Drevno pleased with winter conditioning

Michigan's OC Tim Drevno praises the "conditioning" of his players, talks offensive line competition.

First day of spring practice is in the books for Michigan football, and so far offensive coordinator Tim Drevno has no complaints on what he’s seeing on the field.

“They’ve worked really hard, done a nice job in the classroom the last couple days,” Drevno said of his collection of offensive players. “Like we’ve said in terms of the winter conditioning, have some very athletic guys, especially in terms of the wide receiver position, and other places on the offense. It’s been really good.”

Adding: “The last couple days we met has been very good, and to carry it over to today, which was nice to see,” Drevno said. “Just them doing it at a high level, you learn fast and you can fix problems, which is real good.”

And whether it’s in the classroom or on the field, Drevno says his players have carried momentum into spring after a strong winter workout season.

“Just keep building on what we did from January with our winter conditioning,” Drevno said. “Keep taking care of our body, keep getting stronger. If guys need to keep losing weight, keep losing weight. If guys need to keep outing on weight, keep putting on weight. Just understand the concepts.”

U-M only returns starters Mason Cole and Ben Bredeson on its offensive line, which means three starting roles are up for grabs. However, Drevno gave no insight on who those other viable options might be. 

“We’re rotating guys through there, and we’ll see who the best five guys are,” Drevno said.

Michigan plays its annual spring game on April 15.
