Name: Noah Howes
Weight: 240 lbs.
High school: Rochester (MI) Rochester
Position: Tight end
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: #45
Last year: I ranked Howes #122 and said he would be a backup tight end (LINK). He played in one game.
TTB Rating: N/A
Howes joins the growing list of walk-ons who got an inch shorter from 2022 to 2023, going from 6’5″ to 6’4″ on this year’s roster, but adding 6 pounds in the process. Surely this loss of height came from the impact Howes made on Hawaii defenders in his lone appearance last season, during the 56-10 Michigan victory.
Fun fact: Howes was rated as a 2-star offensive guard by 247 Sports in the 2021 recruiting class. Michigan may decide to use him as a blocking tight end sometime in the future, since they lost several tight ends to the NFL (Luke Schoonmaker), transfer (Erick All, Louis Hansen), and/or graduation (Joel Honigford, Carter Selzer).
Prediction: Backup tight end
