NOTE: Due to the high volume of teams and the lineman camp happening at the same time, we did not get to see every team perform.
Grand Blanc (MI) has a very talented roster full of potential college players. Safety Jordan Fields had a very nice day both at his natural position and wide receiver. He has excellent ball skills and good speed. He's a very good player.
Their linebackers are good as well. Rising senior Lester Liston has good size and underrated speed. His counterpart, class of 2013 prospect Luke Maclean has collegiate size and ability. He will be a top recruit in his year.
Their receiving corps is lead by smaller, but quick Terrance Dye, sure handed playmaker Tearon Jameson and long, athletic Clarence Turner.
Warren DeLaSalle's QB Shane Morris, a Michigan commitment, had a very good day. A rising junior, Morris has elite arm strength and his receivers did have some trouble catching his passes. He throws a fantastic deep ball, able to get passes deep without lofting them too much. His teammate, cornerback Justin Browning, is shorter, but a good, aggressive player.
Another Michigan commitment, linebacker James Ross was in the tournament and did well moving in space and dropping into coverage.
One linebacker who may end up being battled over by schools is Brother Rice rising junior Jon Reschke. He's a nicely built kid who can run and cover. He already has an offer from Toledo.
Teammate Devin Church is shorter, but well put together and makes a lot of plays. The same goes for cornerback Eddie Kidd, who is shorter, but a good cover man. Safety James Hendrix, who is longer than those two, has a chance at some Division-1 offers as well. Tight end Joe Warner has a Buffalo offer, and is a nice pass catcher with a solid frame.
Flint Northwestern has a talented roster. Wide receiver Michael Henry deserves the attention he is getting. He's explosive, good after the catch, and has excellent ball skills. His partner in crime, Richard Byrd is a taller, 6'2 kid with solid ball skills. Rising junior quarterback DeMarcus Johnson is one to watch. He has a good ball and decent size at 6'2. He spins it well, he just needs to be more consistent with accuracy and placement.
Fort Wayne Bishop Luers again looked good in a 7 on 7 event. Quarterback James Knapke had a good day. He threw a few nice deep balls and showed off the quick release and arm strength that has him creating a buzz this summer. We'd like to see him make quicker reads at times, but when the ball leaves his hand, everyone can see why he is a Division-1 prospect.
Linebacker Jaylon Smith is a hot name because of his athleticism and his recent string of offers. He is very athletic and good in coverage. The one to watch in that class though, is Mike Rogers, a playmaking wide receiver who needs to be more consistent, but has D1 talent.
Plainfield North has a couple lesser known prospects with big talent. Quest Young is a good sized wide receiver-defensive back who can go up and get it and is well put together. His teammate, Alex Starks, is a good athlete who could play receiver or be a rover type in college.
Bay City Western QB Austin Pichotino impressed us with his ability to spin the ball and get it into tight spots today. He is shorter, so he may end up in the D2 or 1-AA ranks, but he has great arm talent.
Clarkston's Matt Dellinger, a linebacker and wide receiver, is a playmaker who might be a little undersized for backer, but is a good player.
