Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh invoked former San Francisco Giants center fielder Willie Mays when discussing redshirt freshman DB Jabrill Peppers' versatility.
Holy hyperbole, Batman! The quote came in response to a question about whether Peppers could become a full-timer on offense. "Yes, it's realistic to think that," Harbaugh said. "He's such a good player. I can think of five different positions he'd be really good at in football. Could someone be the Willie Mays of football? Could somebody be the five-tool player, the five-position player? Maybe it will end up being Jabrill Peppers." Peppers has 40 tackles and 10 pass breakups on defense. He's also a kick and punt returner and has lined up at running back, quarterback and wide receiver. "Maybe we'll find his absolute best position as you go along, but it's interesting to think about and consider the possibilities," Harbaugh said. "You've seen him this year, he's played corner, he's played nickel, he's played safety, he's been a running back, he's been a quarterback, he's been a slot receiver, a wide receiver, he's been a punt return and a kick returner, Nov 24 - 10:31 PM
