2016 FOOTBALL RECRUITING ISSUE ting a playmaker. They're getting a big, physical receiver who can come in right away and contribute. They're getting somebody who if they need some help on defense first, he can help out on de- fense. He could be a safety pretty quick for them. "With his size, he has a college-ready body. That's not always the case with guys out of high school. I think he's ready to compete physically. He's going to enroll early, so if he can get into the playbook and is ready to compete in the spring, who knows? But they're getting a kid with a very high ceiling." • National Recruiting Analyst Mike Farrell: "I think he's a high-level contributor and a guy who's on NFL radars. I think he's a four-year, developmental kind of guy. I don't see him as a three-and-out kind of player. He will get a lot better every year, and his moneymaking year will be his senior year. "If he's not the top wide receiver as a junior, he'll be a No. 2 on the football team. He might not be an elite down- field threat, but I think he could come out with a third- or fourth-round grade. That's what I see as a fortune teller." • Tom Lemming of Prep Football Re- port: "He probably has the most tal- ent of all Michigan's incoming wide re- ceivers. He's a legit, potential five-star guy. He's not there yet, but he's got the height, the speed, the length. "He had a better year on defense this year than he did on offense. I think he could eventually end up on defense — though I know he doesn't want to hear it. He was named all-South Jersey on defense, not offense."
