Lakers Doing Well Out of State

Several players from out of state are set to join the Lakers. Meet some of the new faces right here.

The 2011 class is going to have a little more of an out of state flavor than past years. Grand Valley State has recently earned commitments from a few talented players from outside state lines.

Indiana has been good to the Lakers. Churubusco running back Kyle Mathewson, who at one time had a Ball State offer, kicked it off. Since then, two others have followed.

Concord offensive tackle Coty Brown is 6-8, 265-lbs and athletic for that size. If Vaparaiso wide receiver Dan Hummel name sounds familar, that's because his brother Robbie Hummel is a basketball star at Purdue. The younger Hummel is a 6-5 wide receiver who caught 26 passes for 481 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior.

We are hearing there is a good chance Brebauf Jesuit athlete J.D. Robinson also joins the class, which would make four from the Hoosier State.

GVSU has always had a few Illinois kids and this year, they picked up Lincoln Way West safety Kevin Kintzel, who held a Western Illinois offer. He has good size at 6-1, 195-lbs and could play other positions if safety does not work out.

A big pickup was Plainfield South running back Dondre Adams. The 5-11, 180-lb Adams was considered a Division-1 prospect by many analysts. He averaged a whopping 16 yards a carry as a senior while accumulating 1,026 yards.

The Lakers have also landed an Ohio product, Willoughby South wide receiver Aaron Lindgren, who will be a preferred walk-on.
