ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter named an honorary captain for Michigan’s home opener

Michigan is bringing a piece of the NFL to its sidelines, but in the form of ESPN’s standout NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Schefter, who graduated from Michigan in 1989, was named an honorary captain for the Wolverines’ home opener against Cincinnati.

Schefter is most known for tracking down breaking some of the biggest NFL scoops, especially during the NFL’s free agency period. He’s one of the most sourced and trusted reporters at ESPN, which is exemplified by his 6.7 million followers on Twitter.

He joined ESPN in 2009, after stints at NFL Network and The Denver Post. While he was at Michigan, Schefter was an editor for the university’s student newspaper, The Michigan Daily, where he covered Wolverines athletics.

After graduating from Michigan, however, he received his Master’s degree from Northwestern.

Michigan takes on Cincinnati this Saturday at 11 a.m. in Ann Arbor. The game will air on ABC.
