Patrick Kugler came on board as the fifth of Michigan's offensive line commits, but he could be one of the most important. The son of former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach and current UTEP head coach, Sean Kugler, Patrick looks to be Michigan's best bet at a future starting center. With few options at center on the team currently, Kugler could make an early push at playing time, and with the proper development early, Patrick could fight his way past Jack Miller on the depth chart. Still, it would be a shock to see him start early in 2013.
