Corley Jr. Visits Michigan, Talks Recruitment

Wyandotte (Mich.) Roosevelt 2016 wide receiver Donnie Corley Jr. discusses his visit to the Big House, his Michigan interest and more.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Donnie Corley Jr. made his way to the Big House on Saturday for Tom Lemming's photo shoot of the best prospects in the Great Lakes region.

While on his visit, the Wyandotte (Mich.) Roosevelt 2016 wide receiver said he had hoped to take in U-M football practice and see what the Maize and Blue have to offer.

"I'm just going to be looking and seeing how much they will throwing to their receivers," Corley said. "And I want to see what they really need at the receiving core."

Currently, Corley has no offers at moment, but is hearing considerable interest from Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern and Penn State. And while he hasn't received an offer from the Wolverines, he admits if they were to offer – it would "mean a lot" in his recruitment.

"It would mean a lot," Corley said on the possibility of a Michigan offer. "I actually grew up loving Michigan football."

Corely, who won wide receiver MVP at the Best of the Midwest Combine in Indianapolis last month, said his recruitment has heated since his standout performance.

"I'm just seeing if they are a little more interested in me since I won the Best of the Midwest camp," said Corley. "Right after I won a lot people have been contacted me, following me on Twitter, some different schools, so I think that it really helped."

He said he's heard some interest from Miami (Fla.), Florida State, Purdue and Mississippi State since his MVP performance. Along with Michigan, he says he would like to camp at FSU and Purdue this summer.

With his 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame, Corley says brings many intangibles to the wide receiver position.

"I'm just aggressive off the line," Corley said on his playing style. "I like blocking. Then I pretty much catch everything that comes my way."
