Three Things To Know About Joey
1. Michigan's struggles up front over the past few years are well documented. A series of wash outs, recruiting misses, and poor roster management decisions left Michigan short of bodies up front. One of the reasons Michigan was able to make it through were the contributions of Burzynski, a walk-on interior lineman that has always been on the small side.
Over his first two years he played in four and then eight games as a reserve guard. Last year he stepped into the starting lineup for the first time, but went down with a torn ACL.
2. Joey is recoverd from that ACL injury this fall and will be looking to push for playing time yet again on the interior against Kyle Bosch and the injured Kyle Kalis.
