Mark Dell Gets a Visit from Michigan

Wide receiver Mark Dell of Harrison High School in Farmington Hills, Mich., is getting a lot of attention lately. A visitor from Michigan recently stopped by his school, and that visitor may give an indication of what position the Wolverines are recruiting the young star.

Wide receiver Mark Dell of Harrison High School in Farmington Hills, Mich., is one of the top prospects in a year that has an unusual amount of talent for the state of Michigan. The 6-foot-0.5, 175-pound Dell recently had some visitors stop by his school, including one from Michigan.

"Iowa came by the school, and told me they are on the verge of offering me a scholarship," Dell told Scout.com. "Wisconsin stopped by the school, and said they are very interested. Michigan came by, too, and I got to talk to Coach (Ron) English who told me they feel strongly about my abilities. After I attended the combine at Ohio State, UCLA came by the school to tell me they liked what they saw, and would be recruiting me."

GoBlueWolverine.com recently scouted Dell at the OSU Nike Combine, and had this to say:

"Mark Dell had some coaches on him about some route running, and that is an area he needs to improve on. Some of the troubles were due to the QBs and WRs not working together before today though. Dell does have the raw tools to become a very good receiver and a good route runner though. He is very quick and bursts out of his breaks allowing him to create separation. One thing he needs to improve is his release. He releases with his head down and also had some trouble against press coverage."

Dell added that he will attend camp at Michigan this summer. No offer is on the table yet for Dell, and though he is listed as a wide receiver, the visit by English, Michigan new defensive coordinator and safety coach, could be an indication that the Wolverines are looking at Dell for a defensive position.
