The Michigan Wolverines kicked off fall camp on Friday with preparations now underway for the season. Position battles are underway, and the team’s identity is in the process of being molded for the 2021 campaign. The time for talk is over and has shifted into time to work.
Michigan released an updated roster on Friday morning and the names to know over the next month or so are now etched in stone in the leadup to the season. We previously put out a depth chart prediction here, but have updated it to reflect the start of camp.
Here’s a look at how things are expected to shake out with things getting underway this week:
