2024 Season Countdown: #98 Micah Davis

Name: Micah Davis
Height:
6’1″
Weight:
199 lbs.
High school:
Dexter (MI) Dexter
Position:
Safety
Class:
Redshirt freshman
Jersey number:
#37
Last year:
I did not rank Davis. He redshirted.
TTB Rating:
N/A

Davis was a high school teammate of running back Cole Cabana and had quite a standout high school career. Some Michigan fans may not have heard of him, but over his final two seasons at Dexter, he made 200 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 12 interceptions, 16 pass breakups, and 5 forced fumbles. He was named all-state as a senior and was ranked as a 2-star prospect by 247 Sports. Upon joining the program in 2023, he was named Scout Team Defensive Player of the Week three times and earned the same honor for special teams once. For a walk-on freshman, that’s a pretty solid start.

When I originally did this ranking, Michigan had lost Keon Sabb to the transfer portal and had not yet landed Wesley Walker and Jaden Mangham to replace Sabb and the injured Rod Moore, so I had bumped up Davis. Considering the transfer portal replacements, maybe Davis shouldn’t be in the top-100 just yet, but oh well. I think he does have a chance to be a solid special teams player and perhaps play a role in the defensive rotation sometime down the road.

Prediction: Backup safety, special teamer

2024 Season Countdown: #99 Max Reyes

Max Reyes (#31, image via MLive)

Name: Max Reyes
Height:
5’11”
Weight:
206 lbs.
High school:
Southlake (TX) Carroll
Position:
Safety
Class:
Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number:
#31
Last year:
Reyes was not on the football team.
TTB Rating:
N/A

There’s not a lot of information out there about Max Reyes, who was a pleasant surprise in the spring game, leading the team with 6 tackles. Due to some injuries and departures, Reyes actually started for one of the teams at safety. But as far as I can tell, Reyes has not played college football until the spring of 2024 despite being an academic junior. He wasn’t on the roster in 2022 or 2023, and I can’t find evidence of his having transferred from another program. It does appear that he was a decent baseball player and may have been pursuing baseball opportunities, and he has put on about 30-35 pounds in the past couple years, so perhaps he’s just kind of a late bloomer physically who has recently changed his sports focus.

I did go back and watch his high school Hudl highlights, where he played cornerback in a primarily cover 2 system. He was also listed as a quarterback, but his time coincided with current Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers (who quarterbacked the team when Reyes was a junior); in fact, Southlake Carroll has also produced the likes of former Alabama/NFL quarterback Greg McElroy and former Missouri/NFL quarterback Chase Daniel. But the fact that he was a quarterback – even as a backup – might hint at some quality football knowledge and processing ability.

Michigan did get reinforcements through the transfer portal in the form of Jaden Mangham and Wesley Walker, so we can be pretty sure that Reyes won’t be a primary factor in the safety rotation this fall. But if he started for one team and led all players in tackles, that might be an indication that he could be in line for some backup snaps or special teams time.

Prediction: Backup safety, special teamer

2024 Season Countdown: #100 Nico Andrighetto

Nico Andrighetto (image via Twitter)

Name: Nico Andrighetto
Height: 
5’9″
Weight: 
190 lbs.
High school: 
Mountain View (CA) St. Francis
Position: 
Safety
Class: 
Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: 
#31
Last year: 
I ranked Andrighetto #136 and said he would be a backup defensive back (LINK). He played in one game on special teams.
TTB Rating:
 N/A

Andrighetto entered his third season on campus having played in two career contests, one in each previous season. He has been named Scout Team Special Teams Player of the Week four times over his two seasons, including three weeks in 2023. That would seem to bode well for him getting a chance to play a little bit on special teams as his career progresses. At 5’9″ and 190 pounds, he’s unlikely to ever be a serious option on defense, but special teams could be a different story.

With the likes of Caden Kolesar and other walk-ons moving past their football careers, there may be room for Andrighetto to play a little more in 2024. Punt and kickoff coverage units can be good spots to get your scholarship guys a break and let some fresh bodies sprint downfield at full speed.

Prediction: Backup safety and special teamer
