MLB Obi Ezeh Named Big Ten Player of the Week

Following a very impressive performance at Illinois this past Saturday, junior MLB Obi Ezeh was named the Big 10 PotW. Ezeh was flying all over the field and was a vocal leader for the Wolverines. He tallied 12 tackles, 2 of them for losses, and also scored the Wolverine's first points of the game as he jumped the route of TE Michael Hoomanawanui to pick off a Juice Williams pass and then returned it 53 yards for a TD.

Ezeh joins defensive end Brandon Graham as the only other Wolverine to win PotW honors, which is fitting. Both of those players are having very good seasons thus far. Ezeh's team leading 69 tackles are the 3rd best so far in the Big 10 this year. Graham's 9 sacks lead the Big Ten and also are tied for the most in the country. Wolverine fans can only hope that these two finish the season as strongly as they've started.
