  MICHIGAN FOOTBALL quarterbacks had to hit three golf carts carrying Papa John's posters on ei- ther side, traveling across the field at 15 yards, 25 yards and up the side- lines. This was a change from previous years, when the first two carts traveled 10 and 20 yards. Quarterbacks needed to hit all three carts to advance." O'Korn is battling redshirt sopho- more Wilton Speight for the starting job. Those two and redshirt junior Shane Morris separated themselves this spring, head coach Jim Harbaugh said. O'Korn told The Houston Chronicle he had no regrets about starting his career at the University of Houston, where he spent parts of two seasons as the team's starting quarterback. He ran the Michigan scout team af- ter transferring last year and earned praise from teammates and coaches for his play. "I couldn't be happier," O'Korn, among 38 college quarterbacks serv- ing as counselors at the prestigious Manning Academy, said. "I'm in a great spot. It's exactly where I'm sup- posed to be. "I certainly appreciate my time in Houston and don't regret going there at all, but I'm definitely where I'm supposed to be and looking forward to this fall." O'Korn threw for 3,117 yards and 28 touchdowns to earn Rookie of the Year honors in the American Athletic Conference as a freshman in 2013, but he lost his starting job five games into the 2014 season. ❏ Authentic Michigan Helmet THE WOLVERINE • P.O.
