Wide Receivers
The need: one game breaker would be nice. but in this small upcoming class great ‘athletes' are best – and the following list is full of them.

2 (listed as a DB) Jamar Hornsby DB/WR 6'4 195 4.45 Jacksonville Sandalwood Florida. A big, fast and exceptionally talented and rangy safety/wide receiver prospect from the talent-rich Jacksonville area. Hornsby is ranked by many as the top overall prospect in the state of Florida. Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Florida and many others have offered. Lists a top 5 of Florida and Michigan (has been offered the #1 jersey), plus Georgia Tech, Georgia and USC. He will enroll in college in January.

4 Chris Bell WR/DB 6'4 205 4.50 Norfolk Granby Virginia. Lists Michigan, Miami and USC. He has offers from Penn State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Florida, LSU, Kansas, Nebraska, Michigan. As a junior Bell had five kick and interception returns for touchdowns to go along with his 10 as a wide receiver.

**new info** 5 Chris Slaughter WR 6'3 180 4,60 Fort Valley Peach County Georgia Georgia is loaded with talented wide receivers this year and Slaughter is being touted early on as one of the best of the bunch. He has a tremendous set of hands and knows how to run clean routes and get separation from the defender. A First Team Class AAA All-Stater, Slaughter has offers Georgia, Auburn, Michigan, Louisville, Houston, Ohio State, Maryland, Florida and Clemson. The sort of tall and rangy receiver that Michigan would like to land this year. Georgia was the leader, but he now says he is open – and will attend the U-M Camp.

6 (listed as a LB) Dorin Dickerson LB/RB/WR 6'2 200 4.50 Imperial West Allegheny Pennsylvania. He was the top overall performer at the PSU Nike Copmbine, with a 4.5 sec. 40, a 4.1 sec. shuttle, a 36 inch vertical jump, and 21 bench press reps of 185 lbs. As he showed at the combine, he is the consummate all-around player – he excelled at both RB and WR there. He was the Indians' top rusher with 1,036 yards on 141 carries (7.3); No. 2 receiver with 25 catches for 517 yards (20.7); and leading scorer with 21 TDs. Dickerson also was a crackerjack LB and he played QB at times. After the combine he said his preferred college position was WR, and that his top five are U-M (recruiting the hardest), Florida, Pitt, then PSU and OSU. He plans to visit U-M over the summer.

7 Andrey Baskin WR 6'4 205 4.50 Camden Woodrow Wilson New Jersey. As a junior Baskin had 31 receptions and 8 touchdowns His top four are Michigan, Iowa, USC and Penn State … U-M and USC may lead. Teammate of DB Antwine Perez, who also has a U-M offer.

**new info** 10 David Ausberry WR/TE 6'5 215 4.50 Lemore California. Underrated even at #10, he has a great combination of size and speed, together with a 37 inch vertical. Had 35 receptions for about 800 yards as a junior. Favors USC, Ohio State and Nebraska (offer), U-M (offer). Even though USC leads, remember him as a U-M recruit – there are some U-M connections there. He had a great Stanford Nike Combine, but looked like a TE.

70 (listed as a DB) Brandon Caleb DB/WR 6'1 192 4.50 Fork Union Military Academy Virginia. Brandon plays for one of the more talent-laden prep schools in the nation (think Chris Perry and Eddie George). He is being recruited as both a WR and DB. As a junior he caught 15 passes for 485 yards and six touchdowns. He camped at Michigan last summer and plans on returning this year. He has offers from Syracuse, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Virginia Tech, Michigan State, Purdue.

Tight Ends
The need: one

33 (listed as a LB) Dedrick Epps LB/TE/DE 6'4 227 Richmond Huguenot Virginia. From the same program that sent David Terrell to Michigan. As a junior he posted 73 tackles, 25 assists, four fumble recoveries and three interceptions. On offense, he had 15 catches for 233 yards and three touchdowns. He has been offered by Michigan, Penn State and Miami. He plans on camping at Michigan, where he may commit – but Miami is coming on strong for him as well.
