By: Scott Burnstein, February 5, 2018, 7:00 am
With Signing Day on the horizon this week, here’s a six-pack of GLIAC football recruiting grabs that represent outstanding value at the DII level:
Davison RB Tariq Reid (Grand Valley State) – Has the chance to be a SUPERSTAR rushing the rock in Allendale, don’t let his lack of sprinter speed fool you, tremendous instinct, loves contact, fierce competitor going between the tackles, never stops moving his feet  
Southfield A&T WR Matt Gilbert (Grand Valley State) – The best pass catcher you don’t know about but should……and WILL at GVSU. Just filthy under-the-radar good
Walled Lake Western WR Justin Thomas (Wayne State) – The state’s receiving touchdown leader as a senior (15) is the definition of durable and reliable….MAD SWAG, TOO!!!
Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook OL Tim Hauxwell (Michigan Tech) – SUPERSONIC SLEEPER SPECIAL in the trenches, this 6-foot-8 road grader will challenge for early playing time in the Great White North 
Detroit Catholic Central LB Isaac Darkangelo (Northern Michigan) – Ready to SHAKE & BAKE sideline to sideline like a crazed animal up in Marquette, tireless motor, loads of intelligence and leadership ability 
West Bloomfield TE-FB James Faulkner (Saginaw Valley State) – Sure handed, strong and steady as a rock whether stretching the field at TE, catching hitch routes out of the backfield or clearing the way for a tailback by blocking his butt off
