Starters: Roman Wilson, Cornelius Johnson, and Tyler Morris
Most pundits talk about the wide receivers when addressing Michigan football’s weaknesses in the 2023 season, but I certainly don’t share that feeling.
Maybe there isn’t a dominant No. 1 like Marvin Harrison Jr. But Roman Wilson is dynamic and seems poised for a breakout performance this season. Just look at what he was able to do in the Fiesta Bowl last season.
Cornelius Johnson had a huge game against Ohio State, but he’s been a consistent producer throughout his career. He’ll be a solid No. 2 this season and Tyler Morris will take on the Ronnie Bell role and shine.
Backups: Darrius Clemons, Peyton O’Leary, Semaj Morgan, Frederick Moore, Karmello English, and Christian Dixon
Michigan has a bunch of depth at wideout. Darrius Clemons is also a breakout candidate and I fully expect him to have a solid season in the 400-500 yard range. O’Leary had a big spring game and we’ll see if that carries over.
Morris and Clemons were part of a touted freshmen class in 2022 at the position. This fall, they’ll get their chance to show what they can do.
Morgan, Moore, and English also have a chance to play. I’ve always thought Morgan had the best chance of the freshmen receivers to play early, but all three could have a chance to see the field this season and could even burn their redshirt.
