Meet Michigan defensive back Benjamin St. Juste.

His Recruiting Story

Attending Michigan's football camp in June of 2015, St. Juste performed as well as any camper in attendance, so well in fact that Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines extended a scholarship offer. St. Juste quickly accepted and despite later interest from Rutgers and an offer from Virginia Tech, the Canadian product couldn't find a better option than the one in Ann Arbor.

Scouting Report

"I am a tall corner and I’ve got long arms,” said St-Juste. “When I play man coverage or press coverage I am aggressive and won’t let the wide receiver go off the line. I’ve got good ball skills and when the ball is in the air, I will go get it because I’ve got a good vertical. I’m smart and can play in a cover two or three. I’m just a very good athlete as a corner.” - Self evaluation

Why Michigan?

"I think Coach Jim Harbaugh is a really good coach,” said St-Juste. “He talked to me and my parents and took us to the Big House. We talked a lot about life and about being a good player, team player and individual. He is a really good coach and I like him.”

Bottom Line

At 6-foot-3, 180-pounds, St. Juste has the size and versatility to factor in at many different positions in Michigan's defensive backfield. With great ball skills and a need to add some weight, cornerback looks like the most ideal place to get his career with the Wolverines underway.
