Name: Seth Broekhuizen
Weight: 195 lbs.
High school: Holland Christian High School in Holland, MI
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: #46
Last year: I did not rank Broekhuizen. He was 42-for-43 on extra point attempts and 3-for-9 on field goal attempts.
I will admit to knowing very little about the mechanics of kicking a football, but I do know that a 33% conversion rate on field goals is not very good. Not that it was all Broekhuizen’s fault. He was a walk-on for a reason, and scholarship kicker Brendan Gibbons didn’t get the job done either, going 1-for-4 on the year.
What I do know is that Michigan needs to kick the ball better if they want to be a good team, which is why the coaching staff recruited San Diego’s Matt Wile. Wile might be the solution at kicker, but we all thought that about Gibbons in 2009 . . . and 2010. I don’t really care where the field goals come from, as long as they go through the uprights with a fair amount of consistency.
Prediction: Who knows?
