TTB Rating:

O’Leary, a standout lacrosse player, chose to commit to the Wolverines as a preferred walk-on football player. His 2019 junior season saw him catch 17 passes for 403 yards and 5 touchdowns. Unfortunately, he was unable to play a season in 2020 due to the pandemic.

You can watch O’Leary’s highlights below, and they’re pretty impressive. He’s a long, lanky receiver who moves really well. I would not be surprised at all if he eventually factors into the rotation at Michigan, as we’ve seen less talented walk-on receivers (Jake McCurry, Nate Schoenle, etc.) get on the field. A walk-on receiver is unlikely to contribute as a freshman, but if O’Leary can add a little weight, maintain his speed, and improve his route-running, he could be a valuable member of the team.
