Douglas is considered the 22nd-best cornerback in the country by Rivals, and No. 241 overall prospect in the class of 2013. He joins several well-regarded recruits that have enrolled early at Michigan.

Here's what Black Shoe Diaries wrote about Douglas at the time of his PSU commit:

In high school, Douglas plays both RB and DB, but is projected to play corner in college. He is a cover corner, who likes to play about 7-10 yards off the ball. He does seem to have some challenges in jamming receivers coming off the line, which could cause problems with some of the bigger Big 10 receivers. However, Douglas has the speed to make up the difference and seems to be able to read the quarterback well enough to disrupt pass plays. In addition, and somewhat surprisingly, he is more than adequate at playing the run. He also could play some on the offensive side of the ball, as a 3rd down/wildcat type back, and potentially in the return game. No matter where he lines up, Douglas should prove to be an exciting playmaker who, based on his speed and playmaking ability, has the potential to change the game every time he is on the field.

Ratings: Douglas is a four-star prospect according to both Rivals and 247Sports.

Vitals: He is 5'10", weighs 180 pounds and runs a 4.50 40.

Other offers: Nebraska, Penn State, Tennessee, Cincinnati, Maryland
