The Michigan Wolverines struck out in the transfer portal this week when defensive tackle Jay Toia committed to UCLA. However, they could be in the mix to land one at a different position.

Jackson State wide receiver Daylen Baldwin is a name that is picking up steam as a target for Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines. The Michigan native entered the transfer portal earlier this month and has been working out for Big Ten schools like Penn State and Ohio State in addition to a trip to Ann Arbor.

Baldwin spoke to The Michigan Insider’s Sam Webb ($) about his experience at Michigan, where it appears he formed a quick bond with offensive coordinator Josh Gattis. It was stated to him that the team is looking for bigger-bodied wide receivers.

Michigan has a nice batch of talent at wide receiver but does not have much size at the position. Cornelius Johnson is a guy they like that can be a bigger target down the field, but he is a bit of an outlier compared to what the rest of the room is comprised of. The Wolverines have several players with speed and athleticism, but still have questions about how they can attack the field from the outside.

Baldwin stands at 6-foot-2, 213 pounds and reportedly ran in the high 4.4s. He has picked up a pair of 247Sports Crystal Balls this weekend from Webb and Allen Trieu, so it appears the Farmington native could wind up joining the wideouts before too long.

Baldwin had 25 catches for 520 yards and seven touchdowns last season playing for Deion Sanders at Jackson State.
