ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The Michigan offense is looking for people to step up and make plays, especially at the wide receiver position.

U-M head coach Jim Harbaugh could find the solutions to his problems at the most unlikely of sources. Two freshman wide receivers in Grant Perry and Drake Harris.

Redshirt junior receiver Jehu Chesson is one of the receivers that is looking to turn his experience into success on the football field this season. Chesson spoke with the media on Friday after practice and spoke about the receiver position.

“We have high expectations for everyone that plays at the receiver position,” Chesson said. “The expectation within the position, it doesn’t matter who is playing it you have to fill the shoes, you have to fill the role of whatever you’re doing on the field. If they’re not ready to play, they can’t play. Standing here before you today that we have very talented guys, very talented young guys that’s eager to learn and are flying around the field. I expect to see them out on the field.”

One young player in particular that has caught Chesson’s eyes is Harris. Spending the past two seasons nurturing injuries, Harbaugh himself told reporters that Harris is healthy and will see playing time on Thursday against Utah.

“He’s made tremendous plays,” Chesson said. “He runs his routes crisp, he’s an unbelievable jumper. He hooped a little bit in high school I believe, a really good vertical. He can really go up there and get the ball. He tries hard, man, he really does. He tries hard and I learn a lot of things from him, too. You just gotta feed off each other, feed off each other’s energy and get it done as improvements.”
