videoAs a junior, wide receiver Csont'e York (Detroit/Chandler Park Academy) was on a high school team that was known for running the ball. His opportunities to snag passes and score touchdowns were limited, and he didn't have the chance to rack up the stats that garner offers like some of his fellow 2013 Michigan commits.

But out of that came something very, very good. Something that Michigan coach Brady Hoke loves about York. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound receiver learned how to block, block and block some more.

"I wanted to be physical and help the team," York said. "I had to get used to blocking. My coach told me, 'We need you to block all the time. That's how we're going to be successful.' So I did."
