TTB Rating:

What do you do when you’re doing a countdown and you recognize too late that you missed a person?

Well, in this case you put them at #64 in the countdown.

This is not a slight against Boutorwick, who is surely a fine young man and an excellent long snapper, but he’s the third-string snapper behind Greg Tarr and Will Wagner. Wagner has been the team’s starter for the past two seasons but was lost to injury, so Tarr stepped in for the final two-thirds of the 2022 season. I assume Wagner will be back to full strength after a torn ACL suffered on October 1, but you never know with ACLs.

Boutorwick was going to be in the 80s as the backup to the backup long snapper, but considering Wagner’s pre-existing injury, maybe #64 isn’t altogether too high, after all. Regardless, Michigan is unlikely to rely on its third-best long snapper too much in 2023.

Prediction: Backup long snapper
