Leeshaun Mumpfield

Detroit Cass Tech | Position: QB

Class: 2023 | Height: 5-foot-8 | Weight: 174 pounds

Commitment: Uncommitted

The then-sophomore southpaw may have come out of nowhere to lead the Technicians to a 9-1 season a year ago, but nobody should be surprised he’s successful in Year 2 as a starter, especially not with an offseason entrenched as CT’s QB1. It’s just the level of success through two weeks that’s been astounding, as the junior signal-caller has thrown touchdowns to five different receivers in each of the first two, registering more TD passes (12) than incompletions (5), leading CT to a 2-0 record. STATS AFTER WEEK 3: Completed 45 of 59 passes for 650 yards and 14 TDs, 2 INTs.

On the season, he completed 115 of 194 passes for 2,064 yards and 35 touchdowns, against just four interceptions, and rushed for 717 yards (113 carries) and nine scores, earning first-team all-state honors in Division 5 from the MHSFCA, and second-team honors from the Associated Press. STATS AFTER WEEK 3: Has thrown for 804 yards and 13 TDs on 54 for 73 passing, including seven touchdown passes in Week 3, one week after breaking the school record for TD passes.

West Bloomfield | Position: RB/DB

Class: 2022 | Height: 5-foot-11 | Weight: 190 pounds

Commitment: Undecided

Even with last year’s Mr. Football, Donovan Edwards, on the field for the Lakers, Tatum was still a big-play threat, racking up more than 650 yards from scrimmage (500-plus rushing, 150 receiving) and four scores, earning second-team all-state honors in Division 1-2 from the Associated Press. While he’ll get a more expanded role as an offensive weapon as a senior, Tatum will likely play defensive back in college. STATS AFTER WEEK 3: Has 31 carries for 279 yards and five touchdowns, with 148 more all-purpose yards on returns and catches in a 2-1 start for the Lakers.
