Name: Freddy Canteen

Position: Wide Receiver 
Height/Weight: 6-1, 175 lbs
Location: Eastern Christian High School (Elkton, MD)
Class of 2014

Committed to Michigan (Early Enrollee)

Scouting Report: Canteen is a composite four-star recruit, according to 247 Sports. A solid slot receiver who runs good routes and has good ball skills. Still a bit thin, but at 6-1, 175 lbs, has plenty of room to grow into his frame and develop physically, especially with being enrolled in the program already. By no means a burner, but has enough speed and quickness to break away from defenders. 
What he brings to Michigan: Many were led to believe that Artavis Scott, teammate of Mason Cole, was a shoo-in to fill the slot receiver spot in this class for the Wolverines, but after it became apparent that Scott was trending elsewhere, Michigan offered Canteen a scholarship after he performed well in front of the coaching staff at a camp. While he may not be as talented as Scott, he earned his spot on this team firsthand with Brady Hoke and staff watching, so it would be foolish to write him off. He projects to be a very solid slot receiver for this team, and should be a good safety valve for the passing game going forward.
