2020 Season Countdown: #92 Adam Fakih
Name: Adam Fakih
Weight: 228 lbs.
High school: Detroit (MI) Country Day
Class: Redshirt junior
Jersey number: #41
Last year: I ranked Fakih #82 and said he would be a backup linebacker and special teamer (LINK). He played in eleven games and made 3 tackles.
TTB Rating: N/A
Fakih is one of several talented walk-on linebackers on Michigan’s roster, and there have been years – not good years, but years nonetheless – where some of these guys would have been pushing for playing time. Instead, Fakih was limited to special teams, where he made 3 tackles on the kickoff team.
I expect more of the same for Fakih in 2020. Michigan has plenty of talented scholarship linebackers to handle the regular defensive duties, but Fakih’s role on special teams should remain consistent.
Prediction: Backup linebacker, special teamer
