Fullback Vince Helmuth from Saline, Michigan (an Ann Arbor suburb).
Vince told GoBlueWolverine, "I committed, I committed to Michigan!"
Helmuth was a constant presence at Michigan football games this past fall ("I went to every game this fall but the Eastern Michigan game" he told us), so we watched him closely at the US Army Junior Combine this past January in San Antonio. He'd lost some weight and, mainly, had REALLY gotten himself into excellent shape since last fall, when he had looked like an average-looking defensive lineman. At the combine Helmuth looked 6-foot-2, a rock-hard 250-260 pounds, and he worked out at fullback. Vince runs with an upright form, his running form reminiscent somewhat of a piston -- but he ran an excellent 4.34 second shuttle, outstanding for a fullback. He had a very good 24 bench press reps too.
