April 12th should be Nick Sheridan Day in Saline
It appears that the April 12th final spring practice and scrimmage will likely be held at Saline High School but will NOT be open to the public due to capacity concerns. Saline High School is, of course, the alma mater of QB Nick Sheridan who is challenging for the starting position. Sheridan (Jr./So.) is a walk-on to the Michigan team who saw action in two games last season. I would not be shocked if Coach Rodriguez grants him a scholarship (especially if he wins a spot on the two-deep chart) as the Wolverines will only have 70-some of their scholarships spoken for of the allotted 85. As for spring practice, U-M coach Rich Rodriguez said he expects the Wolverines to practice once or twice at Ann Arbor Pioneer High School to get some outdoor work in but the final practice would likely be at Saline High School. Nick will feel right at home. Go Blue!
