Name: Christian Boivin
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 205 lbs.
High school: Traverse City (MI) West
Position: Safety
Class: Freshman
Jersey number: N/A
Last year: Boivin was a senior in high school. He ran for 940 yards and 11 touchdowns, while also making 72 tackles, 1 sack, 3 interceptions, and 2 blocked kicks.
TTB Rating: N/A

Boivin committed to Michigan as a preferred walk-on in the 2021 class. This came after an odd year where he transferred to Iowa before returning to Traverse City West once Michigan re-instituted the fall football season. He was a standout on both sides of the ball, rushing for 940 yards and 11 touchdowns, while also contributing 72 tackles and 3 interceptions on defense.

Boivin is headed for safety at the next level, but he's a little bit stiff. His change-of-direction skills are not great, but he does have a little bit of burst. To me looks like a guy who could play on kickoff and punt coverage teams, but he would be limited on offense and defense.

Prediction: Redshirt

  1. Good to get a kid out of TC as that's really battleground territory between UM/MSU.

    On a personal note, I'm hoping to spend my summer there. If I see a recruit I will say literally nothing other than "Go Blue". Not that I would recognize them anyway.
