We would like to thank German Green for taking the time out of his day to answer a few questions for us and wish him the best of luck during his senior season and beyond. German and Gemon Green are brothers first, teammates second. Having a brother-duo entering Michigan soon should be exciting for the fans. The class of 2018 is going to be a thrilling class and Michigan will be contending for many years to come.
