Zak Zinter enrolled to Michigan in January ahead of his freshman football season with the Wolverines. A high academic student and an impressive physical specimen at 6-foot-6, 334 pounds, Zinter has acclimated to college smoothly, and five weeks into the season, he has 205 snaps and three starts at right guard already under his belt — injuries to redshirt sophomore tackles Ryan Hayes and Jalen Mayfield thrusted Zinter into a starting role.

“He’s made a few mistakes, but overall, playing this level as a true freshman, he’s been really good,” head coach Jim Harbaugh said. “He’s been good on the point-of-contact blocks, pulls. He’s showing really good athleticism in pass protection.

“Everything, just continuing to improve on a daily, weekly basis. That’s what I’ve seen. It’s been impressive.”
