Saros on Record Setting Pace

Grosse Point South wide receiver Jimmy Saros is one of the Great Lakes State’s more productive wideouts. Now going into the spring of his junior year, the recruiting interest Saros is receiving from MAC and Big Ten schools is increasing.

The colleges have come calling for Grosse Point South receiver Jimmy Saros, and with good reason. But early attention is nothing new for the sure handed receiver, he was pulled up from the freshman team to varsity late in his first high school season. Since then, he has been a two way starter for the Blue Devils. "I didn't really think I would make as big of an impact as I did," Saros said of his 67 catch sophomore season, his first full year on the varisty, "I was expecting to make some impact though cause we didn't have a running game." That was just a warm-up act for his junior year though as Saros turned in an outstanding junior season which notched him 1st team All-State and All-Conference honors. For the year, he had 986 yards, 11 TDs receiving and even chipped in a 75-yard score as a punt returner. His 75 receptions put him at 5th all time in the state for receptions and another 70 as a senior will give him the record. All those statistics along with sure hands and good size (6'3, 175 lbs) has made Saros the object of affection for several schools. He reports a top five of Michigan State, Northwestern, Purdue, Michigan and Ohio State. Along with those five, several other Big Ten and MAC schools will be camp stops for Saros this summer. "I'll be going to the Purdue junior day this weekend," Saros reported, "ichigan invited me to their camp, I'm going to stop by there for a day, I'm going to go to Michigan State's camp, Northwestern's and a lot of MAC schools, Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan and Notre Dame too." An excellent student with a 3.75 GPA, academics will be a key part of the school Saros chooses, "First and foremost will be the education that I'm going to get, then it will be how I like the coaching staff," What will not necessarily be important is immediate playing time, "I wouldn't mind red-shirting a year, but I'd want to play by my sophomore season." Saros feels that once his travel schedule is over with and all the factors have been considered, he won't have to wait too much longer to make a decision. "I'd like to have a pretty good decision made by mid-summer." MichiganInsider will have junior highlights of Saros up in the coming up weeks.
