Started all 13 games at left tackle for Michigan as a fifth-year senior, and started 48 of 50 games played in his collegiate career ... Earned the Big Ten's Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year Award ... Became the first Michigan offensive lineman to score a touchdown since 1948 ... Has good footwork and quickness to handle outside rush, and can get to the second level of a defense to block without much trouble ... Intense, passionate player ... Self motivator that plays with a nasty demeanor ... Ideal height, with the ability to add more bulk ... Still a little raw in terms of tapping into his talent, having switched over from the defensive side of the football in high school to the offensive line in college ... Fine-tuning his technique should provide him with a long and successful career at the next level.
