OHIO WEATHER

Daylen Baldwin commits over Ohio State


Michigan football just won a crucial recruiting battle over rival Ohio State as the two schools battled to get an enigmatic wide receiver as a grad transfer.

Both the Wolverines and Buckeyes offered former Jackson State wideout Daylen Baldwin over the past week, and the Southfield native who attended Farmington High School and Waterford Mott had a decision to make: return home or head to ‘the school down south?’

Having originally played for Morgan State — with a one-year overlap with Tyrone Wheatley coaching him — Baldwin decided returning home was in his best interests. He announced on Twitter he is committing to Michigan football to finish his college career.

From Sunday’s write-up on Baldwin:

Baldwin’s first year compiling stats at the receiver position in 2018 wasn’t exactly prolific, as he reeled in 14 catches for 152 yards and a touchdown. But his 2020 season showed significantly more improvement as he got 25 catches for 520 yards and 7 touchdowns, an average of 20.8 yards-per-catch.

At 6-foot-3, 210-pounds, Baldwin could help fill the absence left by Nico Collins, who was drafted by the Houston Texans in the third round of the 2021 NFL draft. Paired with Cornelius Johnson on the outside, adding Baldwin could help add some versatility to a receiving corps that has been getting speedier, but smaller in stature.

The addition of Baldwin marks the third incoming transfer this offseason: Alan Bowman and Jordan Whittley are the other two.
