Michael Hoping To Return
When Lexington junior quarterback Collin Michael went down earlier this season with a knee injury against North Canton Hoover, it was thought his season was over, but it appears this top prospect might be able to play again this season. Michael, 6-foot-5, 215-pounds, has been touted as one of the top quarterback prospects in Ohio for the class of 2012 since he started playing varsity football as a freshman, backing up Courtney Avery. He also attended, and impressed, at the Scout Combine in Cincinnati in 2008. "I definitely tore my ACL against North Canton, and I'm going to need surgery at some point," Michael stated. "I'm hoping to be able to put it off until after the season, and still play this year, but I just don't know yet. It's disappointing because we were off to a great start and I was playing well." Michael is drawing recruiting attention of several top BCS programs, and he has taken three unofficial visits this year to watch teams and meet the coaches. "I'm hearing from a lot of schools right now," he explained. "I think I've heard from every Big Ten school except Michigan State. I'm also hearing from LSU, which is huge, and a lot of other top programs. I'm really unsure of where I want to go, and I do not have any offers yet." "I have visited Bowling Green, Cincinnati and Indiana so far, and I liked all three schools a lot," he added. "I'm going to visit Michigan this week, and I'm pretty excited about that, because I have a teammate playing there in Courtney Avery. He likes it a lot up there, so it will be good to see the school and see Courtney again." Scout.com will continue to update Michael's health status, and will report any change in his playing condition. Lexington is 4-2 and on target to make the playoffs.
