Farrell: Analyzing DL Cam Goode’s Potential Impact for Michigan
Michigan could use some help on the defensive line so adding another big body in the transfer portal is not a bad thing.
The Wolverines picked up a big-time transfer in UCF defensive lineman Cam Goode. Goode is a 6-foot-2, 315-pound lineman who can rush the passer from the interior of the defensive line but is also an excellent run stuffer.
Out of high school Goode was a three-star prospect out of Washington, DC. He originally committed to Virginia Tech but transferred to UCF early on in his career and in his time in Orlando he appeared in 33 games and showed he also has a knack for knocking the ball loose being 12th in the nation in forced fumbles. He also had six sacks during his time with UCF showing that big man ability to chase.
Michigan will be adding a potential impact player who along with others could attempt to replace the pass rush they had last season such as David Ojabo and Aidan Hutchinson. I wouldn’t expect Goode to be a game-changing force by himself and of course those guys are EDGE stars but he could be a crucial contributor to a defensive line that has to stop heavy run offenses in the conference.
Goode is a three-star transfer prospect. I don’t expect him to become a major force on the Michigan defense but just a piece of the puzzle for the Wolverines.
