TTB Rating: 

Stone’s claim to fame, in a sense, is that he’s the son of Shomari Stone, a CNBC correspondent based in Washington, D.C. The elder Stone is a Michigan alum – though not a former football player – and a big proponent of the Wolverines. The younger Shomari was a solid player at St. John’s, though not a standout, and he came to Michigan in 2022 as a preferred walk-on.

As most preferred walk-ons experience, Stone watched his entire freshman season from the sideline. I do not expect much to change in 2023, as Michigan recruited a large and talented defensive back class in 2022. Players from that class – such as Keon Sabb and Zeke Berry – will probably be taking a step forward in 2023, leaving little room for walk-ons to play.

Prediction: Backup defensive back
