Elder: UM WR Group One of Nation's Best

Read on to see what defensive back Corn Elder was saying following Saturday's practice.

On the depth chart situation at the return positions…

“I’m not sure what the depth chart is, but there have been different guys working at returner – me, Stacy [Coley], Malcolm [Lewis], Braxton [Berrios], Sam Bruce and Ahmmon [Richards] – all of us, we’re just working on catching punts and catching kicks. I’m not sure who’s going to be the starting returner, but I know whoever is out there will make plays.”

On the potential impact of the freshmen in the mix to return – Sam Bruce, Ahmmon Richards and Malek Young…

“Definitely. They’re all explosive, fast. On the defensive side of the ball and offense and special teams, I think all three can make an immediate impact.”

On the younger receivers and his overall impressions of them…

“I’ve definitely covered a lot of them in one-on-ones or in team periods. They all show different looks. They’re getting better throughout camp. Sam [Bruce] has gotten a lot better from when he first got here. Ahmmon [Richards], Dayall [Harris]…they’re all just doing a great job.”

On his impressions on the receiving group as a whole…

“One of the best in the country, definitely. They all bring a different look to the table. They’re all fast, can catch, good in space, once they get the ball in their hands, they’re deadly to stop. I’m excited to watch them play this year. I think we have a great receiving corps.”
