UM's Peppers featured on SI regional cover

The Detroit News
Michigan junior Jabrill Peppers is featured on one of SI's four regional covers this week.

Michigan junior Jabrill Peppers will be featured one of Sports Illustrated’s four regional covers for its annual college football preview issue that will hit newsstands this week.

Peppers, who is listed as a linebacker/defensive back on Michigan’s roster, is expected to also return kicks and could contribute on offense again much like he did in the second half of last season.

He was one of three unanimous selections for Sports Illustrated’s preseason All-American team, along with Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson and Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett.

Peppers was also named to several preseason watch lists, including the Paul Hornung Award that is presented annually to college football’s best all-around player.

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen, University of Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr. and Watson are featured on the other three regional covers.

Michigan expects Peppers to stand out all over field
