Name: Peter Bush
Weight: 225 lbs.
High school: Newport Beach (CA) Corona Del Mar
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: #48
Last year: I did not rank Bush. He did not see any game action.
Bush is a one-time high school quarterback who ended up catching 62 passes for 915 yards and 15 touchdowns as a senior in the 2015 season. He came to Michigan in 2016 and has been packing on weight since then. As Michigan searches for contributors at the fullback/H-back positions, I see Bush as a potential candidate for playing time. Bush is more of an H-back type, while Matt Brown (LINK) looks like more of a traditional fullback. The Wolverines have several options and fullback is a spot that can be capably manned by walk-ons, so there’s a cluster of these types of players down here toward the bottom of the countdown list.
Prediction: Backup fullback
