Using the list Scott M. Burnstein put together in the preseason, here are where the seniors from the State Champs! top 50 players wound up heading to college to play football. Of the original top 50, only a couple — Muskegon Mona Shores’ Jacob Wahlberg, Madison Heights Madison’s Austin Brown and Belleville’s Tyrece Woods — were still unsigned heading into the February signing period. Woods signed with Buffalo on Wednesday.

 

Here are where the remaining of the preseason 50 chose to sign, along with a dozen and a half more seniors, to replace the underclassmen on the original list:
