When I wrote the commitment post a few months ago, I compared Bellomy to Al Borges’ old protege Cade McNown. Both players are/were mobile with mediocre arm strength and accuracy. Bellomy doesn’t have physical talents that are off the charts, but he does seem like a quality kid and a good leader. If nothing else, those are good qualities for a backup quarterback to have while he plays second (or third) fiddle to guys who have more natural skills like Denard Robinson and Devin Gardner.
Bellomy ought to be able to redshirt in 2011, at least if everything goes according to plan. With third-year Robinson and second-year Gardner in the mix, the only reason a freshman might see the field is if there’s an injury (or two). And Michigan fans definitely want Robinson and Gardner to stay healthy. Bellomy ought to be capable in a few years, but for now he doesn’t belong on the field.
