12/16/2012 - Michigan coach Brady Hoke has suspended cornerback J.T. Floyd, punter Will Hagerup and linebacker Brandin Hawthorne for a violation of team rules. Hoke says in an announcement Sunday that the three players will not travel with the 19th-ranked Wolverines for the Outback Bowl against No. 11 South Carolina because each of them used poor judgment. He didn't specify which team rules were broken. Floyd is a starting cornerback and Hagerup is the team's top punter. Hawthorne is a backup linebacker. Hoke says it's an honor to play football for the University of Michigan and there are high standards and expectations for everyone that represents the program. - AP Sports

08/03/2012 - Top-five Michigan prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 5. CB J.T. Floyd...Although he was a safety all through high school, Floyd moved to cornerback soon after arriving in Ann Arbor and has started there since his freshman season. Although his first few seasons had several bumps, he proved to be one of the most valuable defenders for the Wolverines last season. Floyd was a three-star defensive back recruit out of high school in South Carolina, choosing to go north to Michigan over offers from Georgia Tech, Tennessee and NC State. After redshirting in 2008, he started a pair of games in 2009 followed by eight starts as a sophomore. Floyd became a full-time starter at cornerback last season as a junior, starting 12 games and finishing with 48 tackles and a team-best two interceptions. Listed at 6-0 and 185 pounds, he has a tall, lanky frame with good length to get his hands on receivers and make plays on the ball (13 career pass break-ups). Floyd has a physical demeanor for the position and doesn't shy from attacking the run, but needs to show better bend and stay close to the ground in his drops in order to quickly redirect his momentum. Based on his first few seasons at Michigan, he was an afterthought to be a pro prospect, but Floyd really came into his own as a junior and more is expected in 2012. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/03/2012 - Scouting the Michigan pass defense: The Wolverines had some problems in the secondary in the season finale against Ohio State and will spend their month of preparation before the Sugar Bowl trying to shore up this unit before it faces Virginia Tech. Hoke is looking for more "disciplined play" from his defensive backfield. CB J.T Floyd will need to lead the effort since he leads the team with eight pass breakups and a pair of interceptions. The pressure up front will be led by DE Craig Roh who had four sacks this season. - The Sports Xchange
