if there’s more information out there.
The #MichiganFootball Spring Game Draft is about to kickoff!

Michigan recruiting (@UMJumpmanFB) released the top five picks. Sophomore DE Rashan Gary went first overall to the Maize Team. Starting QB Wilton Speight and DE Chase Winovich went second and third to the Blue Team. Rounding out the top five and going to the Maize Team were Viper/DB Khaleke Hudson and LB Devin Bush, Jr., two surprises so early.
QB – Brandon Peters
TE – Nick Eubanks
DL – Rashan Gary
DB/Viper – Khaleke Hudson
LS – Camaron Cheeseman
Holder – Garrett Moores
FB – Khalid Hill
WR – Tarik Black, Eddie McDoom
DL – Chase Winovich
LS – Andrew Robinson
Holder – Garrett Moores
The Maize Team has a strong group at LB with returning starter McCray along with projected starter Bush. With Hudson and Kinnel out there, it will be interesting to see how those guys all play together.
TBD? Below is the list of guys I couldn’t find anything on. There’s still a lot to figure out, but by looking at some of what has come out, it can be assumed some of the guys will be on the opposite team. For example, I’m sure one or both of John O’Korn and Brandon Peters are on the Maize team. Some guys will probably be out due to injuries as well.
QB – Alex Malzone
RB – Ty Isaac, Karan Higdon, Kareem Walker
FB – Henry Poggi
WR – Drake Harris, Donovan Peoples-Jones, Jack Wangler
TE – Ian Bunting, T.J. Wheatley, Zach Gentry
OL – Juwann Bushell-Beatty, Nolan Ulizio, Ben Bredeson, Michael Onwenu, Mason Cole, Patrick Kugler, Jon Runyan Jr.
DT – Maurice Hurst, Lawrence Marshall, Bryan Mone, Michael Dwumfour
DE – Reuben Jones, Carlo Kemp, Ron Johnson
LB – Noah Furbush, Josh Uche, Jared Wangler, Elysee Mbem-Bosse, Devin Gil
DB – Brandon Watson, Lavert Hill, Jaylen Kelly-Powell
Not Dudes, but Guys?
Apparently Coach Don Brown has different categories for his players. So you can be a guy, but not a dude? But is a dude a guy? Maybe someone can ask those questions at Brown’s next press conference.
