The worst kept secret in college football this spring is no longer a secret. Michigan has announced the addition of former Iowa quarterback Jake Rudock to its roster.
“I am excited for Jake to get here and compete with the quarterbacks that we already have in the program,” said Michigan passing game coordinator/quarterbacks and wide receivers coach Jedd Fisch. “I’ve known Jake for a long time, since 2011, and I am excited to be a part of the staff that is now coaching him.”I think that Jake brings great maturity and experience to the program. He has 25 starts under his belt in the Big Ten and a winning record of 15-10. All of that, combined with the quarterbacks we currently have in the program and all the skill we are surrounding him with, we are excited about the things that Jake can do for our program.”
A product of Weston, Fla., Rudock fired 34 career touchdowns as a Hawkeye, completing 417-of-691 passes for 4,819 yards.
How will Rudock be perceived in his new locker room? “They can bring in 100 quarterbacks, it’s not going to matter to me,” said Wolverines signal caller Shane Morris.
