The Michigan Wolverines Football Recruiting class picked up commitment #24 from WR Jehu Chesson. The 3-star recruit hails from Chesterfield, Missouri. As a senior, Chesson hauled in 53 receptions for 757 yards and 6 TDs. He checks in at 6-foot-3, 182 pounds. He also ran track in high school posting a 37.44 in the 300 meter hurdles. Chesson chose the Wolverines over his other two final choices; Iowa and Northwestern.

Chesson is a playmaking receiver who can get to jump balls and stretch the field with his speed. He has a long frame and all the tools to become an outstanding College Football WR.

Here’s an excerpt of Chesson’s scouting report on ESPNU

Comes off the ball with explosion and a nice stride. Gets into routes quickly and can eat up cushion with an imposing charge upfield. He has some value as a vertical target due to his frame/speed combination, but we are not convinced he is a great speed guy rather a competitive one. He can really elevate and adjust to the jump ball. Positions himself nicely and will high point the ball with good extension. Has flashed the ability to make the spectacular grab look easy and can make the acrobatic grab in a crowd.

Chesson is one of the top prospects in the state of Missouri this year. He becomes the second WR in Michigan’s 2012 recruiting class, joining Amara Darboh.

Chesson’s commitment means there is very little room remaining for other prospects to jump on board the Michigan Wolverines Football recruiting train. I previously broke down a list of some of the remaining targets here: Michigan Wolverines Football Recruiting Targets
