The Michigan Wolverines defense experienced a dramatic turnaround in the 2011 season under Brady Hoke and Greg Mattison, and one of the key players in that turnaround was safety Jordan Kovacs. Kovacs finished second on the team in tackles with 75 (eight for a loss) and added four sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception. According to Mattison, Kovacs has kept up that level of play heading into the 2012 season, tabbing him as the defensive star of camp.
"There's one that's always consistent and that's No. 32," Mattison said Friday after practice. "That young man has had a tremendous camp. You talk about consistency, if you graded every play I would like to see that grade because he's really working hard and he's been the most consistent.

A stellar senior season would be a perfect cap to a career that began with Kovacs walking on at Michigan.
