Wangler, No. 16, is a wide receiver who came from De La Salle. Wangler is the second in his family to play football for U of M, but he’s not the last. His dad John Wangler was a star quarterback and brother Jared hopes to join the team next year.

“The team’s been working hard all week, we’ve been going over scouting reports, going over film and just ultimately working hard to be able to prepare for Notre Dame,” he said. “I think it’s going to be a great atmosphere, it’s going to be wonderful, the student section is going to be ridiculous, they’ve been supporting us all week.”
