2009 Countdown: #45 Je’Ron Stokes

2009 Countdown: #45 Je’Ron Stokes


August 12, 2009

Name: Je’Ron Stokes
Height: 6’0″
Weight: 181 lbs.
High School: Northeast High School in Philadelphia, PA
Position: Wide receiver
Class: Freshman
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.

    Do you think he will be a factor in the return game?

    I do not think Stokes will be a factor in the return game. I think we have better returners, and with last year's fumblitis, I think they'll try to entrust the return game to veterans.

    I got the pic from Rivals. I should probably source that, shouldn't I?
