|William Gholston - DE - Detroit Southeastern
When we saw Gholston last summer, he was big, but still seemed to be growing into his body. Now at 6'6, 235-lbs, he just finished a year where he had nine sacks for Mumford and is now taking his talents to Southeastern.
|Austin White - RB - Livonia Stevenson
The youngest of the White brothers, Austin was arguably the most feared last season. A threat to score from anywhere on the field, he is already hearing from a number of Big Ten schools.
|Devin Gardner - QB - Inkster
An athletic, 6'5, 200-lb quarterback, Gardner has transferred to Inkster from U of D Jesuit. He has a strong arm to go along with escapability and playmaking skills and is already attracting schools from across the country.
|Nick Hill - RB - Chelsea
Hill may be the best pure football player in the class. He isn't the biggest or fastest, but he is a great running back with feet and vision to spare. He reminds us of Mike Hart, he turned out ok didn't he?
|Max Bullough - LB - Traverse City St. Francis
A product of a football family, Bullough already has an offer from Michigan State, where his dad played. A 6'3, 210-lb tackling machine, it would be surprising if the Spartan offer were his last.
|Tony Lippett - QB - Detroit Crockett
Taking the reigns as a sophomore last season, Lippett responded well as he threw 13 touchdowns and only five interceptions. Now with another summer of work, that ratio should get even better.
|Dior Mathis - CB/ATH - Detroit Cass Tech
Mathis is all potential right now. He has speed to burn (4.37) and is getting bigger (5'9, 170). With a host of players off to the college ranks, Mathis will be counted on to step up on both sides of the ball.
|Robert Bolden - QB - Orchard Lake St. Marys
With his size (6'3, 190) and speed (4.7), Bolden is primed to be a top recruit. He ran the offense well a year ago and the gloves will come off a bit this year as he will be counted on more as a playmaker.
