High school: 
New Albany (OH) Gahanna-Lincoln
Position:

TTB Rating:
 N/A

Cheeseman enters his fourth season of being the starting long-snapper. He must have been pretty good, because he forced former starter Scott Sypniewski to transfer to Vanderbilt and then took over the gig for the rest of his career. Now he’s on the watch list to be the top long snapper in the country. I don’t know exactly who tracks long snappers in order to hand out that award, but . . . hey, it’s something.

Cheeseman is one of three long snappers on the roster, including redshirt freshman William Wagner and true freshman Greg Tarr. Tarr was #6 in the country, according to Rubio, and he was a Polynesian Bowl participant. This is Cheeseman’s job, but we should see Wagner or Tarr in 2021.

Prediction: Starting long snapper

How much can you say about long snappers when they don’t screw up? Michigan had a scholarship long snapper in Scott Sypniewski, and they let him go to Vanderbilt because of the presence of Cheeseman, who has started for the past two seasons. The snaps have been pretty good for the past two seasons, particularly on punts. Cheeseman is in his fourth year and could potentially return for a fourth consecutive year of starting in 2020.

Name: Camaron Cheeseman
Height: 6’4″
Weight: 225 lbs.
High school: New Albany (OH) Gahanna Lincoln
Position: Long snapper
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: #38
Last year: I ranked Cheeseman #85 and said he would be the backup long snapper (LINK). He started at long snapper.
TTB Rating: N/A

Cheeseman got to Michigan in 2016 and redshirted, even when starting long snapper Scott Sypniewski got hurt. Andrew Robinson replaced Sypniewski, so I assumed Cheeseman would continue to be a backup, only to Robinson.

That turned out not to be the case, as Cheeseman started all year long. So I assume Cheeseman will once again be the starter in 2018, but you never know with these types of things. Off-season insider reports weren’t brimming with news about the long snapper competition. Either way, Robinson has experience and should be okay if Cheeseman isn’t. Usually I rank the starting long snapper a little higher, but I think Michigan has two pretty solid guys.

Prediction: Starting long snapper

2017 Season Countdown: #85 Camaron Cheeseman

Name: Camaron Cheeseman
Height: 6’4″
Weight: 225 lbs.
High school: New Albany (OH) Gahanna Lincoln
Position: Long snapper
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #38
Last year: I did not rank Cheeseman. He redshirted.

Believe it or not, I don’t have a background story or deep analysis of Michigan’s backup long snapper. What we do know is that scholarship long snapper Scott Sypniewski is transferring to Vanderbilt, leaving the job to walk-on Andrew Robinson and potentially Cheeseman. Sypniewski did have some troubles, and Robinson was his replacement. That makes Cheeseman the backup. He was a participant in the 2016 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl, which means he was pretty well regarded coming out of high school. That’s all we really have to go on for now.

Prediction: Backup long snapper
