Name: Mahdi Hazime
Weight: 319 lbs.
High school: Dearborn (MI) Fordson
Position: Offensive guard
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: #64
Last year: I ranked Hazime #105 and said he would be a backup offensive guard (LINK). He did not play.
TTB Rating: N/A
Hazime joined Michigan in the class of 2019 as a preferred walk-on offensive lineman. However, his height at 6’2″ likely limits him to the center position, and 319 lbs. is pretty heavy for someone who’s only 6’2″. Meanwhile, Michigan has a pretty good group of highly touted offensive linemen – and 6’7″ behemoth tackles – so Hazime likely does not measure up with the rest of the linemen in the program, both literally and figuratively. He is not in the two-deep on the offensive line, so his best chance to help out is on the scout team.
Prediction: Backup offensive lineman
