Michigan was seen as the favorite, but Florida State and Ohio State were also viewed as legitimate possibilities.
Peoples-Jones has the size, at 6-foot-2 and 193 pounds, to make an immediate impact as a true freshman. According to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings, the Detroit native is the No. 11 recruit in the entire country, and the No. 1 overall wide receiver. Peoples-Jones is also the No. 1 player in the state of Michigan.
His commitment to Michigan makes him the Wolverines’ highest-ranked recruit, and the only 5-star product in Michigan’s 2017 class so far.
