Michigan Wolverines: K.J. Williams

Tales From the Road: Michigan 

June, 5, 2013
Every Wednesday, WolverineNation will take a look at Michigan's week in recruiting in Tales From The Road. This week's targets:

As if landing one commit in one week was enough for Michigan, the Wolverines have added another prospect to the 2014 class.

Wide receiver Maurice "Moe" Ways (Beverly Hills, Mich./Country Day) committed to Michigan while on a visit on Thursday. The 6-foot-3 prospect confirmed his commitment via text, and is now the second wide receiver in this class.

Ways grew up a Michigan fan and was recently offered after wide receivers coach Jeff Hecklinski evaluated him in person during the evaluation period. A prospect who was sure to rise up the ranks and continue to add to his offer list, Ways is an excellent addition to fellow receiver commit Drake Harris (Grand Rapids, Mich./Grand Rapids Christian).

With a good combination of size, hands and speed, Ways will be versatile in what he will be able to do in Michigan's offense once he gets to Ann Arbor. Likely slated for the outside, he will be a guy who can stretch the field or go up and get the jump ball, which is exactly what Michigan wants.

Despite having two receivers committed now, Michigan would still take another wideout in this class. Prospects including Artavis Scott (Tarpon Springs, Fla./East Lake), K.J. Williams (Bethlehem, Pa./Liberty) and Corey Holmes (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas) are all still options.

Ways is the No. 7 commitment in Michigan's 2014 class, and there are approximately nine remaining spots.

Here is a look at some of the wide receiver targets for 2014:
