Name: Jack Wangler
Weight: 200 lbs.
High school: Warren (MI) De La Salle
Position: Wide receiver
Class: Fifth year senior
Jersey number: #16
Last year: I ranked Wangler #89 and said he would be a backup receiver. He played in one game.
Wangler is the son of former Michigan quarterback John Wangler, and he was a high school teammate of Shane Morris’s. Any hopes of a Morris-to-Wangler combination in college have long since disappeared, and Wangler enters his final year of eligibility with only a slim chance to see the field. Last year he saw some snaps in the season-opening blowout of Hawaii, and he didn’t get on the field after that. I expect more of the same this year, and the chances for a blowout are even slimmer. Add to that a few more receivers in the mix, and things are looking bleak. I imagine he’ll play in a game or two to reward him for five years of hard work.
Prediction: Backup wide receiver
