Name: Je’Ron Stokes
Weight: 181 lbs.
High School: Northeast High School in Philadelphia, PA
Position: Wide receiver
Jersey Number: #6
Prediction for 2009: Limited playing time at wide receiver
Stokes was a deadline commitment to Michigan and one of the Wolverines’ top few recruits. He’s behind several upperclassmen at the start of fall camp, but with Greg Mathews and Laterryal Savoy graduating after this year, Stokes should get some reps, if only to prepare him for a larger role in 2010. He has garnered some comparisons to Mario Manningham, which would obviously be a big plus; he’s different than any other receiver we have on the roster in that he has the speed and cutting ability to run those deep ins and make something happen. But it remains to be seen whether that will be a part of Rodriguez’s game planning with such young quarterbacks throwing the ball.
