Wolverine Wednesday: Lands More Speed in Space or Island

If you ask any person living in Michigan in January, if they rather be in Ann Arbor or Hawaii?  I think 99% would answer, Hawaii.  

Not 2020 4 star WR Roman Wilson, he picked Ann Arbor from Honolulu, Hawaii.    He is going to take his talents on an 8 hour flight to play for Coach Gattis and Coach Harbaugh.  

You want to talk about fast?  Roman runs a laser timed 40 yard dash in 4.37 seconds.  That's crazy fast!  Combined with AJ's commitment, its been a good 10 days for the Wolverines and their WR recruiting.   Roman's offer list included the likes of  Oregon, ASU, Colorado, Hawaii, UCLA, Cal, Washington, and Wisconsin.   He had 32 catches for 812 yards and 7 TD's as a Junior. 

Roman might need to put on a few pounds as he looks a bit slight on his 6'0 175 pound frame before he sees the field in Ann Arbor.   Either way he is the type of game breaker that Coach Gattis  is looking for.  

Welcome to Ann Arbor Roman, I would recommend waiting to buy your winter coat in Ann Arbor as the weather might be a little different then your used to.  

So how many coaches want to visit Roman prior to signing day?

  • Former Michigan WR commit Kalil Branham from Columbus committed to UK yesterday.  Branham has had a strange recruitment, he committed to Michigan and then later Coach Gattis asked him to "look around".  He de-committed and really didn't get a ton of high profile offers, his other offers were from the likes of IU, EMU, UC, BC, Akron, Louisville, Kansas, etc.  

  • Michigan also has Jerry's son Brenden Rice on their WR wish list for this class.  I would also add Instate 4 Star WR Maliq Carr from Oak Park.  He is a 4 star and 6'4 230 pounds and rated as a TE by 24/7.   Right now it seems Purdue is leading in his recruitment. 

  • Michigan Basketball gets it first taste of Juwan Howard today as its the first workout for the team with its new coach.
