With all of the great 4* and 5* receivers and tight ends on this team, yesterday our top 4 receivers were as follows:
1) Sean McKeon: 3* tight end, our third best TE recruit in 2016. Chose us over BC and Syracuse. Many did not understand the logic of this Michigan offer when he committed
2) Zach Gentry: One of the top 10 QB recruits in the nation 3 years ago, decided to believe in our coaching staff and his team at Michigan, and busted his ass to learn a new position to benefit of the team.
3) Grant Perry: 3* receiver, decommitted from Northwestern to attend. Despite great high school stats, with his smaller size, was an afterthought as Alex Malzone’s teammate during Harbaugh’s first recruiting class.
4) Nate Schoenle: Walk on from Ann Arbor Gabriel Richard. Only scholarship offer was from Division 2 Hillsdale College. Grew up loving Michigan, and wanted to give it his best shot.
I know stars mean something in recruiting – the data proves it. But so does hard work, development, character and heart. Great work by these players to silence the doubters, earn their time, and make a huge impact.
