Offense looks different without Horford 

January, 1, 2012
Next season, the Wolverines will most likely have one of the strongest inside games in the country with 2012 power forward commit Mitch McGary. But this season, with sophomore forward Jon Horford out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his foot, Michigan’s post game will look a little different.

Redshirt sophomore forward Jordan Morgan has secured himself the starting spot for the Wolverines, but the backup big man is a bit more unexpected -- 6-foot-9 sophomore forward Evan Smotrycz.

Smotrycz has been a solid wing player for Michigan this season, but with Horford out, the sophomore leapfrogged 6-foot-10 junior Blake McLimans for the backup position.
