Michigan Countdown: Players 30-21

Michigan Insider is nearing the end of its countdown of the top 100 recruits in the state of Michigan. Today, we start down the home stretch with players 30-21.

30 – Chris Rucker – CB – Detroit Country Day (5'8, 165)
Rucker is undersized, but lightning quick and can stick to receivers in man on man coverage. He is headed to Michigan State where he will remind Spartan fans of former MSU corner Jaren Hayes.

29 – Darius Johnson – RB – Highland Park (5'11, 215)
Johnson is a very productive back whose size and strength could project to linebacker at Indiana.

28 – Ryan Wheat – G/DT – Flint Carman-Ainsworth (6'4, 300)
A tough kid with good strength, Wheat will have a good opportunity to see some early playing time at Michigan State. He projects best as a guard, but could play along the defensive line as well.

27 – George White – DE/LB – Flint Carman-Ainsworth (6'3, 245)
White is a big, strong player who could play linebacker or grow into a defensive end at the next level. He should be a good fit at Missouri where he is in the mold of past Tiger defensive ends.

26 – Kaunda Hancock – WR – Birmingham Brother Rice (6'0, 180)
Hancock was a standout defensive back as well for the Warriors, but his athletic ability and hands will make him a top receiver prospect for Toledo.

25 – Mark Huyge – G/T – Grand Rapids Catholic Central (6'6, 280)
Huyge is a big, athletic kid who is raw but Michigan saw enough upside potential to offer him a scholarship. He played tackle in high school but could project to guard in college.

24 – Ashton Leggett – RB/FB – Muskegon (5'11, 225)
Leggett had a great senior season rushing for nearly 2000 yards. He is a big bruiser with surprisingly nimble feet for a big man. Heading to Michigan State, Leggett will be a TJ Duckett/Jehuu Caulcrick type back for the Spartans.

23 – Raymond Huston – WR – Detroit Urban Lutheran (6'2, 175)
An athletic receiver who can go up and get the ball, Huston should get plenty of opportunities to makes plays in Bowling Green's wide open passing attack.

22 – Justin Siller – QB – Orchard Lake St. Mary's (6'4, 190)
An accurate passer who can make plays on the run as well, Siller should be a fine player for Purdue once he improves mechanically.

21 – Kirk Cousins – QB – Holland Christian (6'2, 190)
Cousins is an outstanding prospect who did not receive the attention he deserved during the regular season. He is a smart passer with outstanding accuracy. He must improve his decision making, but once he gets more experience he could be the starter at Michigan State.
