Detroit U-D Jesuit all-state hoopster, Ike Eke (F/C) committed to Marquette over the weekend during a visit to the school’s Milwaukee, Wisconsin campus. Long, lean, hungry and mean!!!….’Nuff Said!!! Nigerian Nightmare Pt. 1 off the market, switching all his focus to repeat state crown mode
Western Michigan’s football program dipped into town last week and snared a pair of ace linebacking studs for its Class of 2017 in Orchard Lake St. Mary’s Dwayne Chapman and Ann Arbor Pioneer’s Derrick Hubbard. Talk about doubling your pleasure and doubling your fun at the same time!!! These two are all wheels, instincts and wrangling ability sideline-to-sidelineevery single snap (aka endless motors).
Macomb Dakota junior cage prospect Thomas Kinthier impressed so much up at a camp in East Lansing at MSU over the weekend he earned a scholarship offer from Tom Izzo and the Spartans. This kid has a chance to be REALLY, REALLY special. Already probably the best post prospect Macomb County has seen since Mike Peplowski (Warren DLS-MSU) in the 80s
Detroit Cass Tech junior gridiron star Kalon Gervin (CB) saw scholarship offers from power-conference programs Arkansas andWest Virginia in the last few days. Can you say PrimeTime Talent? Ok, just wanted to make sure,
Recently-graduated North Farmington boys basketball standout Jacob Joubert (point guard) accepted a preferred walk-on slot at the University of Detroit-Mercy. Joubert was the ultimate pace-setter as a prepster, the all-time leader for the NF Raiders in games started and assists. His leadership was crucial in Team NOGO’s run into the Class A state finals back in March.
