Public Service Announcement: Don’t try and arm tackle Michigan’s Jabrill Peppers. In the first quarter of Michigan vs. Rutgers, Peppers fielded a Rutgers punt from the 45-yard line. Peppers then proceeded to return it, and he showed off exactly why he was the No. 1 ATH in the class of 2014 as a recruit in high school.
Let’s take into account that Peppers was able to dodge and juke a total of five Rutgers tacklers, and still maintained to rapidly accelerate up the field. Unfortunately for Michigan fans, the touchdown was called back for a block in the back by Michigan. Still, it’s a pretty amazing play from Peppers here, who is a frightening player to have to defend on special teams. For instance, he can do insane things like this:
