FIVE FOR FIGHTING — The Top 5 Fastest-Rising Pass-Catching Prospects In Oakland County

1 Semaj Morgan (West Bloomfield 5-11, 175 Jr. WR) — Slick, speedy and ready to make WB WR U once again. The ultimate game changer for the L-Boyz passing attack. Michigan and Missouri both offered recently, along with West Virginia, Memphis and Tennessee State.

2 Aidan Vaughan (Walled Lake Western 6-4, 220 Sr. WR/TE) — Maybe the best value right now at his position in the Class of ’22 for Metro Detroit, buy stock now on this game-changer of an athlete. Bowling Green, Toledo and Western Michigan all offered recently.

3 DC Temple (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s 6-7, 220 Sr. TE) — Has next-level talent written all over him, think Antonio Gates meets Dion Sims. Expect a huge senior campaign in the red zone.

4 Xavier Bowman (Birmingham Brother Rice 6-1, 185 Soph. WR) — Smart, strong and quick, can go across the middle or burn defenders on the deep route, has a heavy-duty motor and work ethic.

5 Darius Whiteside (Troy 6-2, 195 Jr. WR) — A real thoroughbred who will enter 2021 as the most underrated home run threat in the OAA.
