2021 Season Countdown: #105 Mica Gelb


Mica Gelb

Name: Mica Gelb
295 lbs.
High school:
Washington (DC) Woodrow Wilson
Offensive guard
Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number:
Last year:
I did not rank Gelb. He did not play.
TTB Rating:

Gelb is a walk-on offensive lineman with good size for an FBS player. So how does a guy who's 6'4" and 295 lbs. end up as a walk-on instead of a scholarship player elsewhere? Well, Gelb does not have great athleticism. At least based on his high school film, he would pretty much just stand in one place and try to push people around with his upper body. Of course it's helpful to have these types of guys on the scout team and to rep against scholarship guys in practice, but I think that's the ceiling for Gelb unless he has made some huge strides during his time at Michigan.

Prediction: Backup offensive lineman


  1. Ok. So.....try him at NG.
    But I read today Michigan is after a couple more NGs in the transfer portal. One is huge.

    1. There was a 6'3" 330 lbs junior NT in the transfer portal from Tulane. But he withdrew and is staying at Tulane. He's started every game except one since he was a freshman. Alabama was recruiting him out of high school. But some health issue made them decide to leave the recruitment. He has only missed one game in 3 years at Tulane. So I wonder what the health issue was.
