I did not rank George. He played in one game.
TTB Rating:

George, a walk-on defensive lineman, achieved what might have been his dream of playing in a Michigan football game last season. Unfortunately, it was across from a mean ol’ nasty Wisconsin offensive line that plowed Michigan’s defense out onto Main Street.

This spring George earned a mention from Jim Harbaugh as someone who had an excellent spring. I’m pegging Harbaugh’s comments as pure hype, considering George’s only playing time came in a blowout loss and that George is an undersized 6’0″, 287 lb. lineman on a team that supposedly wants to get bigger up front. Perhaps his height will let him maintain leverage against some opponents, but I’m guessing he will be primarily a scout team guy.

Prediction: Backup defensive tackle
