Peoples-Jones: Will Wait to Take Visits

Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech 2017 WR Donovan Peoples-Jones talks updates his recruitment and more.

DETROIT – Donovan Peoples-Jones didn’t have a huge game statistically, however, still played a big enough role to help Detroit Cass Tech defeat Southfield (Mich.) 27-0 on Saturday, in host Wayne State’s Prep Kickoff Classic.

“The big part of today was being able to come out with the win,” said Peoples-Jones, who finished with two catches for 58 yards. “We did what our coaches wanted us to do. I think we have a lot of things to work on. Mentally and physically I have a lot of things to work on and go back and fix this week, so we can play to our best next week.”

Now looked on as an offensive leader at Cass, Peoples-Jones knows he’ll have to play bigger if he wants to win his ultimate goal of a state championship in this season. During the game on Saturday, he fumbled and had a key drop that could’ve led to score late in the game.

“I’m just trying to stay humble and work hard,” he said. “I’m going to continue to do my best, whatever I need to do for the team.”

A far as recruiting, Peoples-Jones made news by saying he will no longer take any visits during his junior season.

“Not during the season,” Peoples-Jones said, when asked about his upcoming visit schedule. “I want to wait until after the season.”

| Adding: “Right now my focus is getting a state championship.”

Currently, Peoples-Jones holds offers from Michigan. Michigan State and Ohio State among others, however, he says nonone school in particular is standing out.

“I talk to a lot of schools a little bit here and there,” he said. “Like I said, I’m just focused on winning a state championship.”

While he didn’t say much about Michigan, he did note his relationship with U-M’s coaching staff is “building.”

“I talked to Coach Harbaugh, Coach Fisch, Coach Wheatley, pretty much the whole coaching staff,” he said.

And when Michigan plays at Utah on Sept. 3, Peoples-Jones admits he’lll be locked in watching on television.

“Yeah, I’ll be watching,” he said. “ I just want to see them bounce back with a terrific season.”
