A prospect to watch in the years to come is Springfield (Ohio.) freshman cornerback Moses Douglass. This talented youngster has already landed several offers and is starting to hear from North Carolina, Florida State and Notre Dame now.
The six-foot, 175-pound Douglass competed at Michigan’s satellite camp this past week in Ohio and showed why he will be on the top prospects in the Midwest coming up. However, the Wolverines have yet to offer him, but is a program he’s very intrigued with for a number of reasons.
“For sure (I’m interested),” Douglass told The Michigan Insider. “They are in the Big Ten Jabrill Peppers… he’s nice and I always think about them plus they are signing with Jordan.”
“I want to play like (Jabrill Peppers) for sure. He is ferocious and he’s like a little big version of Tyrann Matheiu.”
When also looking at the Maize and Blue program, Douglass knows there will be a familiar face going in his sophomore teammate Leonard Taylor, which is definitely big.
“That will be a huge factor because I want to play with someone like him,” said Douglass.
Moving forward, Douglass wants to visit Ann Arbor in the future and is open to experiencing his recruiting process fully. Still, growing up as a Kentucky legacy, most might assume he cherished the Wildcats, but instead liked two of the biggest rivals in college football.
“I grew up a fan of both Ohio State and Michigan, so it is kind of weird,” said Douglass.
His father, Maurice Douglass, was a standout defensive back for Kentucky in the mid-1980s to eventually go on to a long NFL career. One of the players he played with during his NFL tenure was Jim Harbaugh, a person the younger Douglass highly respects and has only heard great things about.
“He’s about to bring Michigan to become one of the top schools in the nation,” said Douglass. “He’s got that defense coming back up plus he played with my dad, so I got all good thoughts about him. I think that was in the 80’s and early 90’s. He says stuff like to me like that (Jim Harbaugh) is going to get Michigan back going. I think this year they are going to beat Ohio State. They got a big chance.”
