Unlikely. Best bet would probably be taking Williams as a S or ATH.
Jeeze, gotta feel bad for the one who doesn't get in on this. I know some people were speculating KJ could be the next commitment. With Ways scheduled to visit MSU this weekend, do the coaches give KJ one last chance? I was hoping he'd be in the class.
With this offer is it pretty safe to assume that Brady's scholarship will be a grayshirt? I know they dont play the same positions but seems like theres a pretty big squeeze for numbers right now.
Same, wish they could take both. I hope Williams commits and they then let Ways.
I have a question. Is there any highlight tape of Dukes senior season?
Not sure how good the teams are that his High School plays, but I loves Ways' tape. Lengthy receiver with some speed.
I'd say Harris, Ways, and Scott. Then call it a day.

I got $$ that Ways does not visit EL this weekend. You want some of this,... "little brother".

#Michigan watched Maurice Ways work out today, offered him tonight. Will visit #MichiganState on Saturday still
I think this might be senior year. The clips on youtube are all junior year.
Watched Ways clips then Dukes... it's like night and day. Ways >>> Dukes.
Meh, I can see how it looks that way, but I would necessarily compare just the two tapes as they focus on different things. Dukes tape looked more like normal game tape as opposed to just highlights. More importantly most of Dukes tape was either him blocking or going with short to intermediate routes whereas Ways had more throws downfield (and thus more splash/wow plays). Ways also has the luxury of playing with a BCS-AQ conference QB in Wiegers, Dukes QB didnt look impressive. Ways certainly looks to have the higher upside between the two though.
Dukes team didnt pass very often. It will be short if there is one.
That was published on Oct. 5th to ESPN. So it must be JR year.
I also think they could've waited. But I'm glad that when they decide to offer, they do it. Also, as far as I can tell, Michigan doesn't do the commitable/non-commitable offer thing and that's another positive.
You're right. I should have noticed that.
I love the offer and its potential effects on other recruits at the position.It could force KJ's hand.I would take those three and wait for Scott or Holmes
I'm sorry guys, I just don't see it with Dukes. Jeremy Jackson at best. Will make his way as a good blocker and redzone weapon. Really hope I'm wrong.
Sounds like we are only taking 3 total. Drake, Ways or Williams, and waiting for Scott.
Agree with this. He's big and tall for the redzone, and blocking, maybe a possession style receiver at times, but that seems about it.
A reliable, big-bodied WR, that can move the chains, attack the ball in the air, be a redzone weapon and block well is a very valuable player and vital to a pro-style offense.
I hope he can be that
WOW...that tape of Dukes looks unspectacular, unexciting and dull
are there any negatives...?
Dukes senior year stats- 31 recepts for 553yards and 9 TDs.
Again, his team did not throw the ball much at all....iirc, there was 1 game where they had 1 pass attempt and it was a TD to Dukes......1 pass all game!!
I'm gonna take the wait and see approach on this one. I couldnt find senior film other than a 1 play clip.
I am very happy Ways was offered. I hope he commits soon.
Quick question. Has Cory Holmes visited UM yet? I can't remember.
