Magnuson impressed by Onwenu

Michigan's Erik Magnuson praised freshman offensive lineman Michael Onwenu for his play so far in fall camp.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Only a freshman, Michael Onwenu is already catching high praise for his play on the field. 

Known as "Big Mike" coming out of Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech, Onwenu certainly lives up to his nickname, listed at 6-foot-3 and a whomping 350-pounds. But the difference between Onwenu compared to other normal 300-pounders, is his ability to move with his feet, says Magnuson. 

"He's a big guy, he carries it very well," Magnuson said of Onwenu. "He doesn't look overweight or anything like that. He's pretty impressive." 

Adding: "He moves like he way lighter. He looks like he's way lighter. He's really impressive, I've never seen anything like it."
