TrieuProspectBlog: In-State Sleepers

In this week's blog, we take a look at several players flying under the radar, who we think won't be such unknowns for long.

Kason Dickerson – WR – Detroit Northwestern
Dickerson has great size (6'2, 175) and didn't see a ton of balls come his way last season, but finished strong with an 8 catch, 109 yard game against Cass Tech.

Erik Radzilowksi – G – Birmingham Groves
On a team that has quite a bit of talent, Radzilwoski can sometimes go unnoticed, but his size (6'3, 300) and intensity on the field (this kid blocks until the whistle) will have him going to a Division 1 school.

Andrew Hall – LB – Detroit Cooley
A big thumper who could play inside or SAM at the next level (or maybe even become a defensive end), Hall is simply a kid I would want in my front 7. He's a sure tackler with pretty good instincts.

Robert Banaskaz – QB – Rockford
He hasn't gotten much of a chance to show his stuff yet, but every time he's seen the field, Banaszak has impressed with his arm. The big 6'4 passer has good athleticism to go along with size and should make the most of having the starting job all to himself this year.

Andrew Plaska – RB/FB – Zeeland West
It isn't just the Wing-T system with Plaska, he has exceptional speed and acceleration. He really hits the hole well and can make one cut and get upfield quickly. He is undersized (6'0, 175), but I think he could play tailback or safety at the next level. With the Dux graduating two backs, he'll be the one they lean on this year, he was already their big play guy a year ago.

Charles Hollowell – RB/WR – Detroit Renaissance
He's begun to break onto the national scene after a good Scout.com combine in Cincinnati, but after seeing some film on Hollowell, I'm pretty impressed as well. He has great quickness and change of direction ability and has also shown the hands to project as a slot receiver as well.

Steve Winston – DE – Muskegon Heights
This 6'3, 240 edge rusher is a disruptive force. After a solid sophomore season where he tallied 35 tackles and 5 sacks, Winston had 89 tackles and 13 sacks as a junior, now bigger and faster, he's primed for an even more dominant senior campaign.
