The Michigan Wolverines took a chance on a Long Island quarterback in the class of 2020, Dan Villari, a player who rushed for 1,495 yards and 25 touchdowns, threw for 1,315 yards and 13 touchdowns during his senior year.

Heading into the 2021 season with a year at Michigan under his belt, head coach Jim Harbaugh envisioned a multi-faceted role for Villari where he could line up at anywhere from quarterback, running back, or even wideout.
