Sean O’Connell, UMGoBlog.com: “The Michigan coaches took there time in deciding which 2014 quarterback would receive an offer. The finalists seemed to be David Cornwell, Michael O’Connor and Wilton Speight. Well on signing day 2013, the Wolverines extended an offer to Speight after a rather brief courtship and Wilton immediately accepted. Although very big, Speight is hardly a statue (he reports a 4.72 40 time) showing good footwork and decent mobility. He has a slight hitch in his throwing motion, but he throws a high arching, effortless deep ball and is very accurate. It’s hard to tell how strong his arm is, but it seems to be more than adequate. I expect Speight to be top 15 at his position before the final 2014 rankings are released.”
ESPN Insider: “We feel Speight has a very good arm, but not a Matthew Stafford–Ryan Mallett type arm. Is a dropback/play-action passer with the movement to change a launch point. He has a calm, cool demeanor in the pocket that displays command and confidence and we feel will be an asset as he matures. Should be one of the top guys in this class on a national level.”
