Michigan redshirt junior CB Blake Countess "has the fluid body type and ballskills that make him an attractive pro prospect," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.
"Countess returned last year and was the most consistent member of the Wolverines' secondary, finishing with a conference-best six interceptions. He will have some hiccups when he takes chances, but Countess has the fluid body type and ballskills that make him an attractive pro prospect," Brugler wrote. The 5-foot-10, 180 pound Countess started in 13 games last season for the Wolverines and tied for first in the Big Ten, and tied for seventh in the FBS with 6 interceptions. Jul 27 - 10:29 AM

Michigan redshirt sophomore Blake Countess has kept his starting right CB job after missing the 2012 season following a knee injury suffered against Alabama.

Countess was considered one of the top young corners in college football prior to the knee injury, which took place in the season opener. He was able to designate last year with medical redshirt tag, so Countess has three more season of eligibility counting 2013. Michigan also lists Countess as their nickel corner, so he could see time in the slot.

Michigan sophomore CB Blake Countess will reportedly miss the 2012 season with a knee injury.

Countess is one of the top young corners in college football and was injured early in the game while covering a punt. The sophomore reportedly tore his ACL. The Wolverines are fairly deep at the position after returning every starter and backup in the secondary except for Troy Woolfolk. Junior Courtney Avery and sophomore Raymon Taylor are the two likeliest options to replace Countess.
