Terrence Talbott: 2010 Michigan Wolverine -- Cornerback -- Signing Day Recap

Posted at 4:00pm -- 2/18/2010

Terrence Talbott: 2010 Michigan Wolverine

Height: 5'10
Weight: 172 lbs.
Position: Cornerback
High School: Wayne (Ohio)
Head Coach: Jay Minton
Recruiter: Coach Jay Hopson / Bruce Tall
Class: 2010 Michigan Wolverine Recruiting Class (Signed)

Terrence is a very good overall athlete who is a natural cover cornerback. Terrence had some impressive combine numbers; a thirty-five inch vertical jump, a 4.5 40, a nine foot broad jump, and a 4.10 shuttle run. These numbers are very high and indicate an above average athlete, even for major college status. Take note especially of the 4.10 shuttle time (many skill position players are in the 4.2-4.5 range) and the 35-inch vertical jump. It is very likely that Terrence is also capable of helping Michigan on special teams.

Terrence is a very physical player for his size and is very good in run support. Fundamentally, Terrence appears to be sound. In particular, he has good/quick feet, is very explosive, and breaks well on the ball.

Needs work:
His size could be an issue, and taller, physical wide receivers could be a handful for him.

Terrence reminds GBMW of this former Michigan Wolverine:
Todd Howard

Red-shirt or play his freshman year:
Red-shirt, unless needed on special teams.

Where do they rank him:
ESPN: 3-Star .. #33 at position.
Rivals: 3-Star .. #N/A at position.
Scout: 3-Star .. #108 at position.

Final Thoughts:
Terrence is a very good player with good athletic ability, which will probably help UM out on special teams and add depth to the defensive backfield. His biggest problem might be going up against taller wide receivers, but he has great combine numbers that will help in defending big receivers. He is a physical player for his size and is a very good run support cornerback.
