Three of the best football recruits in the MHSAA’s Class of ’23 found their homes in college in recent days

Cole Cabana (Dexter 6-0, 185 RB) — Committed to Michigan, Cabana is one of the most versatile and dynamic offensive threats in the state. Most scouting experts peg him as the No. 1 tailback prospect in the Class of 2023. Last season, he rushed for 1,688 yards and 24 touchdowns, while catching 375 yards worth of balls and another four scores through the air. Besides UofM, Cabana held offers from Michigan State, Purdue, Pitt., Boston College, Cincinnati, Kansas, Louisville and Yale.

Khamari Anderson (Detroit Cass Tech 6-4 1/2, 220 TE) — Committed to Cincinnati, Anderson could have the biggest upside in the state’s junior class and might be another Antonio Gates in the making out of the PSL. He visited the Cincinnati campus last weekend. Michigan, USC, Pitt. and Indiana were all in hot pursuit for Anderson’s talents as well. Anderson hauled in 8 touchdowns last fall.

Drew Viotto (Walled Lake Western 6-4, 215 QB) — Committed to Eastern Michigan, Viotto is a fabulous field general prospect with all the tools for greatness at the next level. In his first year starting in 2021, he threw for 2,126 yards and 22 touchdowns, completing nearly 70 percent of his passes. Viotto is the consummate competitor and a signal caller’s signal caller. The Canadian Cannon is about to take Ypsilanti by storm.
