Michael Schofield: Michigan Football Gets 11th Commit

ErocWolverineSenior Writer IJune 17, 2008

Michael Schofield:

Overview:
Good combination of size and athletic ability. Skill set fits well with what new Michigan Offensive line need to be able to do. He is a former Tight End who also ran hurdles on his high school track team his freshman and sophomore year. Good get for Coach Rod and staff.

Strengths:
Very quick feet, who steps flat and covers defenders nicely. Does very good job at backside cut off. He has able to block defenders at second level and in secondary. He finishes his blocks very well. Hustles all the time and shows good speed for player his size. Film shows him tackling Defensive Back 50 yards down the field after interception.

Needs Work:
He plays for predominately a running team so his pass protection is not as advanced as his running blocking. Showed a nice wide base, but his feet went dead and defenders were able to gain outside leverage. His overall footwork in general could be touch better. He would also benefit from some private tutoring from one Mr. Barwis.
