Michigan adds walk-on to ensure depth at QB
This is why Brady Hoke went out and added walk-on Garrett Moores from Detroit Catholic Central on Wednesday.
WolverineNation's Tom Vanharren tweeted the news first, while Moores confirmed by saying he's "officially a Michigan Wolverines football player."
Not only is the move smart and necessary, but Michigan is getting a solid athlete and great teammate in the process. It's almost a little puzzling why Moores didn't receive any significant scholarship offers, but I'm sure Hoke is more than happy to have him fall into his lap.
Moores is a 6-foot-4, 200-pound pro-style quarterback with good mobility to stretch and create plays. He has above-average arm strength and decent technique, but has a strong command on the field, great football IQ and really has a grasp on the game.
While 247Sports and Scout.com does not have ratings for him, MaxPreps listed Moores as the No. 3 overall quarterback in the state of Michigan for the class of 2013 (No. 136 nationally).
Moores led Catholic Central to the 2012 Division 1 state championship in a losing effort to Detroit Cass Tech, where he passed for 221 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.
