More Michigan Walk-On News

First off, we know that Dearborn, Michigan wide receiver Baquer Sayed who is rated 3 stars by Rivals and had scholarship offers from the MAC, decided to take a preferred walk-on status to the 2010 Michigan Wolverines.

Now comes more walk on news. The next Michigan preferred walk on is Dylan Esterline from Blissfield, Michigan. Dylan played TE in high school but could be moved to the defensive side of the ball: “It doesn’t matter to me whether its tight end or defensive end,” Esterline said. “(I’ll play) whatever position helps get me on the field and that I’ll have the best chance to succeed at.”

Dyan is eager to take on the challenge of being a Wolverine a team he grew up watching: “(Being a walk-on) will make me go up there with a little bit of an extra fire,” said Esterline, who had 21 catches for 384 yards and four touchdowns last fall for Blissfield. “I know it’s going to be a challenge. The coaches are really good with walk-ons. Coach (Rich) Rodriguez was a walk-on at West Virginia and has a place in his heart for them.”

Dylan is 6"6 and 220 and runs a 4.88 40. Good frame and of course will need to put on some weight and work on his speed. I'm guessing he will end up on defense and maybe be a special team player. (maybe he can block a few field goals?)

Another walk-on is Ann Arbor Pioneer's kicker Jeremy Ross who will join the Wolverines next season.
