Detroit King four-star receiver/cornerback Donnie Corley said he plans to make his college decision at the U.S. Army All-American bowl game Jan. 9 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, then enroll at that school two days later.
Corley, who caught a 40-yard touchdown catch on the final play in a dramatic comeback win over Lowell in the Division 2 state title game at Ford Field last month, did not hint at what school he was leaning toward, saying Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Tennessee and Notre Dame were still in the mix.
Corley said he doesn’t plan on taking any more official visits.
“I’m going to make my decision on Jan. 9 at the Army game, then enroll on the 11th,” Corley told The Detroit News on Wednesday afternoon. “I don’t have a top three. I’m still looking at Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Tennessee and Notre Dame.”
When asked what impressed him about Michigan State, Corley replied: “They’ve been through a lot this season and have beaten some great teams. They’ve done a good job with their receivers.”
He also has been impressed with first-year Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.
“You can tell how he’s been getting better players so I think they’ll be real good,” Corley said.
Corley said it doesn’t matter if he plays receiver or cornerback in college.
At one time Corley said he could be making his choice when his teammate, four-star cornerback Lavert Hill made his, but said that isn’t the case.
“I’m not sure when he’ll make his decision since he’s not enrolling early,” Corley said.
Hill will also be playing in the Army game in San Antonio.
Corley will leave for San Antonio on Sunday. He is among six players up for the Player of The Year Award, which will be handed out Jan. 8.
