Sound Mind Sound Body: Skill Position Preview

Midwest Regional Manager
Posted Jun 14, 2010

Wayne State University will host the Sound Mind Sound Body camp, which will have some of the Midwest's top prospects, along with college coaches from across the country, NFL players, and more.

84 college coaches, including ones from seven Big Ten schools will head to Wayne State on Thursday for the Sound Mind, Sound Body camp, one of the best camps in the entire country.

These college coaches serve as both life and football coaches at the two day event, keynote speakers, and they will have a chance to see some really great talent.

The quarterbacks will be lead by underclassmen. Detroit Crockett's Brian Blackburn is a 6'5 kid with solid athleticism and a good arm. He still has developing to do, but he offers a lot of upside.

Warren De La Salle's Shane Morris is just coming out of his freshman year, but showed his potential during the year and in camps this off-season. He has been pegged as one of the bright young prospects in the state of Michigan. Saginaw High's Travontis Richardson is raw, but he's a 6'3 kid with athleticism, who has a chance to really put himself on the college radar this weekend.

The top senior prospect of the group is Cass Tech's Keith Moore, who is not the biggest kid, but is accurate and smart with the football. He currently holds an offer from Howard.

Two commits will help lead the running backs and wide receivers. Michigan commit Shawn Conway is one of the top wide receivers attending, and Michigan State commit Onaje Miller is the top running back recruit attending.

Saginaw four-star receiver DeAnthony Arnett always makes a splash at each and every camp he attends, and this should be no different.

Other wide receivers to watch include Ashton Gaines has two offers, and the Detroit Crockett product is one of the best pure football players in the state. Flint Southwestern's Kendrick Roberts is a kid we are excited to see. He's a 6'2, well put together kid with excellent ball skills. He has two offers as well, and like Gaines, is poised to add more.

Cass Tech's Kishon Wilcher, one of the state's fastest players, holds an offer from Howard, and now that he is fully concentrating on the slot position, has a chance to really impress here. Minnetonka's Austin Harrington is smart, sure handed, and capable of making tough grabs look easy. That is part of the reason Ball State has offered the Minnetonka (Minn.) product. Ball State has also offered Highland Park's speedy Jermal Hosley, who will be in attendance.

There are a few 2011 prospects looking for offers who will have a chance to earn them here. Warren Woods (Mich.) Tower's Rayshawn Nance is one to watch. At 6'3, 205-lbs, he has great size and is ready to have a breakout performance. Jalyn Massenburg (Detroit Central, Mich.), Darryl Flemister (Detroit Southeastern, Mich.), and DeQuante Humphery (Detroit Ketterking, Mich.) are three others who are looking for their first offer.

Underclassmen to watch include Cass Tech's Ruben Lile and Madison Heights Madison's Danny Larkins.

Of the running backs, the two rising seniors with an offer is Southfield's tough, compact, Daevon Robinson, and Lake Orion's Marques Stevenson. However, players like Brother Rice's Devin Church, Dearborn Fordson's Rabeah Beydoun, and Inkster's DaShawn Bell, will be looking to change that.

The underclassmen will be lead by Detroit King's tough and speedy Dennis Norfleet, who appears to be on the verge of his first offers. Detroit Crockett's bruising 6'1, 222-lb Marcellous McElrath is another to remember.

There are also a number of high profile players who could end up coming out. It is still not too late to register. Go to for more information and registration.
