In the wake of the George Campbell committment I've been thinking about the prospect of having Drake Harris and Campbell on the field together. It brought back memories of past Michigan teams with two star receivers and I thought I would put a list together of them so we could debate, discuss, and rank them.
Before we get to the list, let's offer the obvious qualificiations. It will be YEARS before the two of these players step on the field together so a lot can change between now and then (remember the Ricardo Miller hype). We also have some very solid receivers between now and then that could turn into a very fine starting pair. But let's get over-excited in advance anyway about the Harris-Campbell duo on the outside.....
Here are the famous ones I came up with:
- Manningham - Arrington
- Edwards - Avant
- Terrell - Walker
- Toomer - Hayes
- Howard - Alexander
- McMurtry - Calloway
Debate & discuss! Did I miss anyone?
I think Terrell-Walker are the closest comparison to Harris-Campbell given their size and recruiting profile. I was a huge fan of McMurty-Calloway since that was the era of players I saw play when I was a kid and Calloway went on to such a long NFL career, though their stats don't stack up against the rest of the list.
