Adidas Maximum Exposure Preview

Midwest Regional Manager
Posted Dec 12, 2011

Last year, this early event in Detroit brought out a lot of eventual Division-1 talents, and this year should be more of the same. Here is a look.

Maximum Exposure has been helping kids across the state of Michigan with just that, "exposure" over the last few years and last Winter's early event proved to be the starting point for many youngsters who would go on to earn scholarship offers over the course of the next year.

This year, the event, sponsored by Adidas, has moved to the Pontiac Silverdome, the largest indoor football facility in the Midwest, and will feature speed testing, 7 on 7 tryouts, 1 on 1s and position specific training.

The cost in advance is only $30. Walk-ups are $40 and organizers say the will probably sell out.

Among the expected attendees is a good group of quarterbacks. Michigan commit Shane Morris is the top quarterback prospect in the state for 2013, Sturgis' Chance Stewart is poised to earn that spot in 2014, and Detroit Cass Tech freshman Jayru Campbell has an early line at that spot in the 2015 class after leading his team to a state title this year. Manchester's Nate Bossory is a junior that has many Division-1 schools interested as well.

The defensive backs are a talented bunch as well. Detroit Cass Tech's Jourdan Lewis already holds a Division-1 offer (Toledo). His teammate, safety Delano Hill is possibly the best player in the state that no one talks about. Detroit Douglass' Demetrius Stinson is another that had a strong junior season, and Holland's versatile Corey Willis, who played all over the field this year, will be eager to show what he can do at receiver and corner. Detroit Crockett's Desmond King, a ballhawk with 16 interceptions in two seasons, rounds out the group.

The big guys will be out too. Canton's dominating Cameron Dillard will be in attendance along with Detroit Crockett's two-way star Jalen Dandridge, Detroit Country Day's athletic Poet Thomas, and Southfield's 6'5, 290-lb Colin Buchanan.

The linebacker group is lead by Luke Maclean, who holds a Buffalo offer, Grosse Pointe South's hard hitting Jack Doyle, and Farmington Hills Harrison's precocious sophomore Gary Hosey.

The running backs and receivers have a couple big names, including two Michigan legacy recruits, Southfield receiver Brandon Bean and Chelsea running back Berkley Edwards. Potentially the state's best sophomore, Farmington Hills Harrison's Lorenzo Collins is also slated to be in attendance. Detroit Crockett junior tight end Khalid Hill is another Division-1 prospect that will be in the dome.
