Name: Josh Beetham
Weight: 242 lbs.
High school: Yorkville (IL) Yorkville
Position: Tight end
Class: Redshirt junior
Jersey number: #40
Last year: I ranked Beetham #115 and said he would be a backup tight end (LINK). He played in one game.
TTB Rating: N/A
Beetham, a former high school quarterback, played in one game last season. It seems like walk-ons had a choice last year: either play against Hawaii or UConn. Beetham went with Hawaii, and that was that. Of course, Michigan had a glut of tight ends, and even some scholarship guys didn’t get much run, so it makes sense that Beetham didn’t play much.
The 2023 season likely won’t see much of a change for Beetham. While he has added three pounds to his frame, Michigan brought in transfer A.J. Barner, who will probably be a co-starter with Colston Loveland. Meanwhile, Matt Hibner and Max Bredeson should both play quite a bit, with some other young up-and-comers also battling for playing time. Beetham will probably just play in one or two games again this season.
Prediction: Backup tight end
