Final TTB Ratings for 2018

Thanks to Bryan and Keith for the recent, generous donations through Paypal!


It’s been a long time coming because I’ve been so busy, but here are the final TTB Ratings for the class of 2018.

A note on the ratings: These are Michigan-specific ratings, so a guy who would be an instant starter at Eastern Michigan might not be quite so much of an individual standout playing against Michigan’s opponents . . . and he might even have a hard time getting on the field over some other Wolverines. It’s tricky trying to determine how the depth chart will shake out over the next three to five years, but I’m here for the heavy lifting. For more of an explanation, check out this page here (LINK).

2018 Season Countdown: #62 Myles Sims

Myles Sims

Name: Myles Sims
Height: 6’3″
Weight: 173 lbs.
High school: Atlanta (GA) Westlake
Position: Cornerback
Class: Freshman
Jersey number: #6
Last year: Sims was a senior in high school (LINK). He made 17 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 6 pass breakups.
TTB Rating: 81

Sims was an Under Armour All-American after his senior year, where the coaching staff moved him to free safety. He looked tentative and very willowy at free safety, which was a little bit concerning. That’s because Michigan will ask him to be physical, whether he’s playing cornerback or safety. There’s nowhere to hide in Michigan’s defense if you’re not willing to be aggressive.

Even so, Sims is the highest rated defensive back in Michigan’s 2018 class (4-star, #17 CB, #170 overall) and enrolled early back in January. He got an extra semester of work in Michigan’s system, and he got some extra time to work on adding to his stringy frame in a college S&C (and nutrition) program. Michigan hasn’t been shy about playing freshman cornerbacks, and they need to consider that anywhere from 1-3 cornerbacks will be gone next year (Brandon Watson for sure, plus David Long and Lavert Hill as possibilities). Ambry Thomas and Benjamin St-Juste both played as freshmen last year, and Hill/Long played as freshmen in 2016. If Sims plays like the top corner in Michigan’s 2018 class, then I think they’ll groom him for action next year.

Prediction: Backup cornerback
