Receivers are always going to be a hot commodity, and finding the right type of wideout for Michigan's offense will be crucial for the future. While there haven't been many commitments at receiver in the 2013 class, the Michigan coaching staff is already looking ahead to 2014.
A few of those prospects were in Columbus, Ohio, for the NFTC, including Damon Webb (Detroit/Cass Tech), Kendric Mallory (Trotwood, Ohio/Trotwood-Madison), Dominique Booth (Indianapolis/Pike) and Thaddeus Snodgrass (Springfield, Ohio/Springfield).
Snodgrass currently holds an offer from Toledo, but is already hearing from more programs.
"I've heard from Michigan State, Michigan, Ohio State, Nebraska, Bowling Green, Penn State and Notre Dame," he said. "I went up to Michigan State for their spring game. I liked the whole campus and how they treated everyone."
The 6-foot, 178-pound receiver performed well at the Ohio combine, but might have made a bigger statement with his fashion choice.
"I was wearing Wonder Woman socks on Saturday, and I had Superman socks with the capes before that," he said. "I wear different socks every combine, so next will probably be Cookie Monster."
Cookie Monster seems like a natural next move, and it sounds like Snodgrass knows what he's doing. He did show flashes of what he can do on the field as well. He believes that his route running and catching ability are what set him apart.
"I think I did OK (at the camp), there was some stuff I need to work on," he said. "I need to be more consistent and be more physical with the corners."
It's still early for Snodgrass, so he plans on just sitting back for now and taking everything in. He's not in any kind of rush to get the process over with and is hoping to add to his offer list in the near future.
"I'm going up to Michigan State's camp, West Virginia and probably Michigan," he said. "I'm just going to take my time and see what happens."
