Running Back - Warren Central (Ind.)
The diminutive Bell has a staggering 840 yards and eight touchdowns in four games and against some pretty good competition. At 5'8, 175-lbs, his size may scare off some, but he is strong and elusive. If he can continue this pace, more and more colleges should take note. A number of schools have requested the early season tape, but Western Kentucky appears most interested at the moment.
Quarterback - Montini Catholic (Ill.)
After not even being the starter last year, Pechloff has begun this season on a torrid pace, completing 68% of his passes for nearly 800 yards and 10 touchdowns in the three games. What makes that more impressive is that in all of those games, Pechloff was either pulled or the team stopped passing because they were ahead. Last week , he passed for 377 yards and five touchdowns in ONE HALF against perennial power D.C. Everest from Wisconsin. He has been invited to games at Illinois, Western Michigan, Eastern Illinois and Western Illinois. At 6'6, he has great size and is showing this year that he can do it on the field. He is a project, but from these performances, we can see he is farther along than many thought before since he had yet to play many meaningful minutes prior to this season.
Running Back - Ovid-Elsie (Mich.)
Robinson rushed for 2,844 yards last season, so his early season performance should not be too surprising, but given that every team came into this year focusing on stopping him, it is impressive. In three games, Robinson has rushed for 539 yards and 10 touchdowns. At 6'0, 205-lbs, he has good size, the only question is level of competition. Big Ten colleges like Michigan and Michigan State have invited him to games (he attended the WMU-UM game) and several MAC schools remain in contact. While Robinson does not have an offer yet, he is being closely followed by these schools and there is a good chance for him to earn that offer before Signing Day.
