Ed Warinner has proven to know his way around coaching up offensive linemen. Despite four starters from the 2019 team getting drafted, the position still looks like a potential strength for the Michigan Wolverines heading into 2020.
Reece Atteberry is one of the more intriguing members of the 2020 recruiting class. A three-star from Aurora, Colorado, he brings rare center experience out of high school to a Wolverine squad that is a little light at depth at the position. Zach Carpenter and Andrew Vastardis appear to be in a battle for the position in 2020, but Atteberry brings experience, technique and huge upside in the run game on the interior.
Check out my breakdown for scouting, recruitment and film analysis for what Atteberry brings to the table. Below are some timestamps for the relevant sections of his breakdown:

Make sure you stick around for his comparison, as I think Atteberry has the potential to have a career similar to one of Michigan’s best OC/OT of the decade. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below about Atteberry, and who you want to see in the next episode!
