Name: Peyton Smith
Weight: 190 lbs.
High school: Traverse City (MI) Central
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #7
Last year: I ranked Smith #104 and said he would redshirt (LINK). He redshirted.
TTB Rating: N/A
Smith is another pretty solid walk-on quarterback. Michigan has a few guys with potential, including Max Witter (profiled yesterday). He was pretty skinny coming out of high school, and he hasn’t filled out to an ideal size yet. He also doesn’t have the number of snaps you really want to see in a quarterback, as he played wide receiver until midway through his junior year. But given a few years in college, I think Smith could be a pretty decent player. This year isn’t that time, though, and he has a few more talented players ahead of him.
Prediction: Backup quarterback
