DeWayne Peace Goes Blue

Completing the, uh, bi-fecta for the day, DeWayne Peace has committed to the Michigan Wolverines. Peace (6-0, 178, 4.68) is a DB/WR from South Grand Prairie HS in Texas. He becomes the 12th player in the 2009 class.

Commitment Notes
Peace was a somewhat under-the-radar prospect through much of his recruitment. Until early June, he favor the Texas A&M Aggies and the Kansas Jayhawks. That all changed with a visit to the Rich Rodriguez Football Camp, however. Peace and Michigan were mutually impressed, and upon Peace's return, A&M was out of the picture, and Michigan was in the top 2 with Kansas. DeWayne decided to end his recruitment shortly thereafter, and gave his word to become a Michigan Wolverine.

Player Notes
Peace has been impressive at both wideout and corner, and is known for good quickness and fluid hips. He moves in and out of breaks cleanly, and uses good routes to get open. At Michigan, it is unclear whether he will be a defensive back or wideout/slot.


From the Super Jayhawk camp.

    I'm thinking he's going to end up on the defensive side of the ball, but does anyone else know or have a clue which position he'll end up playing?

    it's been reported that the staff will test him on both sides and will see how well he does the first two years. By third year, it will be determined which side of the ball he'll play on.

    And for the record, the fact that Kansas was so high on him tells me he is an awesome catch. Mangino and his staff have been able to build their team by identifying kids that have either been ignored or under the radar and have ended up great ball players. Can't say for sure this will be the case with Peace, but the fact that UK was interested says a lot, imho.
