Name: Griffin Korican
Weight: 320 lbs.
High school: Seattle (WA) O’Dea
Position: Offensive guard
Class: Redshirt junior
Jersey number: #78
Last year: I ranked Korican #95 and said he would be a backup offensive guard (LINK). He played in four games.
TTB Rating: N/A
Korican made his biggest contribution last season playing on the field goal/extra point unit, while playing in one game on the offensive line, late in the blowout win over Minnesota. With most of Michigan’s offensive line returning this season, and plenty of talented younger players, Korican should once again be watching from the sideline for most of this season’s games. He may be on the FG/XP unit, but that appears to be the clearest path to playing time.
Prediction: Backup offensive guard, special teamer
