Taylor Upshaw arrived to play for the Michigan Wolverines with plenty of family ties to college football.
His father, Regan, was an All-American defensive tackle at California and first-round draft pick who played in the NFL 1996-2004. Upshaw’s older brother, Regan Jr., was a linebacker who walked on at Clemson.
Upshaw, however, was a late bloomer. He didn’t play organized football until his junior year of high school.
“I have a long way to go,” Upshaw told the Bradenton Herald in Dec. 2017. “I wouldn’t even say I’m close. I just have to continue to get better. But they’re going to develop me.”
