Name: Wyatt Shallman
Height & Weight: 6’3” 250 lbs.
High School: Detroit Catholic Central Shamrocks (MI)
Early offers from Cincinnati and Michigan. Good friends with current 2012 UM commit Matt Godin. Michigan is thought to lead early.
Where Hoke Sees Him Playing: “They envision me as a big tailback like (New York Giants standout) Brandon Jacobs,” he said of the Wolverines. “They want me to play tailback. That sounds great. I really want to.”
On Michigan After Upon Receiving Offer: “Oh my god, it’s the Wolverines so I’m really excited for it. It’s just one of the best college football teams in the nation always. I’m kind of at a loss of words.”
Jon Jennings, UMGoBlog.com: “Shallman is an old school football player who plays many positions and plays them all well. Offensively he can play both fullback and running back. He is a great blocker who is athletic enough to get into the 2nd and 3rd levels and still make an impact blocking while he has the skills needed to be successful with the ball in his hand. On defense he played mostly defensive tackle. He does a great job of staying low and creating leverage against the offensive linemen. He is very quick off the snap and has a variety of moves to get into the backfield in a hurry. Michigan is recruiting him as a RB/FB combo but I would not be surprised to see Shallman, one day, going both ways.”
Allen Trieu, Scout.com: “The 6’3, 248-lb Shallman could be a fullback or defensive lineman at the next level. Since fullback is not a position every school uses, we’re projecting him as a tackle, where he played last year. He’s a very good player. He’s aggressive and has a quick first step. Toledo, Syracuse, Penn State, Notre Dame and Bowling Green have all shown interest and invited him to campus, and we think that’s just the beginning.”
