BTN Analyst Says Perry Poised to Contribute

The Michigan submarine surfaced briefly Wednesday for BTN to get a glimpse at the football team. One analyst says he will be surprised if one true freshman in particular doesn't contribute this season.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The Michigan football submarine has surfaced momentarily, even if contractual duties come into play.

The Big Ten Network crew of Dave Revsine, Howard Griffith and Gerry DiNardo made their summer camp rounds with a pitstop in Ann Arbor on Wednesday to preview a team that has purposely gone quiet.

Revsine was able to tweet out some thoughts on the football team momentarily after the practice was over and delivered some interesting conversation pieces. One of which was about a certain player in particular.

A true freshman from Brother Rice.

Revsine touted the abilities of freshman receiver Grant Perry as someone who could see early playing time this season.

“I’d be surprised if Grant Perry doesn’t play some at wide receiver,” Revsine tweeted on Wednesday. “Tough to tell on Brian Cole, kind of up and down.”

Despite having a promising player ready to make an impact this season, it’s clear that U-M still needs someone to step up and become a playmaker.

Just like last year, Revsine noted, one has yet to stand out.

“Wide receiver looks to be what it was a year ago,” he tweeted. “Issue will be whether a deep threat can emerge. Better offensive line play could obviously help there.”
