The Wolverine talks the five most impressive players so far in 2022! Who on Michigan football’s roster impressed you so far this season? Our Anthony Broome discusses who has drawn the most eyeballs through three games.

Sophomore quarterback J.J. McCarthy stands above all others given his dual-threat ability and star power at the most important position in the sport.

“By far the biggest development of the early going is the idea that Michigan may finally have a star at quarterback,” we said in the video. “McCarthy was going to earn his way on the field by smoothly operating the offense and doing the little things well. We have seen the arm talent and dual-threat ability for over a year. The challenges get tougher moving forward for the Michigan signal-caller, but the offense’s ceiling is unlimited with him under center.”

Here are the other four players that stood out the most in non-conference play.
