Corley details enrollment plans

One of the most watched recruitments during this dead period is that of Detroit (Mich.) King four-star wide receiver Donnie Corley and whether he will enroll in college early. The Rivals100 prospect broke down where things stand on his enrollment plans this week.
"I have to finish this English class to graduate early," Corley said. "If I finish that I will make a decision soon, but if I don't I'll just have to wait it out. I will probably finish (the class) during the break. I would definitely enroll early if I finish."
A host of schools have been involved in Corley's recruitment throughout the course of the process, but he took his three official visits to Michigan State, Tennessee and Ohio State.
"If the graduating early thing comes up, it will probably be (one of) those three schools because that's where I took my officials to and that's where I'm most comfortable with," Corley said.
"I am actually not 100 percent ready to make a decision, but I will probably make it to the school I am closest to (deciding for) at the time. Just when I get the okay, I will probably tweet it out soon (after)."
The official visit to Ohio State was Corley's most recent, taking place the weekend of Dec. 12.
"I had a good time; it was probably my best visit I've been on so far," Corley said. "I got to see a lot of things, watched them practice, see what they need and see the future. Michael Thomas is leaving and they need some bigger guys on the outside so I can get a chance to play early."
Once on campus, Corley connected with a pair of Detroit natives who showed the four-star receiver around Columbus.
"My hosts were Mikey (Weber) and Damon Webb, so I can interact with them pretty good," Corley said. "The other players and the coaches showed me I fit in pretty good."
Also on an official visit to Ohio State that weekend was four-star quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr., who is a Maryland commit but still considering the Buckeyes.
"I met him at The Opening and talked to him for a minute," Corley said. "(During the visit) we talked about possibly making plays together. From what I have seen, he can throw the ball pretty good. That's one thing about trying to pick a school is them having a good quarterback, so I'm trying to see what he does. That could change things."
If Corley does not enroll early, Michigan and Notre Dame are two schools that would likely receive official visits in January. Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh had an in-home visit with Corley and his family earlier this month.
"I like a lot about what they have been doing lately," Corley said of Michigan. "Just the development of the players, they have been winning and they can get you to the League for sure because they have coaches from the League, so they know what they are looking for at the next level."
Ohio State's Urban Meyer and Tennessee's Butch Jones also had their in-home visits with Corley and his family in December.
The 6-foot-2, 187-pound Corley is coming off a tremendous senior season that saw Detroit King finish 14-0 and Division 2 state champions. Corley caught a 39-yard touchdown with no time remaining on the clock to secure King's state title, and finished his senior season with 59 catches for 1,408 yards and 16 touchdowns.
