High Expectations Entering Summer: Metro Detroit LBs To Expect Big Offseasons

By: Scott Burnstein, May 25, 2023, 2:21 pm

Some sideline-to-sideline sensations about to blow up on the recruiting scene in the D

Antonio Tate (Detroit Cass Tech 6-2, 210 Jr.) — The next great PSL linebacker prospect, showing flashes of straight fire that seem to be kindling to 5-alarm recruit status soon

Nick Waszczenko (Clarkston 6-1, 215 Sr.) — A total workhorse every snap, technically sound and a terror in pass coverage

Isaiah Veatch (Waterford Mott 6-1, 220 Sr.) — Thunderous tackler, the definition of a grind-to-shine guy

Mikey Bolan (Waterford Mott 6-2, 210 Sr.) — Freakish skill set, wheels, wits and wrecking ball ferocity going after the ball

Alex Birach (Birmingham Brother Rice 6-1, 205 Sr.)— Hard-nosed, high-motor and intelligent, the perfect package for an Ivy League program

Connor Bercume (Detroit Catholic Central 6-0, 220 Jr.) — His grip-it-&-rip-it mentality aniinatural athletic ability cut like a knife on the gridiron and the wrestling mat

Aidan Bergin (Birmingham Detroit Country Day 6-2, 220 Jr.)— The last name says it all, size, speed, instinct, closing power

Skylar Bonner (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s 6-0, 200 Sr.) — Maybe the most underrated playmaker on defense in the Catholic League
