Minn. WR Michael Floyd Has Early Top Five
Floyd recorded some tremendous numbers as a junior hauling in 65 catches for 1245 yards and adding another 245 yards on 12 rushes for a total of 16 touchdowns. With all this national attention one would think that it would go to an athlete's head, but Michael was very modest about his game. "I'd like to improve on my route running and how to use head turns and my arms more. I also want to get stronger, work on my speed, and be more flexible."
Last season Cretin-Derham graduated some very good players, but Michael is ready to help fill that void. "I want to lead my team and help us to win a state championship."
Floyd went to Minnesota's junior day on Feb. 24th and will be traveling to Notre Dame's on March 4th. Other than those two visit dates Michael has no definite plans in place for summer, however he did say that he will be taking some unofficial visits. So will Michigan be one of those places? "Yes."
In fact, Michael was able to catch a few of Michigan's games last season, including Wisconsin, Minnesota and the Ohio State-Michigan game. "The game against OSU was my favorite because the players played with so much intensity and passion. I also liked it because it was a high scoring game."
Michael spoke more about the University of Michigan. "I really like how they pass the ball around and utilize their talent especially at wide receiver." Floyd talked about some of the players that he tries to base his game off of. "I really like Mario Manningham and Adrian Arrington from Michigan. I also like watching Calvin Johnson [Georgia Tech] and Dwayne Jarrett [USC]."
Don't expect to find out too soon where this playmaking wide receiver will be heading as he would like to take as much time as needed to find the right school. "I'll be looking at the academics, the people around the community and the players. Basically, I want to be around good people. I want to make sure I can play and that I'm able to be here for at least 3-4 years and be successful."
Floyd acknowledged that he has a Michigan offer, received from Wolverine head coach Lloyd Carr over the phone.
GBW asked him: are there any schools, maybe a group of five, that particularly stand out to you?
"Yes, Michigan, Notre Dame, OSU, Florida, and Wisconsin." Florida is the only school of the five that hasn't offered yet.
GBW will keep you informed on Michael Floyd's recruitment over the next season.
