Morgan, U-M Adjusted to Practices This Spring

Michigan senior linebacker Desmond Morgan says the Wolverines adjusted well to practices in spring, believes Wolverines' defense made progress.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan's linebackers left some room to be desired in 2014, partly because of the absence left by senior linebacker Desmond Morgan.

Out with an injury and utilizing a redshirt season, Morgan is back as a fifth-year player for the Wolverines hoping to add to his 229 career tackles with 31 starts at Michigan.

Now working under defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin and head coach Jim Harbaugh, Morgan says the spring had a a new feel in practice.

"It's been a little different," Morgan said. "It's been a little bit longer but it's been intense. I know I think the biggest thing for us is we've been just kind of learning and soaking more stuff up with new schemes and stuff like that.

"The on the field time has really helped us a tremendous amount and I think he knew that was going to happen and that's why he structured it the way he did. We've tried to learn as much as we could this spring and I think guys have made a lot of progress with it."
