Occasionally, having a well-stocked college roster can be both advantageous and problematic. While talented players contribute to significant victories, they often have relatively short tenures. Take, for instance, the remarkable three-year journey of Michigan’s 2021 recruiting class members. With three wins, an unblemished record against Ohio State, three Big Ten titles, three College Football Playoff appearances, and a national championship, the achievements are noteworthy.

Junior Colson, standing at 6-3 and weighing 247 pounds, embodies this success. Today, the linebacker declared his departure for the NFL, feeling that he has fulfilled all his goals at Michigan. Colson has consistently delivered outstanding performances during his time in Ann Arbor. In his freshman year, he participated in all 14 games, establishing himself as a key player in U-M’s defense over the past two seasons. His remarkable stats for this year include a team-leading 95 tackles, surpassing the next closest Wolverine by 30 tackles. Colson’s on-and-off-field contributions were further recognized as he clinched the Lott Award.

As a prospective professional, Colson holds the impressive title of the No. 3 linebacker by ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. and the No. 2 linebacker according to ESPN’s Field Yates. NFL scouts anticipate him as a top-50 pick in the upcoming draft.
