Michigan lands pledge from graduate transfer WR out of Jackson State
Michigan is adding some depth to its wide receiver room. The Wolverines received a pledge from Jackson State graduate transfer Daylen Baldwin on Monday afternoon.
Baldwin made his announcement on Twitter. The former FCS receiver will provide Michigan with some much-needed talent and depth at the outside and could be an instant impact player in the passing attack.
During the spring season at Jackson State, Baldwin played in six games and had 540 yards and 7 touchdowns on 27 receptions. At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, he also brings great size to the position in Ann Arbor.

Baldwin will be returning close to home in the maize and blue. A native of Farmington, Michigan, the receiver was a member of the 2017 recruiting class. He started his college career at Morgan State before transferring to Jackson State.
At Morgan State, Baldwin played in 25 games and totaled 30 receptions for 333 yards and 2 touchdowns. He transferred out of Morgan State following the 2018 season and did not play at Jackson State during the 2019 season.
Baldwin will still have two years of eligibility to use at Michigan.
The Wolverines needed a boost at receiver after Giles Jackson decided to leave the program following the 2020 season. The speedy receiver committed to Washington, a Week 2 opponent for Michigan. The offense also lost Nico Collins, who opted out of last season, to the NFL Draft.
