Top 200 Seniors: 130-121

We're on our way from 200 to 1 as we rank the state's top senior recruits. A couple of Dream Teamers are in our next ten today as well as several athletes with FBS offers.

130 Marikese Powell DT Jackson
Big man (6'2, 356) and has athleticism and quickness off the ball, but needs to be in better shape.
129 DJ Robinson RB Baldwin
Often overlooked, but is is a shifty runner who had over 1000 yards and 16 touchdowns as a senior.
128 Luther Ware RB Bay City Central
Part of a great Wolves backfield, Ware is tough and instinctive and has some MAC interest
127 Chinedum Umachi OT Detroit Renaissance
Also could play tight end or defensive end, he is a fine athlete who is still learning the game but has high upside.
126 DeShawn Hayes RB Saginaw Heritage
He has been on the radar for a couple years now. He runs tougher than his size and has decent speed.
125 DaQuante Caviness LB Muskegon Heights
Big and athletic, Caviness was a LB for Heights, but projects to DE at the next level. Needs to dedicate himself to the weight room and conditioning though.
124 Dean Roberts DE Chelsea
A three year starter, Roberts is strong against the run and is a good penetrator into the backfield.
123 Darryl Stinson DE Jackson
A basketball player playing football, the 6'7, 230-lber has great upside and has an offer from Eastern Michigan already.
122 Andrew Hall LB Detroit Cooley
One of the underapprecaited players in the state, he had an incredible 184 tackles, 18 sacks and 3 INTs as a senior. Indiana leads for him right now.
121 Matthew Forward G Zeeland West
Absolutely dominating run blocker, but has no experience as a pass blocker. If he were taller than 6'1, he'd be a high level recruit, as it stands, GVSU looks like a likley destination.
       


THE PREVIOUS ENTRIES
200 Keaton Wolfe QB Martin
Excelled on varsity for the past three seasons. Tall kid (6'4) with a decent arm. Looking like he will be a D2 or D3 player.
199 Marc Walker RB Forest Hills Eastern
In a school not yet known for its football prowess, Walker lead the team to respectability. He is a solid athlete who could play RB or DB at the next level.
198 Tovalas Allaway WR Muskegon
Often overlooked because of the skill talent Muskegon has, Allaway is a solid route runner with very sure hands. The only knock is that he lacks great speed.
197 David Bellomy G/DT Detroit Cass Tech
Bellomy has been a solid performer for the Technicians. Starting both ways, he is stout and tough. He just lacks the great size that would project him to the next level.
196 Stavon Owens DE Highland Park
Owens is a relentless player who is a terror off the edge. Unfortunately he doesn't have great size, but he is a pure football player who should find a home at some school next year.
195 Bryan Greisen QB Hudsonville
Tough to make the list when you don't play, but Greisen was so impressive over the summer, he still has colleges after him even though Casey Blackport was the starter.
194 Jake Bentley LB Grandville
The next in the line of many Bentleys to come through Grandville, Jake is much like the others, tough and with a nose for the ball.
193 Chaz Willis CB Portage Central
Willis is a good athlete who has played a variety of roles for his team. He is best suited as a defensive back in college though.
192 Cameron Nabors WR Rochester
Nabors is quick and runs good routes. The only knock on him has been his size, but he has toughness despite his slight frame. He should be a solid D2 receiver.
191 Durwin Bateman LB Detroit Southeastern
Bateman doesn't have ideal height, but he finds the ball and is a sure tackler. D2 schools like Wayne State have been recruiting him.
       

190 Teddy Frommann FB Portage Northern
Tough, physical lead blocker type who has also shown some ability at linebacker and could play either spot.
189 Jared Cowan QB Davison
Not the biggest guy, but can throw on the move and has made good decisions and won a lot of games over the course of his career.
188 Antone Smith-Guise RB Flint Hamady
Smaller back, but is quick and can catch the ball out of the backfield. GVSU is among the interested parties.
187 Nathaniel Hardy WR New Haven
Versatile player, good open field runner, he just doesn't have size, but he could be a slot receiver/return man in college.
186 Julian Wyatt WR Southfield
Blazingly fast in a straight line, someone will have use for that speed...
185 Brandon Wilkerson CB Inkster
Had a solid year after transferring from Cass, Wilkerson isn't the biggest guy, but he is mentally tough and is a solid cover man.
184 Jamarcus Martin WR/DB Mona Shores
Martin is a good athlete with good size (6'2, 180), he must find a true position at the next level, but has the talent to do so.
183 Cal Blair QB East Grand Rapids
Did well in his only year as a starter this season, he has good size and can really throw the ball.
182 Michael Hollern QB Holt
Smart and efficient and also mobile, Hollern should be a solid D2 pickup.
181 Ramal Roby CB Muskegon
He was a standout for Heights, then was in and out of the lineup this year, but he is a good athlete with some upside potential.
       

180 Jarvis McKinley CB Muskegon
Very underrated, McKinley has good size and speed and could be a real steal for some MAC or D2 school.
179 Emilio DeFoe WR Detroit Northwestern
Kason Dickerson, Martez James and Anthony Hollis grabbed all the headlines, but DeFoe simply grabbed anything that was thrown his way.
178 Justin Scott OT Detroit Southeastern
Has great size...improved steadily as senior year went on, if the light goes on, he could be a surprise in college.
177 Nick Thomas WR/DB Birmingham Brother Rice
Thomas is a versatile player who could be a wide receiver or a safety in college. He has high football I.Q. and is tough and competitive.
176 Tom Medick OT Grosse Ile
Big (6'7, 275) and powerful, Medick has a number of MAC schools as well as GVSU hot on his trail.
175 Dominic Cundari OT Traverse City West
A part of an outstanding line at West along with Darren Keyton and Rocko Khoury, Cundari is a tough, hard nosed blocker in his own right.
174 Al Soltis DT/G Warren Cousino
This big man (6'4, 275) could play on either side of the ball in college, but has lots of experience and is a good athlete for his size.
173 Eric Marchall WR Detroit Cody
Didn't get a lot of attention, but has good size (6'4, 185) and solid hands.
172 Mohammed Bazzy QB Dearborn Fordson
Good tools, wasn't featured too much in the offense, but is big and intelligent and worth developing as a prospect.
171 Stephen Patterson S Highland Park
A confident player who is a good tackler, he doesn't have ideal size, but he makes up for it with his toughness .
       

170 Omar Haynes WR Muskegon Heights
Started late as he didn't play football until this season, but has size (6'3, 190), athleticism and attitude.
169 Andrew Plaska RB Zeeland West
Was it the system? Partly, but Plaksa racked up a ton of yardage over his career. He has great speed and can make cuts at full speed.
168 Jason Semmes DE Orchard Lake St. Mary's
Plays defensive end, but could project to linebacker, Semmes has some Big Ten and MAC interest as well as GVSU.
167 Michael Elias SS/LB Ann Arbor Huron
Elias should grow into a linebacker in college. He is a good athlete who has shown ability in coverage and is a solid form tackler.
166 Damon Chisolm WR Southfield
Chisolm has fabulous speed and acceleration, but he must add weight if he is to excel in college.
165 Tony Iacovoni LB/DE Grand Rapids West Catholic
At 6'2, 220, he could play either end or linebacker in college. He has a nose for the ball and a good motor. Western Michigan and GVSU are among the schools in pursuit.
164 Derrick Coker WR Inkster
A good athlete who can make plays after the catch...needs to continue to add size and strength.
163 Derek Allen OT Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills
A big man (6'5, 315), Allen has had MAC and D2 interest. He has the size, but must continue to improve technically.
162 Kirk Deering QB/DB Grand Rapids West Catholic
A very good high school quarterback, Deering projects more as a defensive back at the next level. MAC and D2 schools have taken note of his athleticism.
161 Xam Kuu OT Inkster
A big player (6'6, 290) with athleticism, Kuu hasn't gotten too much attention yet, but he could be a steal as a recruit.
       
160 Jordan Kelly LB Detroit Renaissance
Kelly is a big wide receiver (and a good one), but really turned it on defensively as a senior and is looking like he'll be a collegiate LB.
159 Calix Sholander P Crystal Falls Forest Park
He had a 62-yard punt last season and was strong again this year as a senior. He has a nice leg and did a good job as PK as well this season.
158 Derek Kingshott S Zeeland West
A great athlete with good size, Kingshott is also a basketball recruit, but his potential on the gridiron is high as well. GVSU is among the schools interested.
157 David Burton CB Flint Central
Undersized (5'8, 155), but quick and competitive, Burton has some MAC and D2 interest as well as some 1-AAs.
156 Gerald Scarber WR Farmington Hills Harrison
A transfer from Southfield, Scarber has been known for making some tough catches. He has decent size and speed as well.
155 Branko Hamilton QB Troy
An experienced, tough leader and also a tough runner, the only real knock on Branko is his height (6'0).
154 Trevor Stapleton RB Birmingham Seaholm
A solid runner with good patience and a decent burst, Stapleton may grow into a fullback at the next level.
153 Erik Radzilowski G Birmingham Groves
A big kid (6'3, 300) with a mean streak, he has had some Big Ten interest.
152 Nathaniel Justice OT Detroit Crockett
Massive (6'5, 315), but not always motivated. EMU and Toledo are possible destinations. Could be big time if he worked at it.
151 Jonathan Lamb TE Southfield
A nice athlete with decent size (6'3, 239), he could be an H-Back type in college.
       
150 Ricky Shorkey LB Clinton Twp Chippewa Valley
Athletic linebacker, needs to add weight, but has speed and the abilty to drop in coverage. Western Michigan, Grand Valley and others are interested.
149 Nevin Shearer G/DT Dearborn
Technically sound kid who has started for three seasons. Could play on either side of the ball, but likely will be on offense.
148 Tony Fountain WR Whitehall
A fine athlete who could play cornerback as well. Has great speed and hands. Just needs to add weight, but he's a playmaker.
147 Zach Fortier LB Spring Lake
Has had some interest from Big Ten and MAC schools. Tough, instinctive backer who made a lot of tackles as a senior.
146 Aaron Shavers QB Inkster
Not the biggest guy, but he has speed, quickness and threw the ball well on the run. Which position will he play in college? That's the question.
145 Craig Sacha QB Farmington Hills Harrison
Smart, efficient signal caller, arm strength is why he isn't ranked higher as a prospect.
144 Raylen Davis RB Royal Oak
Has an Air Force offer and some MAC interest...a bigger back with decent speed.
143 Tevin Kellum CB Detroit Northwestern
Very skinny (6'0, 155), but a good athlete who can play man to man. Has MAC and Big Ten interest.
142 Amery Allen LB Detroit Crockett
Very productive player who made tackles all over the field, but at 6'0, 190, he'll have to bulk up or move to strong safety.
141 James Williams RB Battle Creek Central
Simply didn't get opportunities with Bill Young and Larry Caper, but Williams is quick and fast and could be a steal for some lucky college.
       
140 Tyler Mills WR Mount Pleasant
Big bodied kid (6'3, 190) who really uses his frame well and can go up and get the ball.
139 Phillip Mayberry RB GR Ottawa Hills
Big back who has been very productive. Power runner who has MAC and Big Ten schools contacting him.
138 Jordan Bass WR Detroit Mumford
Good size (6'2, 190) and can play both receiver and safety. Has MAC possibilities as well as Grand Valley and Saginaw Valley.
137 Dominique White RB Orchard Lake St. Mary's
Came up big for the Eaglets several times this season. Small, but able to run between the tackles with his quickness, GVSU and other spread offenses are taking note.
136 Julan Easterly CB Detroit Cass Tech
Good size (5'11, 180) and excellent closing speed and quickness. Needs a lot of technique work, but the ability is there. Indiana and other Big Ten schools are doing their homework on him.
135 Grant Caserta LB Holland West Ottawa
A tackling machine who always seems to be in the right place at the right time.
134 Paul Gyrmati LB Birmingham Brother Rice
Another backer who seems to just rack up the tackles, Gyrmati is looking at a couple of MAC schools.
133 Kyle Jackson C Muskegon Heights
Very strong pivot man with the ideal, squatty build for a center and a powerful lower body.
132 Charles Fobbs LB Detroit Cass Tech
A solid athlete whose style is best suited for the middle, but he must add some size and strength to do so.
131 Scott MacLeod OT Warren DeLa Salle
Big kid (6'8, 290) who moves decently well for his size. Has an Eastern Michigan offer and may pick up a couple more before its over.
