South Florida Satellite Recap (Part 1)

The skill position talent was impressive during the morning session of the University of South Florida’s one day camp. As one of the 10 stops on Michigan’s satellite camp tour, the entire Wolverine coaching staff was present. The talent on hand definitely didn’t disappoint.

Jim Harbaugh was at in again Saturday morning.  Michigan’s headman took to the field to participate in warmup drills after addressing the youngsters in attendance at the University of South Florida’s first camp session of the day.  After getting in a few sprints to loosen up, the competition began.  That’s when a number of notable talents started shining brightly.

The top performer of the day was 2017 Tampa (Fla.) Tech wide receiver Daquon Green. The talented youngster was without a peer during one-on-ones with one exception. 2016 Gibsonton (Fla.) East Bay cornerback K.J. Sails was the only defensive back Scout.com witnessed win a rep versus Green.  The coaching staffs from both Michigan and USF took note, and didn’t waste the opportunity to show Sails some attention.

Another notable attendee was 2017 Tampa (Fla.) Catholic tight end Tre McKitty.  The 6-4 235-pounder was one of the most physically imposing prospects present. Once he took the field his ability to move around like a youngster 30 lbs. lighter was obvious to everyone watching.  NCAA rules prohibited the Michigan coaching staff from offering him on the spot, but don’t be surprised if the Sunshine State star picks up one tomorrow.

Some of the other standouts on the day were 2017 Tampa Catholic DB Devan Barrett, 2017 Tampa Hillsborough DL Zach Carter, 2016 Henderson (Nev.) Green Valley WR Isaiah Macklin, 2019 Tamp Gaither quarterback Marwan Gilmore, and 2017 Tampa Gaither RB Alex Rodriguez.

The morning session featured over 150 prospects, and the afternoon session is slated to be quadruple that.  Look for full coverage from The Michigan Insider throughout the day and evening.

Also be on the lookout from coverage from Michigan’s satellite camp in Miami at the Dolphins training facility.  The event is set to take place from 7:00-9:30 PM. Estimates for the number of attendees isn’t available since the event is still open to walk-ups.
