New Michigan Man!: 4* WR Drake Harris

Michigan has been in need of a top wide receiver for quite awhile. Ever since Braylon Edwards took off the maize and blue, they\’ve lacked that superstar talent. Well, they took their biggest step towards bringing back that guy with the addition of their top receiver target and one of the top players in the 2014 class, with the commitment of 4* WR Drake Harris!

One of the most sought after recruits in the country, WR Drake Harris has offers from just about every team. He is a tall, fast receiver that can stretch the field and be the #1 receiver in any program. Most thought the recruitment for him was over early when he decided to commit to Michigan State with the chance to play both football and basketball. However, he realized that football was his future so he opened up his recruitment to \”bigger\” football schools (Sorry Sparty lol). That was perfect for Michigan and they didn\’t waste time to take advantage of the decision. Only 33 days after his decomittment, Harris has given his pledge to Brady Hoke and Team 135.

As for the Rest of the Class

With 5 commitments and (maybe) their #1 target now on board, Michigan will look to make even more moves with top targets. They have 11-15 spots, depending on retention, which means they will be very selective in commitments and handing out offers. Hoke and staff have done a phenomenal job when players get on campus, including the #1 and #2 recruits in the country (according to Rivals), Da\’Shawn Hand and Jabrill Peppers.

Thanks to Harris, some other recruits may look to pull the trigger on a commitment since the numbers game could come into play and they could end up on the outside, looking in. Don\’t expect Hoke to \”push\” many for a commitment, however.
