STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: The Five & Dime >> Ready for some roofing action on the line
THE FIVE & DIME — Five linemen in the MHSAA ready to raise the roof on their recruiting:
Jalen Johnson (River Rouge 6-3, 295 Sr. OL) — A true sleeper in the trenches for coach Parker’s Panthers Pain Train. Committed to Ball State back in April.
Xavier Reed (Muskegon 6-2, 305 Jr. OL) — The next prospect on the line to rocket launch his recruiting on the west side of the state.
Elijah Reilly (Detroit King 6-2, 295 Sr. OL) — Phenomenal value at the position out of the PSL — a road grader who plays with a chip on his shoulder.
Myles Page (Oak Park 6-5, 300 Sr. DL) — The definition of a rugged run-plugger, very agile for his size; will be a steal at the next level.
Ben Simmons (Birmingham Groves 6-6, 270 Sr. OL) — Heart-and-soul type than can anchor the line and read defensive packages, mega smart football player, leader with a mega motor.
