Peoples-Jones Updates Recruitment

Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech 2017 WR Donovan Peoples-Jones talks upcoming visits, his thoughts on Michigan and more.

BELLEVILLE, Mich. -- Donovan Peoples-Jones' recruitment has been red hot lately, as he's continues to rack up top offers from around the country.

On Saturday, however, he wasn't focused on his recruitment, but rather competing against some of the best players in college and high school from the metro Detroit area at nearby Belleville (Mich.) High.

"Just coming out here working on routes," said Peoples-Jones, who stars at Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech. "It's a privilege to have these college guys come back. Just the combined knowledge of them, I'm just coming here to get better.

"I'm just out here having fun. I wanted to go against [Jourdan Lewis]. He's an extremely good corner. He's real quick. [Damon Webb], going back to our high school battles. I'm just looking to learn from anyone I can."

Recruitment Update

Peoples-Jones, who holds double digit offers, says he's got a full visit plan worked for this summer.

"I'm know I'm going to USC for sure," he said on his upcoming visits. "If I'm headed out that way, I'm probably headed to Stanford too. I know I got Florida and Florida State. And I know we'll probably hit up some other schools along the route."

What will he be looking for specifically on those visits?

"I got to talk with the receiver coach," he said. "I got to have a good relationship with the receiver coach. Outside of academics and environment, I got to be real close with the receiver coach. I want somebody who is going to develop me into the best that I can. I want to learn from the best. I want to learn form the best people."

The latest with Michigan

Peoples-Jones says he plans on visiting Michigan next month for junior day.

"Just getting up there and hanging out around Michigan, Ann Arbor," he said on his next visit to campus. "Just experience it all that I can. But if it's not that many people, and a little more intimate between me and the coaches, I just look forward to learning as much as I can."

And his relationship with the Wolverines has continued to climb.

"It's a good relationship," he said of Michigan. "They're an in-state school. They're always going to push it to the end. Going to Cass Tech, they once had a Michigan pipeline. They are always going to be there. I'm going to them. I'm just eager to get back up there."

His relationship with U-M wide receivers coach Jedd Fisch has also continued to grow for the better, Peoples-Jones said.

"It's good and it's definitely building," he said of Fisch. "He's a great guy. I like talking to him. I just can't wait to learn from him."
