Northern Invasion

Several Detroit King High School standouts will invade Morgantown later this month as West Virginia closes out its summer camp slate.

An assembly of Detroit King football players will continue making their rounds on the summer camp circuit in July, and plan to take in West Virginia’s final camp of 2014 later this month. The group is headlined by a trio of rising juniors — some looking to build on their offer sheet while another hopes to earn their first.

Jesse Johnson

Class of 2016 cornerback Jesse Johnson (pictured above) currently boasts offers from Toledo and Illinois — and is hoping a strong camp performance will solidify an offer from the Mountaineers.

Johnson (5’11, 180 lbs.) plays physically and could transition into a safety at the next level. He’s strong enough to play up along the line of scrimmage but his greatest trait is his ability in the open field.

Dontre Boyd

Searching for his first official offer, Boyd has hit the camp circuit in effort to make a name for himself. As a sophomore, Boyd played behind Pitt signees Avonte Maddox but hopes to see full-time action this season.

Boyd, 5-foot-10, 160 pounds, is a lockdown corner who has a superb combination of size and speed. On offense, he’s elusive in the open field and excels returning kicks on special teams.

Mikale Washington

Washington, 6-foot-3, 185-pound quarterback, throws the ball with ease and makes every throw. He possesses an excellent frame to build on and is just as comfortable outside of the pocket as he is inside.

Several top programs have begun to show significant interest including West Virginia, Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin and Iowa.

BlueGoldNews.com will continue to provide updates on these prospects following the conclusion of camp.
