Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan left tackle Taylor Lewan was named the Big Ten's best offensive lineman in 2012.

Michigan offensive lineman Taylor Lewan earned the Big Ten's 2012 Rimington-Price Offensive Lineman of the Year award. Lewan started every game at left tackle this year for the Wolverines.

Lewan came to Michigan in 2009 as a four-star prospect out of Arizona. He redshirted his first season before making a solid impact in 2010. The lineman appeared in 11 games, with his first collegiate action coming against Notre Dame. Lewan made his first career start against Bowling Green and would go on to start nine games the rest of the season. His strong performance earned him a spot on CollegeFootballNews.com's Freshman All-America second team.

In 2011, Lewan started all 13 games at left tackle for Michigan. Following the season, he was named to the All-Big Ten second team by the coaches and was an honorable mention by the media. Phil Steele named Lewan to his Postseason and Midseason All-Big Ten second team.
