Chandler (AZ) Hamilton QB Tyler Shough

Tyler Shough – QB – Chandler (AZ) Hamilton: Shough is a 6’4″, 187 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, and Michigan, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #20 pro-style quarterback, and #544 overall. As a junior in 2016, he completed 142/228 passes for 2,079 yards, 27 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. Shough has said that he’s not afraid of competition or of Michigan taking two quarterbacks in the 2017 class, so he supposedly won’t be scared off by the recent commitment of Olympia (FL) Olympia’s Joe Milton to the Wolverines. Shough plans to be on campus on Saturday, May 13.

The 2001 draft wasn’t as deep for the Wolverines, as only five players were picked, but it was an insanely talented and relatively unique group.  All five players were taken in the first 43 picks of the draft, and they were all from the offensive side of the ball.
