Michigan football spring practice starts today.
Defensive tackle Will Johnson turned in the day’s most impressive performance, wowing the scouts and onlookers with an eye-popping and record-setting 47 reps of 225 pounds.
The effort eclipsed anything that has been previously achieved by a Wolverine and broke what was believed to be the NFL Combine record—42 reps set by former U-M left tackle Jake Long last season.
