This week marks the beginning of fall camp for the Maize and Blue, who have been doing well throughout the offseason and are now looking to add the final stages of preparation before kicking off a new season on September 2nd. With fall camp and a new season comes a few Michigan football position changes — three Wolverines have seen some movement, according to the team’s newly updated 2023 roster page.

3 Michigan football position changes ahead of the 2023 college football season

According to the updated Michigan football roster, a few notable Wolverines have either changed positions ahead of the 2023 season or have dropped their status as dual-threat players.

First off, as many Michigan football fans already know, former three-star wide receiver Amorion Walker was converted from wide receiver to cornerback during the spring, though he remained listed as a WR/DB on the roster. Now, Walker is strictly a defensive back and could earn himself a starting spot across from Will Johnson, who is Michigan’s CB1 this fall.

Secondly, Kalel Mullings, a senior who previously served as a dual-threat player for the Wolverines, is no longer playing both ways. While Mullings served as a running back and a linebacker for the Maize and Blue in years past, he is now strictly a running back, adding even more depth and versatility to Michigan’s top-ranked RB room.

Finally, freshman defensive line prospect Enow Etta, who was originally committed to Michigan football as an interior threat, is now going to see action off the edge, as he was recently changed from tackle to end. With some questions surrounding depth across the defensive line this year, expect Etta to see the field a good bit, considering he is still just a freshman for Michigan football.
