Detroit Cass Tech (Mich.) has an explosive freshman wide receiver in Donovan Peoples-Jones who has been to both Michigan and Michigan State for visits this year. Most recently, he saw the Wolverines take on Ohio State.

They already call Donovan Peoples-Jones "the freak" around Cass Tech. Considering the talent level at the school, that is an indication of the freshman wide receiver's abilities.

An injury kept him out for much of the early part of the season, but when he returned, he made up for lost time making several big plays in the city and state playoffs.

"Playing as a freshman was great," he said. "Cass won two state championships and coming in as a freshman, I just wanted to play my role and do what I could and I think I did that."

Early recruiting attention has come from Michigan and Michigan State. Peoples-Jones visited the Wolverines on Saturday and saw a closely fought battle with the Wolverines losing by a point to Ohio State.

"Man, the whole game was live. It went down to the wire and there's nothing better than that. I didn't have a chance to talk to the coaches. I wasn't with my coaches so I had to leave early."

As for other visits, Peoples-Jones said, "I went early in the year when Michigan played Central and when Michigan State played Indiana, and I went to Michigan State one other time but not for a game."

Having been to East Lansing twice, he likes what he has seen there too.

"I like it, nice atmosphere, good facilities, I like it a lot."
