"Speed is overrated."

Michigan's new recruiting strategy for wide receivers favors size and hands above speed. But most importantly, recruits should look like "Michigan Men":

"When he walks through that door, he should look like a Michigan wide receiver," Hecklinski said of Michigan's philosophy on recruiting receivers. "That thought, when a kid walks in and you say, 'Does he look like a Michigan Man?' That's important to us. That's very important to us because he represents us."

Big guys that can catch are nice to have, but you won't go far without any game-breakers.
