STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: Belleville’s Myles Rowser becomes Michigan Man, joining brother; Brighton’s Riddle, Newburg find college homes
Belleville sophomore safety Myles Rowser became a Michigan Man this week.
Arguably the state’s top sophomore prospect, Rowser (5-foot-11, 180) committed to the University of Michigan Monday. His older brother Andre Seldon, a speed-merchant of a cornerback, enrolled early at Michigan this month. The siblings teamed in the secondary to help power Belleville to the Division 1 semifinals back in November where the Tigers were knocked off by Brighton.
Rowser collected 65 tackles and five interceptions in 2019. He had offers from Florida, Florida State, Penn State, Tennessee, Nebraska and Minnesota, among others, and joins Essexville-Garber defensive lineman Alex VanSumeren in the Maize and Blue’s Class of 2022. Seldon was the first member of the Class of 2020 to jump on board the Harbaugh Express.
Bright futures for these Bulldogs
Fresh off their program’s first title-game appearance, Brighton senior linebacker Cole Riddle and senior quarterback Colby Newburg found places at the next level. Riddle, the heart and soul of the Bulldogs ‘D,’ the past two seasons, will play at Central Michigan next year and Newburg, a revelation under center in 2019, will suit up in the GLIAC for Saginaw Valley State.
Offers and visits
Detroit King junior safety Jaylen Reed just snagged an offer from Georgia. Reed is visiting Penn State this weekend for a basketball game.
West Bloomfield junior running back Donovan Edwards, the top skill-position athlete in the Class of 2021, picked up an Alabama offer. The blazing-fast and bulging-strong rusher has three dozen to choose from.
Ole Miss dipped into the Mitten last week and offered Edwards and Grosse Pointe South cornerback Will Johnson.
Detroit Cass Tech offensive lineman Raheem Anderson finally got a Michigan State offer. Michigan offered in the summer. Anderson is the No. 1 ranked center in his class.
