2018 Season Countdown: #107 Peter Bush

Name: Peter Bush
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 225 lbs.
High school: Newport Beach (CA) Corona Del Mar
Position: Fullback
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

2018 Season Countdown: #108 Matt Brown

Name: Matt Brown
Height: 6’0″
Weight: 220 lbs.
High school: Solon (OH) Solon
Position: Fullback
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #46
Last year: I did not rank Brown. He redshirted.

Brown was one of the most impressive preferred walk-ons in Michigan’s 2017 class. He posted 155 tackles, 22 tackles for loss, 2 interceptions, and 3 fumble recoveries as a senior in 2016. Brown made the switch to fullback at Michigan, and I might even be underrating this kid at #108. I think he has a good physical and mental makeup for the fullback position, but since he was mostly a defensive player in high school, he may take some time to get acquainted with all the offensive stuff. I expect Ben Mason and Ben VanSumeren to get the bulk of the snaps at fullback, but Brown looks like a guy who would have no problem running full speed into a linebacker or two.

Prediction: Backup fullback
