Rays of Light: Hill the Spring's Top Safety

Former Michigan standout and Big Ten Network analyst Marcus Ray shares his thoughts on some of the top position battles of the spring and highlights a few incumbents whose spots should be up for grabs.

Much of the defensive buzz in An Arbor this spring has been about the performances turned in by Jabrill Peppers. The redshirt freshman phenom seems poised to live up to the immense hype attached to his arrival.  That said, according to former All-American Marcus Ray another defensive actually earned the distinction of the spring’s top performer.  Ray highlighted junior safety Delano Hill as the most consistent play-maker and on the back end and as a strong candidate for a move up the depth chart.

Ray also sees the linebacker position as one particularly ripe for a shake-up.
