Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown is very pleased with the development of junior linebacker Noah Furbush.

A special teams contributor a season ago, Michigan junior linebacker Noah Furbush is ready to play.

Now up to 6-foot-5, 238-pounds, the Kenton, Ohio native is in position in the two deep for first year offensive coordinator Don Brown.

"Noah Furbush has a chance to be a real deal, guy," Brown said Monday.

While Furbush is of course focusing on improving himself and ability at linebacker, the other goal within the group is bringing along several freshmen with hopes of seeing the field as well.

"I try to do whatever I can to help out the young guys, freshmen especially," Furbush said. "It's their first time here, first time in a college defense. 

"A lot to learn, a lot on their plate and some had school to worry about a few weeks ago. It's a lot to process as a young guy so you try to make it as easy as you can on them."
