Although it isn’t related to the University of Michigan anymore, it is still news that Wolverine fans are interested in. On Monday former Michigan football standout and first-round pick of the Tennessee Titans, Taylor Lewan will have his court hearing for his involvement in an altercation that happened the night of the Ohio State football game. (via WDIV)
He will be tried on one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery stemming for that incident. Lewan has frequently said that he had no involvement in the altercation and that he was just trying to break up and incident between the people involved.
For now, Lewan should be focused on the court hearing, rather than where to play on a crowed Titans line, and find out what position he fits best after his day in Ann Arbor. Once Lewan gets this taken care of, he will be able to go on to his rookie camps as an NFL, where he will be looking to make an impact.
Lewan was the highest player drafted from Michigan since the Philadelphia Eagles drafted defensive end Brandon Graham with their 13th pick in 2010. He also is the highest drafted player at offensive tackle to come out of Michigan since Jake Long went number 1 overall in 2008.
