Take a trip down memory lane back to the class of 2014. The Michigan Wolverines secured the commitment of five-star Jabrill Peppers and was still under head coach Brady Hoke. In that same class, there was a two-star 6-foot-2, 225-pound running back/athlete out of the state of California named Jordan Whittley. Fast forward seven years, and Whittley has gone through about as much as a collegiate athlete could: a transfer to a JUCO, an ACL injury, a major position change, another transfer, a heart tumor, a global pandemic and one additional transfer.
Whittley now weighs in around 350 pounds and provides some much-needed depth to the nose tackle position.
