2016 Season Countdown: #84 Jordan Glasgow

2016 Season Countdown: #84 Jordan Glasgow

June 10, 2016

Graham, Jordan, and Ryan Glasgow

Name: Jordan Glasgow
Height: 6’1″
Weight: 195 lbs.
High school: Aurora (IL) Marmion Academy
Position: Safety
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #29
Last year: I did not rank Glasgow. He redshirted.

Jordan became the third Glasgow brother to walk on at Michigan, joining offensive lineman Graham (drafted by the Lions in April) and defensive tackle Ryan. But safety is a tougher position to break in as a walk-on, because skill guys need some God-given talents like speed to succeed. Linemen can eat and get stronger, but it’s tough to get a great deal faster.

Jordan redshirted last season, and because of the shallow depth chart at safety, he played a lot this spring. However, Michigan returns two safeties with starting experience (Delano Hill, Dymonte Thomas), a solid recruit (Tyree Kinnel), and a part-time starter at corner who could move back to safety if necessary (Jeremy Clark). Glasgow’s too slow and stiff to play much safety this year, but he could be a special teams guy or a mop-up guy.

Prediction: Backup safety, special teamer
