As a high schooler at Paramus Catholic High School in New Jersey, incoming Michigan cornerback Jabrill Peppers lined up as a defensive back, a running back and as a kick returner, and was successful in all three roles. Having a player that talented is a good problem for Wolverines head coach Brady Hoke. While Peppers will play corner this fall, it’s certainly possible that he will line up on offense for the Wolverines this year, something that Hoke hinted at during an interview with Campus Insiders yesterday.
You really can’t blame Hoke for wanting to get the ball in Peppers’ hands as much as possible. Peppers is a dynamic athlete, as evidenced by the 10.52 second 100-meter dash he ran earlier this year.
