On a special interview episode, I’m joined by wide receiver Daylen Baldwin, who announced his commitment to Michigan as a transfer last week. Baldwin discusses his unique path to the Big Ten, the players he seeks to emulate, his takeaways from playing under Deion Sanders, how he’ll fit in Ann Arbor, contact with Josh Gattis and Jim Harbaugh, the challenge or pressure of joining a team that needs a big season and more.

From our scouting report of what he brings to the program:

Baldwin, 21, standing at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, will give Michigan someone with size, length, speed, and strength on the outside. Before Baldwin’s arrival, Michigan’s only 6-foot-1 or taller wideout with starting experience was 6-foot-3 Cornelius Johnson, who’s only played in 7 games during his career (20 receptions, 315 yards, 4 TDs). Michigan has freshmen such as Andrel Anthony and Cristian Dixon who are 6-foot-2 but still need to add weight to their frame and still need time to get acclimated to the speed and physicality of college football.
