STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: Michigan football recruiting notebook — OLSM’s Arnold To BC, EK’s Brown to BG, WL Northern’s Smith to WMU
Kam Arnold (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s 6-foot-0, 185 CB/WR) – Arnold will sign with Boston College next week. This 3-star prospect is the consummate playmaker on both sides of the pigskin. He will probably play in the defensive backfield in the ACC.
Gabriel Brown (East Kentwood 6-5, 290 OL) – Brown has decided to ink with Bowling Green on Signing Day. Phenomenal footwork and a fearless competitor at the point of attack.
Grant Smith (Walled Lake Northern 6-6, 295 OL) – Smith accepted a preferred walk-on spot at Western Michigan, where his teammate Kyle Arnoldi is heading on a scholarship. Blood-and-guts type in the trenches who is a very underrated pass protector.
Other recent commitments:
• Ethan Bunch, West Bloomfield ATH — Northwood
• Jack Fairman, Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood LB/RB — Penn
• Maxx Fisher, Midland PK/SS — Wayne State
• Blaze Lauer, Lake Orion QB — North Central College
• Kobe Manzo, Lake Orion RB — Northern Michigan
• Kolbe Trovinger, Muskegon Mona Shores LB — Davenport
Offers coming fast for secondary studs
West Bloomfield junior cornerback Maxwell (Greedy) Hairston might be the hottest prospect out of the defensive backfield in the Class of 2021. Maryland and West Virginia offered this week, as did Boston College.
Muskegon junior safety Tyreese Oaks is rising fast on the westside of the state, snaring offers from Central Michigan and Cincinnati in the past week.
Kalamazoo Central sophomore safety Cincear Lewis appears ready to blow up in his recruiting process: Indiana just offered.
Belleville sophomore safety and Michigan commit Myles Rowser will play his final two years of high school football at IMG Academy down in Florida. Rowser (6-0, 170) committed to Michigan earlier this month. He considered one of the top tenth-grade prospects in the nation out of the secondary.
