Rich Rodriguez expects big contributions from freshman class for University of Michigan football team
All 22 members of Michigan's incoming recruiting class have qualified academically, Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said Monday, and most are on campus now.
"The only one’s not on campus now is Jeremy Gallon and he just got cleared I want to say a week ago, so we should all be in good shape," Rodriguez said.

Gallon remains a candidate for playing time at running back or slot receiver, and several other freshmen will be in the mix for playing time as well. Besides potential starting quarterbacks Tate Forcier and Denard Robinson, defensive tackle William Campbell, running back Vincent Smith and safeties Vladimir Emilien and Mike Jones could play immediately.
Forcier, Smith, Emilien, Jones and Campbell all took part in spring practice.
Rodriguez said freshman running back Fitzgerald Toussaint had an offseason "procedure done" to cure a lingering high school injury, but will be ready by the start of camp. He was bothered by a hamstring injury last year.
