Zach Trainor

Walled Lake Western | Jr., QB - 6'2", 205 pounds

Trainor started as a freshman for Hartland before transferring to Western, then backing up Boston College-bound Sam Johnson III last fall. This year, he’s come into his own as the starter, throwing for 750 yards and eight touchdowns, and running for another score through two weeks of action. A pro-style quarterback in a state without great recruiting depth at the position, Trainor already has a pair of Division I offers.

Anthony Romphf

Southfield A&T | Sr., QB - 6'1", 180 pounds. Commitment: Florida Atlantic

A dual-threat quarterback who can make plays with his feet as much as his arm, Romphf has plenty of options — Christian Fitzpatrick, Robert Army Jr., Arron Foulkes, Jeff Bowens — to throw to at wideout, and could be poised for a huge season. Is as accurate throwing on the run as he is from the pocket.

Abdur-Rahmaan Yaseen

Walled Lake Western | Sr., WR/DB - 6'1", 180 pounds. Commitment: Northwestern

One of the best skill position players in the state, Yaseen is happy just to be on this list, happy to have a senior season to predict big things about. This summer, he was initially declared ineligible to play by the MHSAA, but further investigation into his academic records led to a reversal of that decision last week. As a junior, Yaseen had 53 catches for 964 yards and seven touchdowns, and intercepted three passes. Quarterback Sam Johnson III (Boston College) is gone, but new quarterback Zach Trainor should be able to keep Yaseen supplied with targets.

Rashawn Williams

Detroit ML King | Sr., WR - 6'1", 185 pounds. Commitment: Indiana

In 2018, the King receiving corps had a wealth of options, with three different receivers racking up more than 300 yards in receptions through the regional round of the playoffs, and the STATE CHAMPS! Mr. Football winner, Dequan Finn, spreading the wealth around to all of them. Through graduation and transfer, the 2019 edition of the King wideout corps is a much slimmed down version, leaving Rashawn Williams as the likely beneficiary of increased targeting, as the main outlet for the passes of first-year quarterback starter Dante Moore. Williams could be poised for a monster senior season, before heading off to Indiana, a landing spot he chose among his 32 offers.

Ian Stewart

Gibraltar Carlson | Sr., WR/S/ATH - 6'3", 200 pounds. Commitment: Michigan State

The Michigan State Spartans have had good luck recruiting do-everything players (think: 2016 Mr. Football winner Cody White), so Stewart — who has played all over for Carlson, lining up at quarterback, running back, wide receiver, linebacker and safety — will fit right in. As a junior, Stewart played primarily quarterback in Carlson’s Wing-T offense, leading the Marauders to back-to-back playoff berths after a seven-year absence, and a share of the Downriver League title.

Cam Martinez

Muskegon | Sr., QB/DB/ATH - 5'11", 183 pounds. Commitment: Ohio State

After transferring over from Muskegon Catholic Central, where he led the Crusaders to an unbeaten season and a Division 8 state title as a freshman, Martinez continued to tear up the record books with the Big Reds. He broke the school rushing records for yards (2,526) and touchdowns (38) as a junior, leading Muskegon to the Division 3 title game, primarily with his legs. He probably won’t play quarterback at the next level, at Ohio State, but his versatility will be on display this season, when he’ll play a multitude of positions on offense, as well as defensive back for Muskegon.

Donovan Edwards

West Bloomfield | Jr., RB - 5'11", 190 pounds

One of the top running backs in the nation in the 2021 class, Edwards had just begun to earn state-wide notoriety when a leg injury cut short his sophomore season after just seven games. Healthy again, he’s one of the big reasons the Lakers — who lost in the D1 title game Edwards’ freshman season, and in the regional finals last year — are one of the preseason favorites to win a state title. At 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, Edwards is a complete back who can rack up yardage between the tackles, or burst to the outside, and can catch the ball out of the backfield.

Christian Dhue-Reid

Belleville | Jr., QB - 5'11", 200 pounds

A pro-style quarterback with a big arm, Dhue-Reid threw for 2,759 yards and 39 touchdowns as a sophomore, and — despite losses to graduation — still has a deep and talented wideout corps to throw to. Since taking over under center for the Tigers as a freshman, he’s 22-2 as a starter, leading Belleville to its first-ever semifinal appearance last fall.

Maliq Carr

Oak Park | Sr., WR/TE - 6'5", 230 pounds

With the speed of a wideout and the frame of a tight end, Carr is a physical mismatch with most defenders, as evidenced by his ridiculous after of 38 yards per catch as a junior. The two-sport star — who could play college basketball, as well — can out-jump and out-muscle almost everyone he faces. While he won’t have the departed Dwan Maths (Georgia) throwing to him this fall, that didn’t seem to matter in this summer’s 7-on-7 circuit, where Carr put on a show, catching passes from new QB Frank Black.

Andrel Anthony

East Lansing | Jr., WR - 6'2", 165 pounds

A taller receiver, Anthony certainly has the length and catch radius to out-jump smaller defensive backs, but he’s not just a red zone target. He’s got great speed for his size, and uses it to his advantage, blowing past coverage, and running after the catch. His recruitment picked up quickly in the offseason, with Michigan hoping to pry him out of the shadows of MSU’s Spartan Stadium.
