Jim Harbaugh highlights pair of Wolverines who are starting to impress ahead of Week 6
Jim Harbaugh highlighted two players that he has seen a lot of improvement from on Monday. He’s liking what TE Luke Schoonmaker and Edge rusher Mike Morris are doing per On3 Sports’ Clayton Sayfie.
Schoonmaker has been carrying the burden all by himself in the TE room in Ann Arbor. Erick All has been seeing limited playing time due to injuries so far, and Schoonmaker has done a great job. Schoonmaker has 162 yards receiving with 1 touchdown through five games.
Harbaugh sees a future in the NFL for Schoonmaker.
“I always thought Schoony was really good, but he’s playing even better than I thought,” Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh said on the Inside Michigan Football radio show Monday night. “He’s going to be a really good pro tight end.”
With Morris, he has been playing with a lot of emotion and is channelling that into how he plays. Morris has been a force in opposing team’s backfields with 9 solo tackles, 4 sacks, and 1 forced fumble.
One thing that Harbaugh likes about Morris’ game is how consistent he is. Harbaugh can rely on Morris to make a big play when he needs him to.
“Like most players, he’s playing emotionally,” Harbaugh explained. “Emotional people play and coach this game, and to see him kind of letting it out and letting it rip is great to see. There’s been consistency in his game. More production on a consistent basis, and yeah, just have at it, keep letting it rip that way.”
Schoonmaker and Morris get a chance to prove it on the field again Saturday vs. Indiana at noon ET on FOX.
