|Kyle Bosch with offensive line coach Darrell Funk|
Weight: 307 lbs.
High school: Wheaton (IL) St. Francis
Position: Offensive guard
Jersey number: #65
Last year: Bosch was a senior in high school. I gave him a TTB Rating of 88.
Bosch committed to Michigan in February 2012. Despite being ranked by some sites as an offensive tackle - and playing tackle for his high school team - Bosch looks more like an offensive guard at the next level. He graduated early to enroll at Michigan in January, where he participated in spring practices.
He has excellent size for a kid coming out of high school, and reports out of spring practices were positive. Because of his considerable talent, early enrollment, and good size, I think Bosch is the most likely of the freshman offensive linemen to play. He probably won't be one of the five best linemen right off the bat, but he has a chance to be a Justin Boren-type injury replacement at some point in the season. The coaches would probably want to redshirt him, but the interior offensive linemen are very inexperienced, so he should at least be able to push those guys.
Prediction: Redshirt if possible
