Tried out for the team this morning and am fortunate enough to say I will be continuing my football career as a Michigan Wolverine.〽️#GoBlue pic.twitter.com/tPnAF0ipQz— Josh Wilk (@Jwilk_7) February 9, 2017
Wilk, a 2016 graduate of De La Salle High School (MI), helped lead the Pilots to the 2014 Division 2 state championship.
On Monday and Tuesday, the Wolverines took applications for walk-on tryout spots from students. Michigan did not announce how many players earned walk-on spots from the 2017 tryouts in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
