2016 FOOTBALL RECRUITING ISSUE • Southeast Recruiting Analyst Rob Cassidy: "He's got good football speed, and he looks plenty fast on tape. I don't know if he's go- ing to be a guy who stands out as the fastest guy in the Big Ten, but he's got enough speed to make things hap- pen in space once h e c a t c h e s t h e ball. He's got some good length, but I don't think he's ever going to lead Michigan in receptions or yards. He'll need to be a better route runner, but I think he can definitely contribute in the Big Ten sometime down the road. " • Tom Lemming Of Prep Football Report: "I like that name. He was a kid in Orlando that people were point- ing me to when I went to see [a few other guys]. Everybody kept point- ing to Eddie McDoom — I thought it might even be like a fake name. Then you watch him, and he's another guy that can stretch the defense. They're bringing in some really good wide r e c e i v e r s . [ Fe l - low U-M signee Dylan] Crawford's not a real physi- cal guy but a guy who can run, and McDoom's the same way. Then [Brad] Hawkins is a real physical guy, and I think [Ahmir] Mitchell could be both. McDoom is a very reliable, quick- twitch athlete who can run. He's got good hands, and he can stretch the defense." RIVALS.COM'S ROB CASSIDY ON MCDOOM "He'll need to be a better route runner, but I think he can defi- nitely contribute in the Big Ten sometime down the road."
