Peoples-Jones: Harbaugh 'Good' For U-M

Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech 2017 WR Donovan Peoples-Jones discussed Jim Harbaugh's hire and more.

Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech has always been a recruiting network for the Michigan football program. Year in and year out the program produces multiple Division I student-athletes, and 2017 wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones is no exception to the rule. And with U-M’s recent hire of Jim Harbaugh, it’s only fitting to get the thoughts of the super sophomore on the hire.

“He’ll be real good for the program,” Peoples-Jones said, who is rated a four-star prospect. “I know they were looking for a little bit of a turnaround. I think he’ll be there and come in and turn things around successfully.”

However, Peoples-Jones was quick to remind that he has always been interest in the Wolverines.

“I have always been interested,” Peoples-Jones said. “Nothing has changed.”

With Harbagh now in the fold, Peoples-Jones says his next plan is to get on campus to get to know the new head man.

“I just want to see his whole plan of action,” Peoples-Jones said. “See how he is going to go about rebuilding the program. Just be there every step along the way. See what happens.”

Currently, Peoples-Jones holds offers from LSU, Ohio State and Miami (Fla.) among others. He also noted Michigan State and Notre Dame are the teams showing him the most interest. And despite no offer from Michigan, he admitted a U-M offer would be pretty special.

“That would just be amazing,” Peoples-Jopnes said on a possible offer from U-M. “From a coach from the NFL and a team that I like the San Francisco 49ers, that would just be great.”
