football recruiting issue Jake Butt Believes He Can Make An Impact At Tight End In 2013 When Jake Butt committed to Michigan on Feb. 19, 2012, he possessed some evidence of what the Wolverines intended to do with their tight ends ��� Kevin Koger made 23 grabs for 244 yards and four touchdowns in 2011 ��� but most of his conversations with the U-M coaches were about the future of the position. In 2012, Michigan tight ends still caught just 19 balls, but the receptions were good for 14.3 yards per catch and resulted in five touchdowns, with true freshman Devin Funchess proving to be one of the Maize and Blue���s biggest playmakers throughout the campaign. Butt made 68 receptions for 907 yards and 12 touchdowns in his senior season. photo by lon horwedel
