Name: Myles Pollard
191 lbs.
High school: 
Brentwood (TN) Ravenwood
Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: 
Last year: 
I ranked Pollard #88 and said he would redshirt (LINK). He played in two games and made 1 tackle.
TTB Rating:

Pollard was not needed in 2022, so he was always a longshot to get much run. Not only did Michigan have some veteran starters in Gemon Green and D.J. Turner II, but they also had 5-star freshman Will Johnson. So when Pollard joined the recruiting class, he was always looked at as more of a year two contributor, if that.

Now going into year two, I see Pollard as a possible year three contributor . . . if that. Will Johnson returns on one side, and the buzz about the other starting corner revolves mostly around three people: UMass transfer Josh Wallace, converted receiver Amorion Walker, and Ja’den McBurrows. Pollard does not have great speed, so he will need to be physical and technical if he wants to succeed. He may be on that path, but it will take some time before he gets a chance to show it.

Prediction: Backup cornerback and special teamer
