"Exit Interview" is a series started at WolverineNation last season in which we speak with Michigan players who are leaving the Wolverines.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Nathan Brink started from the bottom as a preferred walk-on and worked his way up, the cliched story of a guy doing everything he could to be a college contributor.
Then, in an instant, it all disappeared as an injury forced Brink to retire with a year of eligibility remaining. Between his arrival and the end, he became a rotation player on the defensive line, making three tackles -- 2.5 for loss -- in 16 career games and one start.
