Over the years, winning a starting role as a Michigan freshman has been no easy task. 

Since Tate Forcier opened the season at quarterback in 2009, only eight true freshmen took the plunge. Devin Funchess, who started at tight end occasionally this season, was the only offensive player.

Craig Roh also started for the Wolverines in 2009, while Carvin Johnson, Ray Vinopal and Courtney Avery received an early look in 2010.

Blake Countess and Desmond Morgan were the freshman starters in 2011 before James Ross III joined Funchess as the only starters in 2012. 

Looking ahead to 2013, graduation took a toll on the offensive line, while a few positions on defense could allow an incoming recruit to get a shot. 

Let's check out the few freshman who might earn a starting slot this fall.
