Michael Book (b. Nov. 10, 2001) is a walk-on linebacker from Liberty High School in Kansas City, Missouri, who likely will redshirt in 2020 before contributing on scout or special teams.

A three-year letter-winner for the Bluejays under head coach Chad Frigon, Book was a two-time all-conference performer, while he also earned all-district honors.

He helped Liberty to earn a conference championship and a district runner-up finish.

A two-time academic all-state honoree, Book also lettered in track for four years, earning two first-team all-conference honors and a second-team accolade.

His father, Tim Book, played football at Buena Vista University.
