THE SCOOP

A position switch last season paid major dividends for Winovich, who moved from defensive back to linebacker. Not only did he instantly emerge as a starter, but he became a sought-after recruit at his new position, as Rivals.com has him ranked among its top 30 linebackers in the country. With the graduation of Joe Carroll, Winovich will be getting snaps as the Jaguars quarterback.

COLLEGE TALK

After interest in him spiked last year, Winovich committed to Michigan June 1 and expects to play linebacker.

OUR QUESTIONS, HIS ANSWERS



Does coach Bill Cherpak's offense make the transition to quarterback more difficult? It makes it a little trickier. I would not want to be going up against him as a coach because the stuff he throws at us is pretty complicated. But he does a good job of breaking the stuff down. That's the sign of a good coach.

How did you choose Michigan? It was a process I did a lot of thinking about, and it was definitely tough. It was one of those things I had to solve because I didn't want it to affect my teammates anymore with all the hype and stuff.

Since you can't sign until February, do you see that decision changing? No, I do not see it changing at all. I feel pretty solid in my commitment.

Were you apprehensive at all about the move to linebacker? As soon as I got in the hands of my linebackers coach, I don't think any skepticism would be allowed. I believe in myself and wherever my coaches wanted to move me.

Was it a pretty seamless switch? It was pretty natural. I was pretty quick to adapt.
