Name: Joshua Luther
Weight: 180 lbs.
High school: Clarkston (MI) Clarkston
Class: Redshirt senior
Jersey number: #44
Last year: I ranked Luther #118 and said he would be a backup defensive back (LINK). He played in one game.
TTB Rating: N/A
It’s always interesting to me to see how players progress in the countdown from year to year, and through no fault of his own, Luther is on a downward slide. He appeared in 2021 at #117, dropped to #118, and now appears at #123. There’s no real explanation other than the fact that Michigan brought in several scholarship-worthy transfer players, and the team now has a deeper talent well than they used to have.
At 5’9″ and 180 lbs., it’s hard to get on the field in the Big Ten unless you’re a dynamic athlete, and I think we can safely say that Luther is not particularly dynamic. But maybe he can make an occasional appearance on special teams.
Prediction: Backup defensive back
