Like light, only faster.
Not great but not terrible.
AFAIK, we didn't but I think Notre Dame knew that Moe Ways was a Michigan lock and ND's pursuit would be futile.
An offer might have intrigued Ways but it likely wouldn't have delayed the inevitable commitment to Michigan.

Maurice Ways #9
Detroit Country Day
6'4 185 lbs WR
Class of 2014
I disagree with 247's rating of his speed. He's faster than he's being given credit for imo.
For instance, look at how 247Sports rated Shane's arm strength.
Not sure which analyst(s) made that rating but I would say that it's not accurate.
Most NFL QBs cannot throw beyond 70 yards. Morris can throw 80+ yard bombs as well as glove-ripping bullets as a high schooler. Of course, arm strength alone is no guarantee of success but that's besides the point.
All that matters is the coaches opinion ... and they seem to be evaluating well thus far. This seaosn will really start to show us insight into their recruiting picks IMO.
I think i have to agree with you Frank. I don't see a 6 for speed when I watch the highlight tapes of Ways.
They have Harris as an 8. I'd move both Harris+Ways up one. So a 9 for Harris and 7 for Ways.
They seem to be pretty conservative with those ratings as a whole. I think I've seen one or two guys receive a 10 in any category. Not necessarily a bad thing. I think his speed will be just fine. And 6'4" makes up for a lot of that anyway.
Welcome Mr. Ways!
okay lets see what happens with KJ Williams now eh...
really hope they take him
Me too. Love Williams' game.
Taco Charlton had 2 10's. Size and frame. Wiltfong said time and again that Charlton had the look of a future NFLer.
He's a grown ass man! He could be one of those difference makers up front for Michigan that they need.

Welcome Maurice! Very excited about this pickup!
Congrats to Mr Ways
As far as his speed goes I do not see him having a lack of speed. He could improve however. If it is true he has only played 2 years of football I am sure all his ratings will only improve.
Back to speed though, I wonder what Jerry Rice would of rated for speed? Any guesses before you look up his 40 time?
Don't know his 40 time, but I know it was slow. He had the passion and desire unmatched by most. He wanted to be the best and put the work in to accomplish it. Add in the fact he played with great QB's, was never really hurt, and also played in the West Coast Offense by the late great Walsh.
