Last year: McBride was not on the roster.
TTB Rating: N/A
McBride is an unknown at this level. He was not on Michigan’s fall roster in 2021, but he joined the team as a student body walk-on this winter. He was a very productive runner at Seaholm in high school, largely playing the fullback position on a triple option team. With a couple high-profile backs at the top of the depth chart and some more experienced walk-ons like Leon Franklin and Danny Hughes ahead of him, playing time is going to be tough to find. If McBride sticks around for a few years, he may find himself in the Leon Franklin role of being the #3 or #4 guy who can get some carries once game outcomes are already decided.
Prediction: Backup running back
