Hawkins, a teammate of fellow Michigan signee Ron Johnson, Jr., committed to Michigan in July 2015, choosing the Wolverines over the likes of Auburn, Florida, and Ohio State, among others. It was a very solid offer list for a guy who doesn’t show elite athleticism. Hawkins played some running back, wide receiver, and safety in high school, and he enters college with a chance to play wideout or in the secondary. Michigan is lacking depth at the safety position, but the plan is to start out on offense.
There were rumors floating around that Hawkins might have trouble qualifying to get into Michigan for the fall, so that may be something to watch. If everything works out, though, he will have a tough time working his way up the depth chart this season with everyone returning, including some pretty good starters. There are also four other potential receivers in the freshman class, including early enrollee Ahmir Mitchell. As perhaps the least athletic of the bunch, Hawkins looks to more of a guy who will take a year to redshirt so he can work on all the little things to either become a possession receiver or switch to defense.
