No team has won more games in the history of college football than the Michigan Wolverines. In fact, out of the teams with 600 or more wins in their history, Michigan also has the highest win percentage.
When a team wins as many games as Michigan has, you can bet they have had some pretty amazing players along the way and that is certainly the case for the Wolverines.
Since 1898, 130 Wolverines have been named first-team All-Americans. Included on that list are Charles Woodson, Desmond Howard, Jim Harbaugh, and Anthony Carter, just to name few.
So, who will be the next great Michigan Wolverines' player?
The answer is Daxton Hill.
Daxton, who likes to go by Dax, is a 5-star safety out of Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
When watching Hill on film, it is obvious he is a very special talent who has the athletic ability to become one of the all-time greats to ever wear the maize and blue. In fact, of all the players in the Class of 2019, Hill has the second-best SPARQ score with a 143.76.
Dax's speed is absolutely off the charts as he ran a laser-timed 4.30 40-yard dash. To put that into perspective, the top 40-time in this year's NFL Scouting Combine was 4.29 seconds posted by Zedrick Woods out of Mississippi.
In addition to his blazing speed, Hill also posted the third-best vertical out of the Class of 2019 participants with a 43.6-inch jump. In comparison, NBA great Vince Carter had a vertical of 43 inches back when he was coming out of college.
Not only can Hill run and jump with the best of them, but as you can see in the film above, he is great in coverage and he is not afraid at all to mix it up in the box and make a tackle.
As we know, there is no such thing as a guarantee when it comes to recruiting but when all is said and done, I am confident that we will have watched one of the best ever to wear the winged helmet as a Michigan Wolverine.
