WATCH: Freshman Feature Episode 2 - Donovan Edwards

Breaking down the film, recruitment, scouting, projection, and more for the 4-star RB

Today, we’re taking a look at the No. 2 player overall from the 2021 recruiting class for the Michigan Wolverines, running back Donovan Edwards. If you’re new here, in this video series, I break down each aspect of his recruitment, scouting, comparison, stats, and everything else you need to know about Edwards heading into the 2021 season.

For Edwards, he’s a guy without any real deficiencies in his game. He has solid speed, the patience and vision to run effectively between the tackles. Edwards can truck a defender in his way, or put his foot in the ground and bounce it outside.

While he may not be the fastest or most elusive, there’s a reason he’s ranked the top five running back in the nation to all of 247Sports, Rivals and ESPN. It’s because he does everything well. He brings an extremely high floor as a college-ready running back already, and should see significant time as a true freshman.

Join me tonight at 8:30 p.m. EST on the Maize n Brew YouTube channel to go through his film and any questions you may have about his game.
