Name: Peyton O’Leary
Weight: 190 lbs.
High school: Byfield (MA) Governor’s Academy
Position: Wide receiver
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #38
Last year: I ranked O’Leary #124 and said he would redshirt (LINK). He played in one game.
TTB Rating: N/A
I was very impressed with O’Leary when he came out of high school. As a preferred walk-on, he is/was unlikely to every make a huge impact, but he’s one of the more impressive wide receiver athletes I’ve seen come to Michigan as a walk-on. Right now Michigan’s wide receiver room is stacked, but if some injuries or blowouts happen, I could see him making a little bit of a name for himself and carving out a role.
Prediction: Backup wide receiver
