Michigan Varsity News Roundup

The MAC schools were busy in Michigan this past week as a couple of the state's best received new offers. For the latest on them and other scattered news and notes, check out this week's roundup.

Buffalo Extends a New Offer
The Buffalo Bulls were in Michigan this past week and one of their stops was at Holt High School. Defensive Backs coach Matt House stopped by and extended an offer to their OT Austin Holtz. Holtz now has two offers, one from the Bulls and the other from Eastern Michigan. Buffalo also offered Birmingham Groves ATH Bruce Horner this week.

WMU Sends Out Two New Offers
The Western Michigan Broncos were also busy during the past few weeks. They stayed on the west side of the state and offered two of the west's best players. Gobles WR/DB Jake Newton and Traverse City OT Rocko Khoury were both offered full scholarships to Western Michigan. For both players, it was their first offer.

Jackson Staying Put
Recent rumors had Allendale's star junior Hersey Jackson possibly transferring. Local scuttlebutt suggested that the star RB/LB might be looking at a bigger school like East Grand Rapids or Eask Kentwood, but sources have told Michigan Varsity that simply isn't the case the Jackson will be toting the rock for the Falcons and only the Falcons next fall.

EGR's New QB Turning Heads
Even with the loss of QB DeMarcus Grady (Northern Illinois commit), the East Grand Rapids Pioneers are looking good under center. Michigan Varsity first spotted Cal Blair last summer at 7-7s and kept an eye on him ever since. With Grady taking the snaps last season, Blair played some Tight End, but will be the starting quarterback this year. Word from those close to the program is that Blair has made great progress and may be the Pioneers' best pure passer in some time. With the Demarcus Grady era only one year removed, that's saying something. Blair will be a senior this fall and if he performs on the field as well as he has in workouts, the 6'2, 210-lber will draw some serious recruiting interest.
