On Monday, Michigan football began spring practices for the 2023 college football season. Just days into the Wolverines spring ball sessions, there’s already a key position change and a jersey swap.
Michigan football sees spring ball changes
After two days of Michigan spring ball, Wolverine sophomore Amorion Walker has been moved from wide receiver to full-time cornerback. According to reports, Walker will compete for a starting cornerback spot on the other side of the field from standout corner Will Johnson. Amorion Walker was a three-star wide receiver recruit in the Wolverines’ 2022 recruiting class, and came to Michigan as a product of Ponchatoula High School in Ponchatoula, LA.
Amorion Walker’s best physical trait his his frame — Walker stands at 6-4 and weighs in at 190 pounds, Additionally, Walker clocked a 6.10 3-cone drill, which if made official, would be faster than any time in NFL Combine history (Per uofm.coverage, Instagram). This move is great for the Michigan Wolverines, who have some depth concerns ahead of the 2023 season.
Walker expected to make jersey change as well
On top of changing from offense to defense, Amorion Walker is expected to change jerseys from No. 4 to the coveted No. 1. Walker will join the likes of Michigan greats such as Braylon Edwards and Anthony Carter, both wide outs, to wear number one in the Maize and Blue.
For any Michigan football fans questioning the move, just remember that standout defensive back Mike Sainristil started his college career as a wide out as well, before converting to cornerback ahead of the 2022 season.
