Gardner makes strides in classroom, too

All spring long, University of Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez has noted how dedicated a student of the game that his early-enrollee freshman quarterback Devin Gardner has turned out to be.

Apparently the Oak Park youngster is a pretty good student of ... well, academics. Gardner posted on Twitter Friday that his GPA for his first college semester was a robust 3.7.

Solid spring practice performance has put the five-star prospect securely in the quarterback equation come fall camp, but continued hard work in the classroom — both for football and for his regular course load — could have Gardner breathing down the necks of sophomores Tate Forcier (who started every game last year) and Denard Robinson (who made tremendous progress this spring).
