Michigan football: OT Erik Magnuson jokingly announces he’ll start at QB
Jim Harbaugh had a tough choice to make regarding his quarterback situation in 2016, but it looks like his conundrum is solved. Erik Magnuson, the Wolverines’ starting right tackle last season, announced a position change for this upcoming year:
He’s kidding, of course. Wilton Speight, Shane Morris and John O’Korn are the candidates vying for the Michigan QB1 job, but you have to appreciate Magnuson’s sense of humor.
In one sense, the redshirt senior is correct. Magnuson will change positions for 2016, but he won’t be lining up under center. Magnuson is projected to start at left tackle in Michigan’s season opener, which takes place on Sept. 3 against Hawaii.
