Peoples-Jones Talks Michigan

Detroit Cass Tech 2017 WR Donovan Peoples-Jones talks the latest with Michigan and more.

Wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones is still a freshman at Detroit Cass Tech, and earlier this month landed his first big time offer from Ohio State.

Not to be outdone done by their main rivals, Michigan has also shown some increased interest in the Motor City standout when they stopped by his school last week for a visit.

"I was in school and they stopped by for a minute," Peoples-Jones said. "We didn't talk too much. But what they did say – I liked."

"I'm liking them," Peoples-Jones said on the Wolverines. "My interest has definitely accumulated over time. Every time I visit there they introduce with something else to like. They give me another reason to want to consider them more."

With consistent interest shown by the Michigan coaching staff, Peoples-Jones has taken notice, and if asked, he said he would "love" to camp in Ann Arbor this June.

"I would love too," Peoples-Jones said. "If Coach Crowell tells me to go, I would love to go camp at Michigan. I haven't really been up there for a camp or anything. I have just been or basketball games and spring practices."

What would he like to do differently on his next visit to campus?

"I know for fact I want to ask them questions about their previous history," Peoples-Jones said. "First priority, is I want to be able to get into their receiver meetings and see how they do everything around there. That's what I want the next time I visit."

In the meantime, Peoples-Jones says he is out to prove he is worth all the attention he is receiving as he heads into his sophomore season at Cass.

"I know a lot of people are going to come after me since I got this Ohio State offer," Peoples-Jones said. "So I am just going to have to back it up and prove that I am worthy of it. Each practice day I have to work hard and the whole team has to work hard, we're trying to get another state championship. I am just working hard right now focusing in on that goal."
