Name: Matt Baldeck
Height: 6’0″
Weight: 210 lbs.
High school: Lewiston (ID) Lewiston
Position: Long snapper
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #44
Last year: I did not rank Baldeck. He redshirted.

I know this isn’t a sexy pick for the #106 player on the countdown, and you all were hoping for something sexy. Nope. I’m picking a backup long snapper. Michigan’s starting long snapper, Camaron Cheeseman, returns from last season, and Baldeck is in the running to be the #2 guy, along with Andrew Robinson. It’s not uncommon for a team to use two snappers on special teams throughout the season, whether due to ineffectiveness, injury, or different skill sets, so I’m putting Baldeck here on the chance that something happens to Robinson.

Prediction: Backup long snapper
