If I Had My Druthers . . . Wide Receivers
|California wide receiver George Farmer|
This is the order in which I would rank the receivers Michigan has offered. Star rankings don’t matter, the likelihood of a commit doesn’t matter, etc.; these rankings are purely based on my ideal team.
1. George Farmer
Has great speed and acceleration for a good-sized kid (6’2″, 192 lbs.), high points the ball, and can run after the catch.
2. Devin Lucien
Only average speed, but runs excellent routes. Catches the ball well with his hands, has good size, and high points the ball.
3. Curt Evans
Good speed and excellent after the catch. A bit of a showboater.
4. Darius Jennings
If you want an example of highlights that are clearly doctored and sped up to make a kid look faster, check out this kid’s video. Still, he’s fast and elusive. Could play inside or outside.
5. Hakeem Flowers
Good athleticism. Not afraid to go over the middle. Doesn’t adjust well to the ball in the air, doesn’t high point the ball, catches with his body.
6. Miles Shuler
Great speed. Runs tentatively and isn’t extremely shifty.
7. Prince Holloway
Small-ish slot receiver. Not a need in this class. Reminds me Roy Roundtree with body control and elusiveness, albeit smaller.
8. Darius Patton
Small-ish slot receive type, a position that Michigan doesn’t need to recruit at this point.
9. Shane Wynn
Tiny, extremely shifty and elusive. At 5’6″ and with limited position versatility, not a need at this point.
