Atteberry played in 26 games during his U-M career. He saw time on both sides of the ball.
In 2023, Atteberry played in 14 contests. He made his defensive line debut in Week 1 against ECU.
Atteberry played in seven games on the defensive line during the 2023 national championship campaign. He logged two solo tackles as an interior defensive lineman against Minnesota on Oct. 7. The following week, he added an assist and a quarterback against Indiana.
In 2022, Atteberry played in just three games, which allows him to take a redshirt and extend hi eligibility. He saw time on the offensive line as Michigan repeated as Big Ten champions and returned to the College Football Playoff.
Atteberry played in eight games during the 2021 season. He made four appearances at right guard while contributing on special teams in four other contests.
In the 2020 COVID-19 season, which does not count against players’ NCAA eligibility, Atteberry played in just one contest. He made his U-M debut against Minnesota on special teams.
With his 2022 redshirt and 2020 COVID year, Atteberry could potentially two more seasons. We’ll see where he lands after being part of a special run at Michigan.
