Jokisch is joining the football team for the first time. If his name sounds familiar, it’s because he’s the son of former Michigan wide receiver Paul Jokisch, who played in the mid-1980s before being a fifth round draft pick of the San Francisco 49ers. He’s also the nephew of former Wolverine Dan Jokisch and the cousin of former walk-on lineman Dan Jokisch, Jr. So there are a lot of Michigan connections.
For whatever reason, Jokisch III did not play football for his first two years on campus and joined the team this spring. I assume he will have to knock off some rust following the hiatus. You can see below that he played some wingback in high school – where he was a little bit of an awkward fit – and listed at 6’3″ and 230 lbs., he’s undersized to play an edge position at Michigan right now. Perhaps a year or two in the weight room might change that, but he’s very likely just a scout team guy right now.
Prediction: Backup defensive end/outside linebacker
