2022 Season Countdown: #69 Ikechukwu Iwunnah

Ike Iwunnah

Name: Ikechukwu Iwunnah
306 lbs.
High school:
Garland (TX) Lakeview Centennial
Defensive tackle
Redshirt freshman
Jersey number:
Last year:
I ranked Iwunnah #85 and said he would redshirt (LINK). He redshirted.
TTB Rating:

Iwunnah’s season in 2021 went about as expected. A defensive tackle with some good size coming in, he was pretty raw and needed to redshirt. So when the season came and went without him getting any snaps, I don’t think anyone was surprised.

I don’t expect much from Iwunnah in 2022, either. Even though Michigan lost a couple defensive tackles, they brought in UCF transfer Cam Goode and are expecting big things from Rayshaun Benny and George Rooks. I think Iwunnah will start getting some snaps behind Mazi Smith and Goode, but Michigan has enough defensive linemen that Iwunnah shouldn’t be forced into a critical role unless there are major injury issues.

Prediction: Backup nose tackle
