Louisiana slot receiver Drew Dileo has committed to the University of Michigan. I wrote a scouting report on Dileo at the end of March, so I won’t rehash what I already said there.
However, in the meantime, Dileo had picked up offers from Stanford, Rice, Tulane, Virginia, and Northwestern.
In regards to the rest of the class, Rich Rodriguez and Co. have to be nearing the end of their wide receiver recruiting. This gives Michigan six potential wide receivers in the class of 2010, which is an astronomical number, especially considering that the class currently should hold only about 19 players. However, Michigan has recently sent out offers to outside wide receivers such as Andrew Carswell and Adrian Coxson, so I wouldn’t bet any considerable amount of money that Michigan is done recruiting WRs.
A quick run-through of the six current commits:
1. Jeremy Jackson – At 6’4″, he’s destined for outside WR . . . or TE. However, he would probably take his talents elsewhere if the coaches put him at TE, so he’s either a WR or gone.
2. Ricardo Miller – At 6’2″ and 205 lbs., I think Miller is headed for outside WR. There’s been some talk that he could move to tight end, but I just don’t see it.
3. Jerald Robinson – He’s 6’2″ and 175 lbs. but could play safety. I honestly think there’s a very good chance he’ll end up on defense . . . or he’ll decommit, much like Dewayne Peace last year.
4. D.J. Williamson – Williamson is 6’1″ and 172 lbs. He could play outside or in the slot. He could potentially add depth at CB, too, but he won’t make an impact there. I think Williamson is the most likely to decommit of the aforementioned group.
5. Tony Drake – Drake is headed for slot or running back. He reminds me of Odoms, which makes me think he’ll be a slot.
6. Drew Dileo – Dileo has good hands and normally I’d say he’s headed for slot receiver. However, with the increasing number of wide receivers in this class, maybe the coaching staff is liking his potential at RB more and more. That’s pure speculation and I doubt its voracity, but it’s possible. I think his biggest contribution will be as a kick/punt returner.
