Michigan signed arguably its best ever wide receiver class during the last cycle. With the limited amount of scholarships in the 2018 class available, they will look to be very selective, especially at the wide out position. One of the early targets the Wolverines have been keeping tabs on is New Orleans (La.) McDonogh 35 junior wide receiver Lawrence Keys III and recently took it a step further by offering the Bayou standout.
“I was excited when I found out the news (about the Michigan offer),” Keys told The Michigan Insider. “(It means) a lot because it's a Division 1 school and I'm blessed to get an opportunity to play for Michigan.”
The shifty and dynamic 5-foot-11, 168-pound wide out is still learning about the Wolverine program, but knows all about their headman and his impressive pedigree.
“Never really figured out much about Michigan yet, but I like that (Head) Coach (Jim) Harbaugh is back and they throw the ball a lot,” said Keys. “I think Coach Harbaugh is a great coach and he's someone to actually play under because he has experienced the game already and he knows what it's like to get there to the next level.”
As far as the distance factor goes, Keys doesn’t see that being an issue at all and looks forward to getting up to Ann Arbor.
“I am interested,” said Keys. “I just want to get up there to see how it's like in Michigan. I just want to see how it feels on campus and I don't know when yet (I’ll visit).”
Keys currently has no favorites in his recruitment or any upcoming visits planned
