Members of the Michigan football team arrived in Ann Arbor on Sunday to officially report to the team's fall camp, officially kicking off the 2012 campaign.
The Wolverines' first team workout will take place Monday afternoon. Head coach Brady Hoke and selected players are scheduled to meet with the media afterward.
"I'm excited, ready to go. It's the last one and I've got to make it my best one," Michigan senior receiver Roy Roundtree said in an MGoBlue.com video. "I'm ready for this, all the seniors are."
Michigan, according to MGoBlue.com, welcomes 37 freshmen into camp this season and will hold 29 organized practices before opening the year against Alabama on Sept. 1 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
"Last year, I had no clue what to expect," sophomore cornerback Blake Countess said in the video. "This year I'm a bit more comfortable. I know my coaches a lot better, I know my scheme a lot better.
"I'm trying to get better every day."
The No. 8 Wolverines will hold their annual media day Sunday, Aug. 12 -- which will be followed by the newly-dubbed "Michigan football Youth Day," formerly known as "Fan Day."
Michigan will hold six practices this week before media day. All workouts are closed to the media, and no freshmen will be made available before the beginning of the season.
"Right now, I'm worried about camp," Michigan senior center Ricky Barnum said in the video. "We'll start thinking about Alabama when Alabama comes."
