2 Brayden Evans (Mooresville S/WR) — Committed to Ball State, Evans is athletic, smart and versatile out of the secondary. He recorded 75 tackles and made three interceptions this past fall. As a big-play wide receiver, Evans snagged 50 catches for 850 yards and eight touchdowns.

6 Fortune Woods (Hammond Clark LB) — Committed to Bowling Green, Woods is a speed demon sideline to sideline and has great instincts off the snap going after the ball.
7 Austin Hill (Yorktown WR/S) — Committed to Ball State, Hill is the definition of a hidden gem in the recruiting game.
8 Griffin Little (Homestead TE) — Committed to Bowling Green, Little blocks like a maniac and stretches the field like Travis Kelce. He had six touchdowns grabs as a senior.
9 Mitch Collier (Columbus North TE/DE) — Committed to Central Michigan, Collier has upside written all over him.
10 Harrison Mevis (Warsaw K) — Committed to Missouri, Mevis has a golden leg and ice coursing through his veins in the clutch. He is ranked as the No. 2 placekicker in the nation.
