Three Things To Know About Shaun

1. Shaun has the distinction of wearing a pretty famous number — at least famous in a walk-on safety at Michigan way.  His 32 previously belonged to Jordan Kovacs, and while Austin hasn't shown the same ability to get on the field (or, more aptly, the same ability that makes it impossible for him to come off), there is something that just feels right about a walk-on safety wearing that number.  Now this is a legends patch I could get behind.

2. Shaun came to Michigan originally as a quarterback, which is what his primary position was in high school.
