Despite being widely expected to end up playing college football in the Midwest, Donnie Corley has maintained a persistent dialogue with Tennessee’s coaches.
Head coach Butch Jones and passing game coordinator/receivers coach Zach Azzanni made the trip north to visit with the 4-star receiver from Martin Luther King High School (Wyandotte, Mich.) last week.
“It went very good,” the 6-foot-2 ½, 183-pound receiver told SEC Country. “I have a very strong relationship with them and they’re from Michigan.”
Corley said he was still considering an official visit this weekend, possibly to Notre Dame or Ohio State, but hasn’t made firm plans yet. He has taken official visits to Michigan State (Sept. 12) and Tennessee (Oct. 10).
Corley was scheduled to announce his decision on Tuesday but postponed. He said he is unsure when he’ll make his commitment now.
According to his 247 Crystal Ball prediction, there is an 85 percent chance Corley commits to Michigan State, followed by Michigan at 8 percent and Ohio State and Notre Dame at 4 percent. However, Corley has always maintained he has strong interest in Tennessee, which is the only southern school he is thought to be considering.
Corley is rated the No. 21 receiver prospect in the nation and the No. 2 prospect in Michigan.
