Michigan quarterback John O’Korn is looking to win the starting job for the Wolverines this year and it could be a big year for the rising senior. However, he looked back on the start of his career and he is pretty thankful for his humble beginnings.
O’Korn began his career with the Houston Cougars before transferring to Ann Arbor to continue his career following the 2014 season. He spoke with the Houston Chronicle‘s Joseph Duarte and talked about not regretting his time with the Cougars.
“I certainly appreciate my time in Houston and don’t regret going there at all,” he said. “I’m definitely where I’m supposed to be and looking forward to this fall.”
In 2013, John O’Korn played magnificently well as a freshman for Houston. He threw for over 3,000 yards and 28 touchdowns, winning Rookie of the Year honors in the AAC.
He started six games in 2014 before being benched in favor of Greg Ward Jr., their current starter. Nothing is set in stone just yet, but it could certainly be an interesting couple of months for the Wolverines’ quarterback competition.
