2020 Season Countdown: #107 Christian Bartholomew

Name: Christian Bartholomew
180 lbs.
High school:
Kalamazoo (MI) Hackett
Quarterback/wide receiver
Jersey number:
Last year:
Bartholomew was a senior in high school.

Bartholomew committed to Michigan as a preferred walk-on. He runs a 4.5 forty and on his Hudl page, he claims a 245 lb. bench and a 385 lb. squat. Though he played quarterback as a senior, he caught 66 passes for 1,131 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior, and he made 78 catches for 1,029 yards and 9 touchdowns as a sophomore.

I’m not so sure about that 4.5 forty time, but Bartholomew looks like that kind of good all-around athlete who could eventually earn some playing time either at receiver or on special teams.

Prediction: Redshirt

Hit the jump for his senior highlights.
