Weight: 194 lbs.
High school: Harper Woods (MI) Chandler Park Academy
Position: Wide receiver
Jersey number: #81
Last year: I ranked York #89 and said he would redshirt. He played in one game as a backup receiver.
York came in last year as a somewhat unpolished receiver, and I was not the only one hoping he would redshirt. The coaches threw him in near the end of the blowout of Central Michigan only to put him back on the bench for the rest of the year. There's almost always at least one player who inexplicably burns his redshirt for a play or three, and York was the 2013 version.
York got a little more run in the spring game, and he looked decent. York isn't particularly speed, but he has pretty good size and has shown some good body control at various times. The top three receivers are usually the only ones that matter a great deal, and Amara Darboh's return from injury would make it seem that York will be no higher than fourth or fifth. I think York has higher upside than the likes of Jeremy Jackson, and I believe he can come in and make some chain-moving catches once in a while.
Prediction: Backup wide receiver; 3 catches, 33 yards
