ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Linebacker Jake Ryan was supposed to be the brightest spot of the Wolverines defense next year. A season removed from being Michigan’s leading tackler, the expectations were high -- Michigan’s MVP? Big Ten defensive player of the year? All-American?

But those hopes were dashed when he tore his ACL just a few games into spring practice.

Now, the Wolverines have to look to rotate in other players with less experience or playmaking abilities, and by the sounds of it, two names have jumped to the forefront of the conversation -- Cam Gordon and Brennen Beyer.
