Michigan Defensive Ends Pulling in the Offers

Several talented in-state edge players have drawn in interest from teams in the Midwest and have earned recent offers. Here are updates on who they are and which schools have come calling for help getting to the quarterback.

Even though he has only played football for one year, Detroit Southeastern's Ricky Sprat has been impressive at camps and combines. This boxer translates his skills from the ring to the gridiron well and he was rewarded for that as head coach Deon Godfrey has reported to MichiganVarsity.com that Sprat has received offers from Bowling Green and Toledo. Spart was impressive at Scout's Chicago combine and should only get better as he learns the game.

Jackson's Darryl Stinson is a raw player, but he has great size (6'7, 240) and his athletic ability (also a good basketball player) gives him tremendous upside at the next level. The Eastern Michigan Eagles saw that and have offered him a scholarship, his first offer so far.

Looking for a great edge rusher? We've mentioned him before, but Steve Winston is one of the state's best and this week, he received a Central Michigan offer and also could be close to offers from Western Michigan and Michigan State. A blur off the edge, Winston has been unblockable at the camps we've seen him at so far and has also racked up over 100 tackles and 18 sacks in the last two seasons. He is looking like he'll pull in several Big Ten offers eventually.
