Name: Jack Wangler
Height: 6’1″
Weight: 200 lbs.
High school: Warren (MI) De La Salle
Position: Wide receiver
Class: Redshirt junior
Jersey number: #16
Last year: I did not rank Wangler. He played in one game.

Wangler – the son of former Michigan QB John Wangler and the brother of LB Jared Wangler – enters his fourth season on campus after committing to Brady Hoke as a preferred walk-on, and this is the first time I’m profiling him in the countdown. He has played in three games in his career, including just one as a redshirt sophomore in 2015. He did see quite a bit of action in the spring with Michigan’s receiver corps decimated by injury (Maurice Ways, Jehu Chesson), along with a host of freshmen at the position who have yet to enroll. Wangler isn’t a quick-twitch guy and struggles to get separation, but he does seem to be the most trusted walk-on wideout. I doubt he will play much once Ways, Chesson, and the freshmen are in action.

Prediction: Backup wide receiver

    I wish Derrick Henry did go to UM, but that’s Derrick Green in the picture.
