DEARBORN, Mich. - - Detroit Cass Tech, Dearborn Fordson (Mich.), Oak Park (Mich.) and River Rouge (Mich.), all hooked up for a friendly 7v7 scrimmage Tuesday. Here are some players notes from Tuesday's action.

2015 RB Mike Weber, Detroit Cass Tech – Known for his downhill running style, Weber showcased his pass catching skills Tuesday. On the first play of scrimmage he took a skinny post for a touchdown down the middle of the field. At 5-foot-10, 205-pounds, Weber looks stronger and faster out on the field. He was able to make defenders miss and should be a nice weapon out of the backfield for the Technicians this season.

2014 CB Damon Webb, Detroit Cass Tech—Arguably the best player in the state, Webb lived up to his high four-star status Tuesday. He is turning into to quite the cover corner. He had three interceptions on the afternoon and first interception was pure text book, as he read the quarterbacks eyes and undercut the receiver for the pick across the middle of the defense. He did his thing at WR, too. Webb is a playmaker and should have a huge senior season.

2015 QB Jayru Campball, Detroit Cass Tech – The junior gunslinger is heading into his third year as the as the starting quarterback for Cass Tech, and you see the improved play in his overall technique as a passer on the field. His arm is stronger. His footwork is better. He has turned into quite the leader, too. Campbell threw some nice deep balls' and had multiple touchdowns in the three-game scrimmage. A huge junior season is in store.

2015 RB/DB John Kelly, Oak Park (Mich.) High – Kelly is the best player on Oak Park. He will be their workhorse at running back this season and expects to start at corner or safety. He recently received his first offer from Western Michigan, who want him to play running back at the next level. He projects more as DB for a BCS programs, and showed why Tuesday, as he made multiple plays batting down passes and blanketing receivers. Kelly is track guy, too. So he has blazing speed and is great athlete. He has an upcoming trip to Ohio State and has already been on a visit to Michigan. He is a guy to remember moving forward.

2016 WR Demetric Vance, Detroit Cass Tech – At 6-foot-2, 180-pounds, Vance is expected to be the No. 1 WR this season for Cass Tech. He certainly has the skill set to be that guy. He made some plays on the outside and has the speed to be an good wide receiver. He'll need to work on catching the ball more consistently but it's not a major issue. The potential is there.

2017 WR Donavan Peoples-Jones, Detroit Cass Tech—The future is now and it's Peoples-Jones. Well you might have to wait a little bit before he becomes a household name, but the Cass coaching staff loves this kids potential. As far as raw talent, he might end up being a big time recruit when it's all said and done. He's fast. He can go up and get the ball. He will play a lot as a freshman this season. Physically he has a lot of you're looking for in a wide receiver. He is definitely a name to keep an eye on.

2017 QB Rodney Hall, Detroit Cass Tech—The young signal caller is full of potential and will most likely start on JV this season. He looks like the heir apparent to Campbell. He showed good poise in the pocket and was able to make some nice throws down the field. He will need to work on his arm strength and accuracy. But that will come with time, as he is only heading into his freshman season.
