Donaven McCulley a former Indiana quarterback and wide receiver reported an offer from Michigan football in the transfer portal on Wednesday.
Heading into next season, it’s likely that Michigan football is going to have to replace its top two wide receivers in Cornelius Johnson and Roman Wilson.
Wilson would have a year to return if he wished to use it. But Johnson, who has turned in big-time performances against Ohio State the past two seasons, won’t be able to return.
The Wolverines have some solid options on the depth chart such as Darrius Clemons, Semaj Morgan, Tyler Morris, and others. But a proven veteran is always helpful and Michigan football continued to be active in the transfer portal with an offer to Donaven McCulley on Wednesday.
McCulley is 6-foot-5, 205 pounds. He was also a former quarterback and actually has a touchdown pass against Michigan in his career. But McCulley switched to wide receiver last season and has caught 64 passes for 813 yards and seven touchdown receptions.
This season, McCulley caught 48 passes for 644 yards and six touchdowns. He caught 11 passes for 137 yards, as well as notching four receptions for 96 and a touchdown against Penn State.
McCulley averaged over 13 yards per reception this season and the Wolverines are just one of the teams to offer him on Wednesday. Nebraska was another and certainly, there is going to be some stiff competition, although the former Indiana wideout said he wants to visit Ann Arbor already.
“Michigan 100 percent catches my eye,” McCulley told Steve Wiltfong of 247 Sports. “I wanna get up there as soon as possible.”
The Wolverines could use a big wideout like McCulley and last offseason, Michigan had success with former Indiana players landing A.J. Barner and Jack Tuttle.
Barner has become a standout this season for the Wolverines and is certainly a dude who’s going to have some NFL interest if he decides to leave. Maybe McCulley will follow in his footsteps.
