"Exit Interview" is a concept started at WolverineNation last year in which we chat with players leaving Michigan about their experiences with the Wolverines, and in some cases what's next.

Ricky Barnum had an interesting career arc at Michigan. He entered the school as the No. 4 guard in the Class of 2008 and thought he might play as a true freshman. Instead, after a redshirt, he bounced between guard and tackle as a reserve in his first two seasons.

He broke through as a junior, earning the starting job at left guard. Then he suffered an injury, and he almost played center for his final season before a late-camp switch sent him back to guard.
