Michigan football overhauled its strength and conditioning staff this offseason. The move looks like it is paying dividends for one Wolverine star.
Karan Higdon led Michigan in rushing last year, tallying 994 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground. It was a major step up for a back who gained only 444 yards rushing in his first two seasons.
Could Higdon be in line for more in 2018? He certainly looks the part.
Last night, a photo of Higdon in the weight room began circulating on social media. It is a screenshot from the Instagram story of Ty Rogers, Michigan football's director of multimedia.
In it, Higdon looks noticeably bigger than he was last season.
Higdon is listed at 5-foot-10, 190 pounds on Michigan's roster. That second number doesn't seem accurate, based off the latest photo of him.
Higdon looks like he's definitely over 200 pounds, and provided he maintains his explosiveness, that should help him carry the load for Michigan this fall.
Both Higdon and Chris Evans will be focal points of Michigan's offense in 2018. Evans rushed for 661 yards and six touchdowns last season.
