Detroit Denby 2020 DT Jermaine Trammell sees recruitment take off

Detroit Denby 2020 DT Jermaine Trammell has seen his recruitment take off in a big way during his junior campaign.

“It seems like everyday I’ve been receiving emails and letters from schools and coaches, it’s been nice,” he says.

Although Trammell hasn’t received an offer since February he has been talking to a number of schools and could be on the verge of some more offers.

“I’ve visited Toledo, Miami (OH), and last week I visited Western Michigan and then Eastern Michigan on the weekend.”

Trammell holds three Division 1 offers from Minnesota Syracuse and Western Kentucky (according to 247sports.com) and is wanting to hear from a couple more.

“I really want to hear from Kentucky. I would also like to hear from Indiana and also hear a little more from Pittsburgh.”

Trammell helped Denby to a 7-2 record in the regular season with their only losses coming to Division 2 playoff team Detroit Renaissance 21-20 and state power Division 3 playoff team Detroit King 27-18. Denby will be in Division 5 and host Detroit Osborn in the opening round of playoffs on Friday.

Muskegon 2020 “ATH” Cameron Martinez leads Muskegon to 8-0 in win over Mona Shores/ hearing from Northwestern, MSU, CMU among others

Last week, I made a long trip down to Muskegon for a matchup that pitted cross-town rivals Muskegon and Mona Shores in a battle of undefeated 7-0 teams in a OK-black matchup.

Muskegon broke out of the gate early scoring on their first play from scrimmage and never looked back in a convincing 55-35 win and their 3rd straight over Mona Shores.

2020 QB/“ATH” and Michigan State target Cameron Martinez was the player of the game rushing for six touchdowns and over 300 yards.

“We were in a big atmosphere, we did a lot of good things and I thought we played really well,” says Martinez.

With the MHSAA state playoffs coming Martinez says he’s focused on that right now.

“We have to keep this momentum into the playoffs, we need to approach everyone the same and make sure we do the little things right.”

Martinez has been in contact with a few schools about visiting and says Michigan State is one of them.

“I’ve been in contact with Coach Bullough, he’s the recruiting coordinator for my area and he came to my Week 3 game when Michigan State had a bye. They’ve been talking to me about getting to a game too.”

As most might know, Muskegon is where Ladarius Jefferson came from last year who started at QB and led the Big Reds to a State Championship and Martinez came in transferring from Muskegon Catholic Central where he won a State Championship as a Freshman.

“Transferring is the best decision I’ve ever made and it opened up so many doors for me. As for Ladarius, I’m just trying to do the same thing he did last year, anything less than that is a disappointment.”

Martinez is a 3 Star “ATH” but has played QB all season for the Big Reds. His offers include Central Michigan who had a coach at the game Friday to watch, Syracuse, Northwestern, Kentucky, and Indiana. Martinez has also received interest from Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Tennessee.

Zeeland East 2019 “ATH” Gabe Taylor receives Ferris State offer and hears from other GLIAC/MAC schools

Zeeland East 2019 “ATH” Gabe Taylor received an offer from Ferris State on Monday which was his first offer.

Taylor has been phenomenal and has received plenty of interest from a few schools such as CMU, and Davenport.

CMU recently came to watch Taylor and Chix RB Josh Fusco and Davenport has been on him about visiting for a game.

Taylor is also a track recruit that has been very successful in high school but says right now he’s focusing on playing football at the next level unless track presents itself as a better option.

Part of the delay in Taylor’s recruitment was because he had a partially torn hamstring and wasn’t able to attend any summer camps.

When I watched Taylor play in September he had five rushing touchdowns in the Chix 56-35 win over Holland Christian.

The senior has played QB all season for the Chix leading them to a 6-1 record so far this season.

Belleville 2022 DB Myles Rowser will visit Michigan Saturday and breaks down how playing varsity football has helped him

Belleville 2022 DB Myles Rowser will visit Michigan this Saturday in their home game Big Ten opened against Nebraska.

Rowser is returning to Michigan for a second time after attending their BBQ in July.

“I want to get there Saturday and discuss my future as a student-athlete with Coach Brown, and Coach Harbaugh,” says Rowser.

As a freshman in high school Rowser has a LONG ways to go in high school but early on he has a special connection and tie to Michigan that may be hard to beat.

“My great uncle John Rowser played RB/CB for Michigan in the 60’s and won a Super Bowl with the Packers. I’m trying to be like that or if not better.”

Along with his uncle, Rowser is pretty close so close however they’re actually brothers, who is a Michigan commit in the 2020 class, Andre Seldon Jr. who also goes to Belleville and plays DB.

“(Dre) is my big brother. Playing with him and learning from him everyday is an advantage for me and with his commitment to Michigan that makes me want to be there with him more but bring this early my recruitment is open to anyone.”

Along with Seldon, there are a couple other big time recruits on Belleville’s roster, including Devontae Dobbs and Julian Barnett both committed to Michigan State.

“Right now, no one is really focused on recruiting, we’re trying to focus on doing our jobs and getting better everyday. Our big task is bringing home the state championship this year.”

So far Rowser describes his varsity experience as “exciting”, and says he’s learned a lot fast. The freshman has a lot of time left in High School but with all the early interest which includes Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, and UCLA his recruitment might be one to watch in coming years.

Grand Blanc 2019 DB Kortez Toles visits Michigan this weekend and previews big game Friday night

Grand Blanc 2019 DB Kortez Toles will visit Michigan on Saturday when the Wolverines take on Nebraska in their Big Ten opener.

“I’ve been talking to the recruiting coach, Coach (Tony) Jones. He used to go to Grand Blanc, and has seen me play and wanted me to come down to a game,” says Toles.

Toles has received his fair share of interest from colleges so far with seven offers from schools such as Pittsburgh, Toledo and Central Michigan but says an offer from Michigan would change everything.

“An offer from Michigan would mean everything to me!” Says Toles. “My dad loves Michigan and always told me ‘if you get offered by Michigan you better commit there on the spot’ and everyone knows the best players in Michigan go to Michigan.”

Before Toles gets down to Ann Arbor Friday he has a big game of his own as the Bobcats of Grand Blanc take on Davison who both come into the game 4-0 in a pivotal SVL matchup.

“I’ve never played Davison, and it’s a new rivalry for us because we’re both good but they’ve been talking a lot so we have a lot to prove Friday.”

Grand Blanc is coming off a big win over Carman-Ainsworth last Friday defeating them 42-14 and is looking to take the momentum into Friday’s matchup against Davison.

“We just have to keep doing what we’re doing, going to practice knowing we have to get better and being prepared. Keeping focus and knowing our jobs and executing them on Friday.”

Toles is rated a “3 Star” and ranked 35th best player in Michigan according to 247sports.com

Flint Beecher 2020 WR Earnest Sanders receives second D1 offer on visit to Toledo, hearing from Power 5 schools

Flint Beecher 2020 WR Earnest Sanders received his second D1 offers over the weekend from Toledo while visiting the Glass City as the Rockets took on Miami.

The offer joins Central Michigan and Ferris State (D2) as schools that have offered the Wide Receiver.

“I was invited to the game by the coaches and after the game I met with Coach Poteat, and he told me they wanted to offer me a scholarship so I was really excited,” says Sanders.

On top of schools that have already offered Sanders, he’s been hearing from a couple more that he wants to get to on visits soon.

“Cincinnati and Michigan State have been in contact quite a bit.”

Sanders is getting offered right now on the football field but it’s worth noting that he also plays basketball at Beecher High School where he was a State Champion as a freshman and plays along side one of the highest recruited players in the Midwest in the 2020 class in Jalen Terry.

“I’ve thought about playing two sports in college but it’s hard to do, I’d like to play both but right now I’m just focusing on one.”

Sanders and Flint Beecher are 2-2 through four games this season and face a crucial week 5 game against Bentley who is 1-3 and is coming off a 42 point loss to Tawas Area.

Predictions of top 10 games around the state Week 2

Belleville 36 – Livonia Churchill 21

Belleville had a scare last week winning in the last minute against Brighton. Look for them to tighten up this week and make a statement with arguably the most lodes roster in the state against a good Churchill team who knocked off Canton last week.

Oak Park 34 – Birmingham Groves 30

Oak Park kicked off the season last week at Wayne State for the Xenith Prep Kickoff Classic and took care of Utica Eisenhower behind a big game from Phillip Stewart and Dwan Mathis. Groves starts out the year with West Bloomfield and Oak Park which is a daunting task. Groves pushes Oak Park to the end but the run game with Stewart and Mathis are too much tonight.

Forest Hills Central 24 – West Ottawa 21

In one of the most intriguing games on the west side of the state two of the premier schools with some of the deepest playoff runs from a year ago battle in week 2. This will live up to the hype and come down to the wire with a late touchdown deciding this one.

Waterford Mott 27 – White Lake Lakeland 19

Both Waterford and Lakeland came out week 1 taking care of business both winning by 40+. This one will be a little different but Waterford with highly recruited receiver Christian Fitzpatrick is too much for Lakeland to contain all game.

Frankenmuth 28 – Swan Valley 21

In what is by far the best game in the Saginaw area squares off a State Finalist and State Final four team in Division 5 who both ended their seasons against West Catholic last year. Most thought Frankenmuth was looking to rebuild but a convincing win over a D3 playoff team from a year ago in Bay City Central proved otherwise. This will be a dandy with Frankenmuth proving their still a power in the area.

Muskegon 36 – Detroit King 34

In what might be the game of the year, King travels to the west side of the state to take on state power Muskegon. Both are coming off wins against good teams and I expect a shootout between two of the best Dual threat QBs in the Midwest in Cameron Martinez (Muskegon) and DeQuan Finn (King). I think this turns into a big game for Martinez who breaks out into as the top junior QB in the state with a huge game at home in front of the Big Red fans.

Saline 31 – Grand Rapids Catholic Central 14

Saline lost a tough one by five points to a very good Chippewa Valley team in week 1 now they go up against a reigning state champion in D4 in week 2. Saline is a bigger school with more numbers and GRCC with the graduation of Mayfield can’t compete with those numbers.

De La Salle 35 – Grandville 20

De La Salle opened up against Muskegon and showed signs of competing with the best. This week they play at home vs Grandville who is also 0-1. De La Salle gets a much needed first win.

East Kentwood 32 – Orchard Lake St. Mary 14

Another battle of 0-1 teams trying to get their first wins. East Kentwood has one of the most talented lines in the state with guys like Logan Brown, Dallas Fincher, Bryce Mostella, Mazi Smith all highly recruited guys. OLSM is still rebuilding and face a tough test after getting upset in week 1 by Macomb Dakota.

West Bloomfield 27 – Clarkston 10

In a rematch of the Division 1 State Final which saw Clarkston win 3-2 the two face off again to open conference play. West Bloomfield won last year in the regular season and will do so again. Clarkston’s defense and coaching should keep them in the game until the end but the talent of guys like Tre Mosley, Donovan Edwards, and Lance Dixon will be shown to pull the Lakers away getting revenge from last years State Final.

Oscar A. Carlson 2020 ATH Ian Stewart ready to get back to Football after busy offseason

Oscar A. Carlson 2020 WR Ian Stewart had a very busy offseason.

Following a very successful sophomore campaign Stewart saw his recruitment sky rocket receiving offers from all around the country including Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Indiana, and Boston College.

Now Stewart looks forward to being back under those lights making plays for his team.

“I had a great summer and I got after it,” says Stewart. “I’ve been having dreams about putting on those pads for a week now and I’m not kidding. I’m excited. We have something to prove to everyone this year.”

The recruiting process is sometimes an exhausting obstacle for athletes and Stewart has gotten away from it a little bit now that his season is coming up.

“It’s good to get away from all of it not having to think about it as much.”

With the recruitment being the way that it is for Stewart he comes into the season with a mark on his back but says he handles it just like he would any other season.

“I wouldn’t say I like the added pressure of being highly recruited but it doesn’t bother me, I just go out and play. I have a couple goals for the season since I’m playing QB/RB I want to rush for 1,000 yards and have 80+ tackles on defense.”

Stewart says so far no offer has stood out to him and he’s taking the recruiting process slow.

Oscar A. Carlson opens their season at home Thursday (Aug. 23) against Woodhaven.

Petoskey 2020 “ATH” Gabe Whitmore previews upcoming season

Gabe Whitmore comes into 2018 with big goals. A returning starter from a disappointing 3-6 campaign highlighted by a week 2 14-7 victory over Escanaba who ended up a final 4 team in Division 4 of the MHSAA playoffs.

This year Whitmore and the Northmen have different aspirations as they have goals of getting back to playoffs and that’s being shown the first few weeks of practice.

“We’ve been practicing really well and playing hard,” says Whitmore. “A ton of leadership this year, and we have a ton of energy coming from the upperclassmen.”

Last year Whitmore played up on varsity as a sophomore and says the experience is invaluable and is ready for round 2.

“Last year I learned a lot but now I know what it takes to be successful at varsity football and hope I can relay that message to younger players. Also I did some summer camps and learned from a lot of great coaches and that has helped a ton.”

Whitmore is what we consider an athlete where he plays and excels at multiple positions on the field. A Big North Conference 2nd team WR a year ago is in the midst of a QB competition as well as being the teams starting Free Safety.

“Josh (Rowe) and I are competing for QB against each other right now and it’s helping both of us reach new levels. I think right now our coaching staff is just figuring out if they want me to play because I’m a good runner or if they want more of a passer in Josh. The competition is really benefitting our whole team and making everyone better. I just like making plays so I’ll be happy whatever they decide.”

Gabe comes from a good football family with both brothers playing varsity at Petoskey, Evan (2016) and Shea (2013) which Gabe says has been very beneficial.

“It’s always helped. I grew up watching them and looking up to them. Evan has the most wins of any QB in Petoskey history which is awesome and Shea played college football at Hillsdale. Having those two for brothers looking up to them has showed me how hard work can be rewarded.”

In just nine days Mount Pleasant will travel up to Petoskey to kick off the season and Whitmore is more than ready he says.

“Mount Pleasant is pretty good. Our coaches know them a little bit from playing them a couple years ago in the playoffs. We’ve been preparing for their offense in practice. I think we have what it takes to beat them we just have to be more physical and outlast them and I think we’ll have a good chance.”

Whitmore is one of the most intriguing prospects in Northern Michigan and will be a player to watch in 2018 who is being recruited by some D2 and NAIA schools right now.

Preview: Genesee County Senior Player of The Year 2018

Football is right around the corner. Just as coaches and players get ready for the season making it the best one yet, writers, scouts, and various forms of media do the same gearing up for the most exciting time of the year.

There will be updates throughout the season brought to you by Midwest Prep Lounge on this prestigious award.

Cornell Wheeler waiting patiently on Michigan State offer will visit tomorrow July 31st.

West Bloomfield 2020 LB Cornell Wheeler visited Michigan State twice last season and came away with a lot of valuable experience on recruiting but no offer yet.

Since last fall though Wheeler has picked up steam in recruiting getting offers from Kentucky, Missouri, Minnesota and Michigan among others but a Michigan State offer tomorrow when he visits may change things for him.

“I can truly see myself playing there,” says Wheeler. “MSU is exciting to me because of the coaching staff, campus, fans, and most definitely the education.”

At West Bloomfield with other highly recruited prospects Wheeler fits right in and often jokes with teammates about where he might end up.

“Sometimes Tre (MSU commit) and Lance (PSU commit) fight over me,” Wheeler laughs. “They say ‘Go Green’ or ‘Go Penn State’, but it’s all in fun. They want me to go where I’m needed and they’ll be happy for me wherever I’m at.”

Another player trying to recruit Wheeler is Belleville’s 2020 DB Andre Seldon who is a Michigan commit.

“I had a good time this last weekend at the U of M BBQ and Andre and I have a real nice relationship. We always talk about what it would be like to play together.”

For tomorrow Wheeler plans on focusing on Michigan State and hopefully earning an offer.

“I want to even better strengthen my relationship with MSU coaches and hoping I can get an offer. I truly could see myself playing there.”

Wheeler alsonoted how well Michigan State is Recruiting the 2019 class.

“That 2019 class they have right now is stacked. They have a lot of nice players, things are good at MSU.”

Wheeler is a 3 Star LB and will visit tomorrow with teammates Tre Mosley (2019) Makari Paige (2020) and Donovan Edwards (2021)

Michigan vs Ohio State heats up in recruiting rivalry

Michigan and Ohio State have always been rivals on the football field as the two schools meet up annually in a clash in the last week of the regular season in what is often referred to as “The Game.”

For upcoming recruits they may have the option to play in “The Game” but for some with offers from both schools must choose if they’ll be repping Maize and Blue in Ann Arbor or Scarlet and Gray in Columbus in late November.

This past weekend some major recruits got to experience what it might be like suiting up in that game.

The day before the Michigan BBQ in Ann Arbor, Ohio State dropped the hammer down on two East Kentwood star lineman Bryce Mostella and Dallas Fincher both with Michigan offers and are teammates with 2019 Michigan commit Mazi Smith were offered by Ohio State Friday night. Mostella was rumored as one of the likely recruits to commit over the weekend as he has been noted before as making Michigan a top school but with the Ohio State offer the Buckeyes May have at least delayed his decision.

Another player who made the trip down to Columbus and then Ann Arbor is Bay City Central 2020 WR Devell Washington. Washington was offered by both schools in the last couple months and continues to weigh his options but seems to really enjoy Ohio State.

Finally there was one in-State player who turned down the Big House all together but made a trip to Columbus and that’s 2020 4 Star WR Rashawn Williams. Williams has offers from both schools but turning down the offer and going to Columbus makes it even more likely that’s where Williams is learning to at the moment.

For the prospects there’s still about a year and a half until National Signing Day but there’s already some great story lines for the athletes and one of the biggest rivalries in sports.

Dearborn Fordson 7 on 7 Standouts

On Wednesday (July 11th) arguably the biggest 7 on 7 of the summer went down at Fordson High School in Dearborn.

The 12 team tournament included schools such as, Belleville, West Bloomfield, Flint Carman-Ainsworth, Southfield A&T, Cass Tech, host Fordson among others. Belleville won the tournament with their only loss on the day coming in pool play to West Bloomfield. Chippewa Valley was runners-up.

Tre Mosley- The 2019 West Bloomfield WR was the most impressive player on the day. By far the most polished receiver in the state certainly has a knack for the game where multiple times would call out adjustments and made plays and set up plays for others. A play that comes to mind was against Belleville in arguably the game of the day with several D1 prospects on the field, with two seconds until half time West Bloomfield had one shot at the End Zone from the 40 yard line, Coach Bellamy threw in Lance Dixon (PSU LB commit) on offense because of his athleticism and lined up next to Mosley next thing I know Mosley tells him “I’m going to split the receivers up the middle, go make a play” sure as he said it Mosley split the middle and Dixon made an incredible one handed catch to ultimately propel the Lakers over the Tigers.

Dustin Fletcher- Often over-looked by older brother Michael, Dustin had a great showing slinging the rock. The 2020 Carman-Ainsworth QB made play after play and looks like he could be on the verge of more offers as Junior year is often the most crucial for a recruit.

Andre Seldon Jr.- The first major prospect off the board in the 2020 class who committed to Michigan last month, Belleville’s Seldon doesn’t get targeted often at corner but has a knack for breaking up any pass that comes his way. One of the fastest players in the state has a mentality that no one will beat him which sets him apart from bigger and stronger players.

David Ellis- Chippewa Valley

Marcel Lewis- Chippewa Valley

Josh DeBerry- De La Salle

Jacob Dobbs- De La Salle

Mike Fletcher- Carman-Ainsworth

Lance Dixon- West Bloomfield

Donovan Edwards- West Bloomfield

CJ Harris- West Bloomfield

Christian Dhue-Reid- Belleville

Jalen Williams- Belleville

2019 Muskegon Mona Shores WR/DB Ke’Sean Sandifer sets goals on upcoming senior season

2019 Muskegon Mona Shores WR/DB Ke’Sean Sandifer has been waiting for football season for quite some time, well he’s been waiting since the day his junior year ended.

“I tore my meniscus right before playoffs last year and was out, it was a bummer not to be able to play with my team in the playoffs,” says Sandifer. “We had a lot of key players hurt at crucial times last season and I’m looking forward to seeing how we bounce back this year.”

Sandifer one of the key returners to the team plans on being an integral piece to what he hopes is a successful season and a deep playoff run.

“I’m really looking forward to making a big run in playoffs and helping my team however I can with my energy as one of the team captains.”

Mona Shores has a very talented coaching staff and players headlined by Jacob Wahlberg and Damari Roberson who are both committed to Western Michigan but Sandifer explains how it’s been such a blessing playing with them and for a great team such as Mona Shores.

“It’s truly a blessing. To be coached by Coach Koziak and the rest of the staff is a challenge, but the reward of being ready by game time is worth it. As for my teammates, I’m grateful for them. They’re my brothers, and I love being around them building a bond.”

Sandifer isn’t the biggest player but makes up with it with quickness and heart standing only 5-foot-6, 150 pounds but has started to receive attention from some colleges.

“I’ve heard from a lot of D2 and D3 schools and a couple D1’s such as Cornell.”

Sandifer has no offers to report yet but a healthy and successful 2018 senior season will change that. Mona Shores opens the 2018 schedule with a super talented East Kentwood before taking on an up-coming Bay City Central team.

Harper Woods 2021 OT/DT Davion Weatherspoon receives Michigan offer at camp/ updates what’s next in his recruitment

Harper Woods 2021 OT/DT Davion Weatherspoon wrapped freshman year about a month ago and now is already getting Football scholarship offers for college.

Weatherspoon was at the Michigan Camp and came away with a big offer his first, from an in-state Big Ten School.

“I really didn’t think I’d receive an offer this early into high school,” says Weatherspoon. “Especially from my dream school, Michigan.”

Getting an offer so early in high school is a blessing for anyone but could also bring some pressure to a youngster. Weatherspoon says he’s ready for that pressure.

“I’m going to stay humble about the offer and continue to work hard like I don’t have any offers.”

Weatherspoon has a couple other schools he’s eying up to try and earn offers from.

“I would love to get offers from Penn State, Michigan State, Iowa State, and Minnesota.”

Weatherspoon made the trip to Morgan State for a camp Wednesday where he came away with another offer. He transferred from EEVPA and this will be his first year at Harper Woods.

Weatherspoon made the trip to Morgan State Wednesday where he came away with a second offer

2019 Southfield A&T DB Marcus Faqua sets trend and commits to Buffalo

2019 Southfield A&T DB Marcus Faqua recently committed to Buffalo last Saturday (June 23rd) becoming just the 3rd commitment for Buffalo with two of them coming from Michigan with Faqua and Detroit King’s LB Rich Miller.

“I’ve talked to Rich a little bit before I committed,” says Faqua. “I think we could play well together.”

Faqua fell in love with Buffalo and looks forward to his time in New York and living on his own outside of Michigan.

“Buffalo was perfect for my major and all the coaches there liked me,” says Faqua. “They’re on the rise out there and I’m excited to join them. As for moving to New York I think it will be good for me, I’ve lived in Michigan my whole life and it’ll be nice to live in a different state, especially New York.”

The MAC conference is a big conference for high school prospects out of Michigan with schools like Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, and Central Michigan being in the state in the conference which always haul in many Michigan players, but Faqua is looking forward to the rivalry he’ll have and getting more Michigan guys in Buffalo.

“It’s going to be fun playing against my former teammates and friends. It’ll make for a good little rivalry and make some great memories for me. As for guys joining me, I know a couple guys I might try to get to come to Buffalo with me.”

Faqua like any recruit has his goals set high when he arrives in Buffalo in fall of 2019.

“I want to win MAC Championships and Bowl games. I want to be an All-American and learn all I can from a great coaching staff so I can get to the next level.”

Faqua is a 3 Star prospect ranked the 39th best prospect in Michigan according to Midwest Prep Lounge and picked Buffalo over some “bigger” schools such as Syracuse, Iowa State, and Temple.
