BRISTOL, Conn. -- Denard Robinson set all sorts of records at Michigan. He became the NCAA's career quarterback rushing leader. He broke multiple school records.

And throughout a tumultuous three years for Rich Rodriguez in Ann Arbor, he and his former left tackle Taylor Lewan are often looked at as bright spots during that time frame. Along the way, Robinson turned into a Michigan cultural icon with his shoelaces untied and dreadlocks flapping in the wind as he raced past defenders the past four seasons.

Robinson caught up with WolverineNation at ESPN Headquarters in Bristol, Conn., last week to discuss his career.

Previous Exit Interviews: FB John McColgan, CB Tony Anderson, DL Will Heininger, LB Brandon Herron, WR Jordan Barpal, TE Kevin Koger, WR Martavious Odoms, DT Mike Martin

Alex Schwab played three seasons at Michigan and never played a down. He was one of Michigan's scout team players, a guy who knew early in his career as a walk-on he'd never see the field. The closest he'd come is being on the other side of a block by David Molk.

Previous Exit Interviews: FB John McColgan, CB Tony Anderson, DL Will Heininger, LB Brandon Herron

He never played in a game in his Michigan career and if you didn't study the roster, you might not ever know who former Wolverines receiver Jordan Barpal was. The 5-foot-10, 166-pound walk-on spent three seasons on the scout team and instead of coming back for one more year, the West Bloomfield, Mich. native decided to graduate and move on from football.

Previous Exit Interviews: FB John McColgan; CB Tony Anderson; DL Will Heininger

Brandon Herron came to Michigan from Texas expected to do big things for the Wolverines under Lloyd Carr. He redshirted, played for three years under Rich Rodriguez, a season under Brady Hoke, and between injuries and depth never found a real niche with the Wolverines.

Will Heininger started 12 of 13 games last season, yet another former Michigan walk-on turned defensive contributor.

He made 36 tackles in his career, 4.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks -- almost all in his final season at Michigan.

Previous Exit Interviews: FB John McColgan

Former Michigan cornerback Tony Anderson over and over again came real close to seeing significant time for the Wolverines. He played mostly on special teams during his career, but the walk-on did see time at cornerback in 2009 and 2010 -- and could have seen more playing time this season before an injury derailed that. He even said he was pushing for good playing time before he got hurt this fall.

"Exit Interview" is a feature at WolverineNation where we chat with departing seniors from the Michigan football and men's basketball programs about their time in Ann Arbor in a Q&A format.

Former Michigan fullback John McColgan walked on to the team before his freshman year under Lloyd Carr, didn't play until 2009 and was mostly a special teams player and a little-used fullback until this season, when the shift from the spread offense to a pro-style offense made him a more valuable part of the Michigan offense.

For his career, he caught two passes for 17 yards and a touchdown and had nine special teams tackles. Here's McColgan:
