We observed Mikhail Baldwin recently at the Washington Elite Athletics Camp held recently at West Charlotte High School. Baldwin is a Class of 2021 WR who projects as a slot type of player at the next level.
The biggest thing we love about Baldwin is some incredible quickness running his routes. Baldwin has some electric start and stop ability throughout cuts in his routes, equally good in on in breaking and out breaking routes. He is someone that could be really good in the spread running game as well, on jet sweeps or reverse type plays where he gets the ball in his hands while on the move.
Looking at some film from last season, Mikhail does an excellent job of blocking from the slot position in both the run game and in the passing game. North Meck had two Division 1 wide receivers last season in Justin Olson and Da’Qon “Bobo” Stewart and a very good running back in Fabian Duncan, and some of their big plays came off the result of good blocks by Baldwin.
I think there will be more opportunity for Mikhail this coming season, and I anticipate him making some big plays for the Vikings this upcoming season!
