Cedric Everson Keeping Options Open

Detroit Mumford cornerback Cedric Everson may not have garnered some of the recognition that his in-state counterparts have, but it is becoming more and more clear that his name should be mentioned in the same breath. The 5-11, 170 pound athlete used his impressive speed (4.4 in the 40, 21.5 in the 200m, and 47.9 in the 400m) to help him turn an outstanding season from his corner position last year. GoBlueWolverine caught up with him recently to find out where things stand in his recruitment.
