Michigan secured a quality offensive tackle prospect when Juwann Bushell-Beatty signed on the dotted line.

Recruitment In Summary

Bushell-Beatty's recruitment was over before teammate Jabrill Peppers' and wasn't ever very dramatic. Holding offers from Florida State, Miami, Michigan State and others, he took visits to Penn State, Boston College, Ohio State and more. An official visit to Ann Arbor ended his recruitment and he never came close to wavering.

Ratings and Attributes

Star Rating: JBB is a high three-star or low four-star depending on the scouting service. He's a top-30 offensive tackle prospect.

Strengths: Juwann has decent size for an offensive lineman and could play everything from guard to right tackle at the next level; most project him to the right tackle position. He is fairly athletic and has plenty of room to grow as a football player.

Weaknesses: JBB really needs to clean up his frame and work on his pass protection against the speed rush. He struggled to stay with a loaded group of defensive ends at the Under Armour All-American practices and needs to quicken his kick step. He's a project at tackle.

Future Impact

Years Until He Sees the Field: 2-4

Juwann could see the field as early as his redshirt sophomore year if everything goes as planned; this isn't totally unrealistic considering Michigan is much deeper on the inside than it is at tackle. In reality, I see him turning into a decent right tackle who sees time during his junior or senior season, which is when offensive lineman peak and are actually prepared to see the field.
