He's going to be "the guy" in Michigan next year. That will be a great situation for him, getting big minutes in all situations. Unless he's absolutely lights out in camp next year, there's really no reason to take him out of UM.

He has had a really good freshman season, but he's not dominant to the point where he's got nothing left to learn. I like him for another season there.
