If Devin Bush wins the award he’ll be the first Wolverine to achieve the accomplishment in the 34 years that the award has been presented. Bush is also the only representative on the list from the B1G and would be the first player from the conference to win the award since Ohio State‘s James Laurinaitis did it back in 2007.

Here’s the list of all five finalists:

  • Devin Bush, Michigan
  • Josh Allen, Kentucky
  • Tre Lamar, Clemson
  • Dylan Moses, Alabama
  • Devin White, LSU

Last Saturday Bush had one of the best performance’s of his career, racking up a season-high 11 tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss against Indiana. He’s been a major contributor for the Wolverines on defense all season long boasting a team-high 73 tackles, including nine tackles for a loss and five sacks.

Facing Ohio State

Devin Bush also got media attention today when talking about his thoughts regarding Michigan’s chances of beating Ohio State on Saturday while wearing a Revenge Tour hat.

In the clip above, Bush states that: “We haven’t beaten Ohio State in while. That’s something we wanna do and that’s something we’re gonna do.”

Ohio State is the last team left on Michigan’s Revenge Tour, having won the last six meetings between these two fierce rivals. As Bush says in the clip below “You can feel the hate.”

If Bush is right and the Wolverines beat the Buckeyes on Saturday, it will be their first win in Columbus since 2000. With both a spot in the Big Ten Championship Game and the College Football Playoffs on the line, this Saturday’s game will be one of the most exciting in recent memory.

A win and a solid performance would also go a long way in helping Devin Bush win the Butkus Award.

Michigan surges to ‘Crystal Ball’ lead for 5-star quarterback

Published

on

Michigan vs. Ohio State.

That is what it could come down to for quarterback recruit J.J. McCarthy, who according to 247 Sports is the No. 2 pro-style quarterback (No. 19 overall player) in the class of 2021.

McCarthy, who plays for La Grange Park Nazareth Academy in Illinois, recently visited the Michigan campus for the first time and he was blown away.

From 247 Sports:

“I really felt the love from the coaching staff like crazy,” McCarthy said. “A couple highlights for me would be bowling with Coach (Jim) Harbaugh and interacting with Coach (Ben) McDaniels as well as the rest of the coaching staff. Watching practice and seeing how McDaniels and Harbaugh were actually teaching and going through the drills was surreal.”

According to 247 Sports, respected analysts Steve Wiltfong, Allen Trieu, and Michigan insider Sam Webb all currently have McCarthy going to the Wolverines.

If you have not yet seen McCarthy sling it, check out these highlights. He truly looks like he could step onto a college field right now and compete for a job.
