Michigan football fans can officially breathe easier. Jim Harbaugh has announced that he’ll be back next season after entertaining some NFL talk once again.

And that means the Wolverines will likely be favorites to win the Big Ten for a third straight year, especially with JJ McCarthy back for his second full season as QB1 and both Donovan Edwards and Blake Corum back in the backfield.

Michigan should be scary once again.

And these second-year guys will undoubtedly help the cause.

One could argue that Michigan has become the new ‘DLU’ with a number of guys coming through over the past few years and heading to the NFL.

Derrick Moore could be next up.

In his first season with the Wolverines, he played in 14 games and had eight tackles and two sacks. He made some big plays but he hasn’t even scratched the surface. He didn’t see the field a ton in year one, but Mazi Smith and Mike Morris are gone from the defensive line group and that’ll open the door for Moore.

Right now, he’s not being talked about a whole lot as a potential breakout star for the Wolverines in 2023 and that’s a shame because he’s about to be.

But he may just like flying under the radar.
