Shallman has insisted that he is being recruited to Michigan as a tailback, and I won't call him a liar. However, I am not too enthusiastic about Shallman's abilities as a runner. I do think he has the ability to make an impact in college like former Purdue fullback Mike Alstott, but I don't think he's the type of runner who can be a feature back in the Big Ten. Michigan still needs to pursue a big-play back who can be the type of kid to run the ball 15-20 times a game. I would prefer to see Shallman used as a fullback/H-back type player.
