Name: Peter Bush
Weight: 232 lbs.
High school: Newport Beach (CA) Corona Del Mar
Position: Tight end
Class: Redshirt junior
Jersey number: #45
Last year: I ranked Bush #107 and said he would be a backup fullback (LINK).
TTB Rating: N/A
Bush, who made the switch from fullback to tight end mid-season, played in eight games on special teams and two games on offense last year. Most prominently, he played on the kickoff return unit as an upback.
This year Bush moves a little closer to playing time with the graduation of Jared Wangler and Zach Gentry. While the Wolverines are removing the fullback more and more from the equation, Bush is a good athlete who was a high school quarterback and outside linebacker. There are a lot of question marks about how fullback types will be used this season, but Bush should be in the mix behind Ben Mason and Ben Van Sumeren, with the former’s involvement on the defensive a potential wild card.
Prediction: Backup tight end
