DJ Williamson Goes Blue

Ohio WR/Athlete DJ Williamson has pledged his word to sign with the Michigan Wolverines in the Class of 2010. Williamson, who hails from Warren Harding High School (the alma mater of Mario Manningham, among other former Wolverines), measures in at 6-1, 172lbs, and has been clocked in the 4.4 range in the 40-yard dash.

Recruiting Notes
Though Warren Harding High School is constantly fighting the reputation that its players and coaches hate Ohio State, there’s no denying that they may have a certain affinity for Michigan. Thanks to successful Wolverines who have hailed from Warren, like Carl Diggs, Prescott Burgess, and Mario Manningham, DJ Williamson was one of those Michigan Wolverines fans. When Rich Rodriguez sent word to Harding High just over a week ago that he was interested in offering DJ, it was a dream come true. However, a commitment didn’t come immediately. First, Williamson made his way up to Ann Arbor for the Michigan Junior Day, where he met with the coaches, and decided that he did indeed want to wear the winged helmet. He became the 4th commitment in Michigan’s class of 2010.

Player Notes
Though Michigan fans may say “ANOTHER receiver?!?,” my inner Lee Corso says “Not So Fast, My Friend.” Like fellow Ohioan Jerald Robinson, Williamson is a very versatile player. He has the skill set to play either on the outside or in the slot, and could even find an eventual home on the defensive side of the ball. Combine that with the fact that Jeremy Jackson may have the potential to move to pass-catching tight end down the road, and the logjam doesn’t look quite so bad. Williamson has very good change of direction skills, nice speed (10.82 100m), and good height (though he’ll likely need to add some bulk to be ready to play at the next level). He also has the ability to be a good return man in the near future.

    Any word on this LB Kinard??? Did I miss his commitment??? I’m on here everyday so I think thats tough….Any info on him though?

    I read on one of the OSU forums that they’ve sent less than 20 offers to this point, while we’ve sent 70+. They called this a “carpet bombing approach”. I could see this going both ways, 1) we’ve already researched and are targeting the best (a la texas) and the coaches know what they’re doing or 2) we’re kinda shooting fish in a barrel and taking what we get. I don’t know who the 70+ are or how they rank/look/etc and before any senior season, there’s only so much you can really know, but to finish up my rambling, what are your thoughts on this?

    Also, Kinard committed says rivals, they’ve got a free article up.
    Teammates of Bell/Touisaint from the 09 class, looks like only the michigan offer and scout doesn’t have a profile on him.
