ANN ARBOR -- After missing most of the 2014 season with injury and taking a redshirt year, redshirt freshman-to-be Jabrill Peppers is expected back healthy and roaming the defensive backfield in 2015.
However, it might not be in his original position.
A report surfaced early Wednesday morning that Peppers told 2015 five-star cornerback Iman Marshall, who was officially visiting Michigan earlier in the week, that Peppers would be moving to safety for the 2015 season.
Sophomore wide receiver Freddy Canteen further proved reports accurate by seemingly confirming Peppers switch to safety on his Twitter account.
"Jabrill Peppers moving to safety is good," Canteen tweeted on Wednesday. "(He) can scrape the field left-to-right and is second-to-none at it."
Peppers retweeted Canteen's tweet to his timeline.
For further confirmation, Peppers himself alluded to the position change on his Twitter account as well on Wednesday afternoon.
"It's a drill next year man," Peppers tweeted. "Come across that middle if you want to."
Peppers, a consensus five-star player coming out of high school, played nickelback and corner for the Michigan defense and appeared in three games before injuries derailed his season.
