Top 10 Linebackers In The State For The 2016 Campaign
1 Josh Ross (OL St. Mary’s Sr.) – The best linebacker in the state a third year in a row, everything you want at the position …..…….committed to Michigan
2 Antjuan Simmons (AA Pioneer Sr.) – Speed and strength personified, brings the noise, brings the funk every snap sideline-to-sideline, high gridiron IQ…..…………committed to Ohio State
3 Ovie Oghoufo (FH Harrison Jr.) – Straight sickness at an outside linebacking spot, a genuine THER-A-FLU special  …………..committed to Notre Dame
4 Zach Morton (Detroit Cass Tech Sr.) – Versatile talent who can play rush end too, a pure ballhawk wherever he lines up ………..committed to Syracuse
5 Andrew Ward (Muskegon Sr.) – The No. 1 inside linebacker in the state, isn’t committed to a school at the next level, but should consider attending BALL SO HARD UNIVERSITY!!
6 Kolin Demens (Birmingham Detroit Country Day Jr.) – Reminds scouts of his big brother, NFL LB and DCD alum Kenny Demens (Michigan), endless motor, intelligence and instinct,
7 Steve Spenner (Berrien Springs Sr.) – Cash Money on the inside, like the Inside Man in the movie, best inside linebacker in the state behind only Andrew Ward ……….committed to Central Michigan
8 Lorenzo McCaskill (Southfield A&T Sr.) – Probably the most underrated prospect at the LB position in the state, physically imposing, fast, smart, a leader, X-Factor guy
9 Cepeda Phillips (Detroit King Sr.) – Major-league upside for this athletic specimen of an outside backer, just scratching the surface on his potential…………committed to Kent St.
10 (tie) Derrick Hubbard (AA Pioneer Sr.) – The best “No. 2” LB in the state    ………..committed to Western Michigan
10 (tie) Dwayne Chapman (OL St. Mary’s Sr.) – The best “No. 2” LB in the state Pt. 2 ………..committed to Western Michigan
10 (tie) George Douglas (Belleville Sr.) – “Sleeper Special” at outside backer, can really do damage to ball carriers, very disruptive presence snap-to-snap     ……….committed to Central Michigan
