Singleton was named AP Big Ten Newcomer of the Year, l Big-Big Ten Freshman of the Year, FWAA Freshman All-American, and Third-team All-Big Ten.
Singleton bulked up to 228 pounds in the off-season and is expected with Kaytron Allen to be the strength of the offense again this season, with sophomore quarterback Drew Allar developing in his first year as the starter and the young wide receivers find their footing in Mike Yurcich’s offense.
