57 Days to Michigan Football

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Season number 135 against gets closer.

Sophomore Derrick Green, RB

Number: 27

Hometown: Richmond, VA (Hermitage High School)

Height/Weight: 5'11 / 227 lbs.

Three Things to Know About Derrick

1. He cut down a bunch of weight to be better at football. Last year, Green was listed at 240 pounds on the official roster. That didn't sit well, so he burned off 20 pounds in the spring. He's now listed at 220 explosive pounds.

2. Don't be surprised if Green works his way to the starting running back position, either. Offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier recruited Derrick while at Alabama, and missed out on him. Now that they're both on at the same school, Nussmeier might tailor the running game specifically for Green.

3. Green has a pretty epic tattoo of Bane on his whole back. It's a bit hard to see in the lighting, but it's there.
