TTB Rating:

Hammond is a good-sized defensive tackle prospect at somewhere around 6’5″ and 265 pounds. He finished the recruiting cycle ranked as a 247 Composite 4-star, the #48 defensive lineman, and #431 overall. To me that ranking seems a little high because he doesn’t show a ton of athleticism and didn’t have much production. Unless you’re playing nose tackle, an FBS recruit on the defensive line should be getting more than 2 tackles for loss and half a sack in his senior season.

Michigan has three defensive tackles returning this fall with significant playing time and production, but they’re going to have to find depth from elsewhere. It’s unclear who the #4 through #6 interior guys will be, but Michigan does have some older guys – Roderick Pierce, Brooks Bahr, Ike Iwunnah, etc. – who could step in and see the field. Hammond is still a little light to play inside, and he needs to work on some technique things and playing lower before he gets on the field. He’s most likely a scout team guy for 2024.

Prediction: Redshirt
