Michigan’s top two wideouts in Roman Wilson and Cornelius Johnson are likely both entering their names in the 2024 NFL Draft, which puts the Wolverines in the market for transfer portal options at the position.
It appears Michigan’s made an offer to Indiana transfer wideout Donaven McCulley. McCulley posted the news on X.
McCulley has received a rapid amount of offers since the portal opened on Monday night including Michigan, UAB, USF, Kentucky, NC State, Penn State and South Carolina.
McCulley’s a big target, standing 6-foot-5, 200-pound and just had the best season of his three-year collegiate career. McCulley had 48 receptions for 644 yards and six touchdowns this season.
McCulley started out playing quarterback at Indiana in 2021, throwing for 475 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions — McCulley also started against Michigan in ‘21, a 29-7 Indiana loss going 10-of-24 for 88 yards with 37 yards rushing. McCulley had better luck as a passer against Michigan this season, throwing for a touchdown as a wideout on a trick play.
Donaven McCulley started at QB against Michigan in 2021 but didn't throw a touchdown pass. He did, however, have a scoring toss on a trick play against the Wolverines this fall, as a wide receiver. https://t.co/Kykn6yVAWm— Clayton Sayfie (@CSayf23) December 6, 2023
“Michigan 100 percent catches my eye,” McCulley told 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong. “I wanna get up there as soon as possible.”
Below is a good example of what McCulley can bring to Michigan. McCulley has great athleticism and can make incredible catches all while using his vertical abilities. In short, McCulley could make Michigan’s offense more explosive.
