Michigan is #5 in ESPN’s football power index (LINK).

Michigan’s offensive tackle situation is much clearer right now than it was a year ago (LINK).

According to Umbig11 on The Fort, former Wolverines Alex Malzone (QB) and Tyrone Wheatley, Jr. (TE) are in the transfer portal and planning to leave Miami-OH and Stony Brook, respectively (LINK).
