In recent weeks, the Michigan football program has seen some attrition, with players like Tyrone Wheatley Jr., Eddie McDoom and Kareem Walker finding college football homes elsewhere. As a result, that means that the Wolverines could either bank the scholarship, or give it to someone the staff feels is deserving.
On Saturday night, they went with the latter.
Michigan’s starting long snapper a year ago was a redshirt freshman walk-on, Cam Cheeseman, who Coach Harbaugh had praised for the velocity he puts on the ball. He started every game except against Ohio State in the 2017 season, which he missed due to injury.
Well, Cheeseman got the good news on Saturday that he no longer will have to pay for his tuition at the University of Michigan, as he’s officially been put on scholarship.
Cheeseman is expected to retain his starting status, though he is being pushed by senior Andrew Robinson.
