TTB Rating:

My take on Guy when he committed in April 2020 has not changed a great deal since then. That is at least in part due to the fact that his senior season was wiped out by COVID, so I’m still working off of his junior film. Guy was a relatively lightly recruited defensive lineman from Don Brown’s stomping grounds, and the Wolverines held onto him even though Brown departed for the greener pastures of Arizona.

Guy plays too high, and he lacks technique. How much better did that technique get when he couldn’t play for the past year? I do like Guy and think he could be a good jumbo track and field athlete, a guy who could probably run pretty well, do the hurdles, and throw discus. But as a football player, he’s still a very large project. Unless he has undergone a mental/technical overhaul in the past year, I fully expect him to redshirt while he continues to learn the game.

Prediction: Redshirt
