STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: Burney’s 10-pack of intriguing junior gridiron recruits around Michigan
Burney breaks down a 10-pack of intriguing junior football recruits around the state:
Carson Briggs (Traverse City Central OL) — Plays bully ball up front, blood-sweat-&-tears type in the trenches.
Kyle Fugedi (Livonia Franklin OL) — Held Indiana and Kentucky offers, but committed to Miami (Ohio) last Thursday.
Rishad Hence (Detroit King CB) — A true sleeper out of the PSL defensive back crop, could be the city’s best cover corner.
David Holloman (Auburn Hills Avondale RB) — One word: SPEED!!!
Quillen Howze (Chippewa Valley ATH)— Game-changer in every way, mobile, agile, versatile.
Blake Kosin (Clarkston TE) — Committed to Northern Illinois, don’t be shocked if this soft-handed prospect ends up with a Power-5 school by the time Signing Day comes around.
Chris Parker (Saginaw Heritage WR) — Quietly making a name for himself stretching the field in the SAGNASTY. Passes the eye test with flying colors.
Austin Roon (Byron Center LB) — The No. 1 defensive player in the state you don’t know about but should. Big, fast and rugged. He can play on the outside or in the middle of a linebacker unit.
Armorion Smith (River Rouge S) — All the tools, physical and mental, to quarterback a secondary.
Jacob Taylor (Detroit Cass Tech CB-SB-KR) — Burney is predicting a breakout season is on the horizon for this PSL playmaker — great wheels, great instincts, cash-money moves.
