Junior Year Highlights:
On Michigan: “I think I can go real far (at Michigan). They say I kind of remind them of past great Michigan defensive ends like Lamarr Woodley and Brandon Graham.”
Scouts Inc.: “Black is a pretty good football player and could prove to be a sleeper. He is a good example of why not to judge a book by its cover.”
Dave Berk, Scout.com: “Black is a player who could line up as a defensive end or at the tackle position. He’s got great burst and will give all out effort on each play. Does a good job going lateral and shows great strength and toughness. With good size and speed, Black is still learing techniques and moves that will take his game to another level. Special player who doesn’t get the credit he deserves.”
Jon Jennings, UMGoBlog.com: A great prospect but will need a year to get stronger. Has size similar to ex-Wolverine Brandon Graham and is just as versatile. Black is a motor player who never quits running and keeps himself alive to make a play. When he is consistent with his technique Black was almost unblockable at times. Black will have a great career at U-M.
