Football Recruiting Notebook — CT’s Bishop, Dakota’s Whitaker Choose WMU In Late-Season Pick-Ups
The WMU Broncos broke into Metro Detroit and boosted a pair of low-key gridiron studs.
In recent weeks, Western Michigan dipped into the D and snagged a couple sleepers for its Class of 2024 by earning the commitments of Noah Bishop (Detroit Cass Tech 6-5, 225 DE) and Jalen Whitaker (Macomb Dakota 6-0, 180 CB).
Bishop is oozing with upside off the edge. He’s one of the PSL’s true diamond in the ruff ride-or-die prospects. Whitaker has the potential to be a lockdown cover corner at the college level and should have received more love on the recruiting trail.
GLIAC glow up
Kevin Simes (Belleville 5-9, 170 WR) — Committing to Ferris State, Simes is as slick and reliable as they come out of the slot and has been doing damage since he was a fab frosh.
Ryan Ross (Warren De La Salle 6-3, 300 OL) –– Committing to Ferris State, Ross is an equally rugged, quick on his feet and lethally crafty presence at the point of attack and the definition of a leader and all-around baller
Josh Williams (Dearborn Fordson 6-3, 275 DL) — Committing to Grand Valley State, Williams is a workhorse in the trenches and tough as nails.
