Offensive lineman Christian Pace has received a medical scholarship and will no longer play for Michigan. Pace was a member of the 2010 class and represented the entirety of the offensive linemen that committed to Michigan that year. He suffered a shoulder injury in practice during the season that will prevent him from continuing his football career, at least in Ann Arbor. This is disappointing, since it leaves the offensive line woefully thin and might make it more necessary for a freshman like Chris Bryant to see playing time in 2011. It’s also disappointing because Pace looked like a solid player coming out of high school and could have developed into a quality college offensive lineman.
Once David Molk departs after the 2011 season, the depth at center will consist of redshirt senior Rocko Khoury, redshirt freshman Jack Miller, and any freshmen who can potentially contribute there (perhaps Caleb Stacey); redshirt seniors Ricky Barnum and Elliott Mealer would also be available to play center, if necessary.
Eighteen months after National Signing Day 2010, only 17 of the 27 signees remain with the program.
