Countess emerged as a valuable part of Michigan's defense during the latter portion of the 2011 season -- he appeared in all 12 games, but started each of the final six. Countess finished the season with 44 tackles and also broke up six passes. He will use 2012 as a redshirt season and return as a redshirt sophomore in 2013.
