Wide receiver

This is one position where being a starter doesn’t matter as much. Wide receivers will often play a mix of snaps, especially if you have 5-6 you feel good about.

Michigan football has a pretty solid room. It’s a position people often cite as a weakness for the Wolverines going into the 2023 season.

However. think that’s discounting Michigan football’s wideouts a little too much. Roman Wilson could be in store for a breakout season. Cornelius Johnson also really came on. I don’t expect every game to be like Ohio State, but his production is proven.

Johnson isn’t a superstar but he can be counted on. Darrius Clemons and Tyler Morris will need to step up this season and both have the tools to do so.

Morris used to play high school football with McCarthy. Clemons is just a dynamic athlete and should have a breakout season. Yet, Peyton O’Leary, a star in the spring game, should also be in the mix to take Ronnie Bell’s old job.

Keep an eye on freshmen such as Semaj Morgan and Fredrick Moore too.
