Maurice Hurst Jr. will look to help replace the production of Quinton Washington in 2014. - Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE
Michigan gots its letter of intent from the big defensive tackle out of Massachusetts earlier this morning.
Maurice Hurst Jr. enters Michigan as an intriguing prospect. He has the prototypical size to slot into the middle of Michigan's defense at the one-tech spot; Hurst Jr. is big enough at over 300lbs. and stout enough at 6'2 to hold up at the center of the defense. However, he was also a running back at times for his highschool team, and possesses above average athleticism for a kid his size.
He will most likely redshirt this coming year, but with Quinton Washington departing, there will be a need for big-bodied backups at the center of Michigan's defense in 2014.
