TTB Rating:

I didn’t know who Cam Goode was up until the 2021-2022 off-season, and most Michigan fans are probably in the same boat. After a few years in college, Goode finally made his first starts in 2021 and did pretty well with them, albeit playing in a weaker conference than the Big Ten. He was a part-time starter and managed to make several disruptive plays, including tying for 12th in the country in forced fumbles with four. But when it came to the season’s end, he was ready for a bigger stage.

That led him to Michigan as a graduate transfer. The Wolverines needed some help on the defensive line with Donovan Jeter and Chris Hinton off to do other things, along with one-year experiment Jordan Whittley, who did not do much in a Michigan uniform. Goode is known for his quickness, but the improved competition will probably make the transition a little bit difficult. Originally when I placed him in the top third of the roster, I figured he would be a key backup to Mazi Smith at nose tackle, but freshman Kenneth Grant is getting all kinds of hype as an athletic freak and potential contributor. So maybe Goode will see a diminished role, or perhaps we’re all being distracted by the presence of the enormous Grant. Either way, Goode should be a rotational player on the defensive interior.

Prediction: Backup defensive tackle
