Quick Analysis: Grant Perry to Michigan

New, 2 comments

We take a look at what the three-star wide receiver brings to the Wolverines.

Michigan received its tenth commitment of the 2015 recruiting class earlier Tuesday in the form of wide receiver Grant Perry (Bloomfield Hills, Michigan), which is also their first true wide receiver pledge to this point.

Perry, who is a three-star prospect, was a high school teammate of four-star quarterback commit Alex Malzone. The duo from Birmingham Brother Rice HS combined to form one of the best quarterback-to-wide receiver tandems in all of high school football last season.

In his senior year with the Warriors, Perry caught 105 passes for 1727 yards and 20 touchdowns. Malzone's tape on its own is impressive, but a majority of the big plays on there came from his favorite target.

At the Sound Mind Sound Body camp in Detroit last summer, Perry was lauded as one of the most technically sound wide receiver prospects he has ever seen. He is a great route runner who always finds himself open and has excellent hands.

Perry is not a burner by any means, but he possesses solid speed in the open field. At 6-foot, 185 pounds he obviously is not the biggest target, but he is strong and a solid athlete.

He looks to be a redshirt candidate in year one, but down the road he has the potential to be a very good slot receiver for the Wolverines in this offense. He should be able to move the chains and be a valuable piece on that side of the ball, especially if he gets to continue to get thrown to by Malzone.
