Five For Fighting — The Top 5 Most Underrated Defensive Backs In The MHSAA’s Class of 2022
1 Tyler Bivens (Ann Arbor Huron 6-foot-1.5, 170 CB) — The best value on the recruiting market at the cornerback position in his class right now, Mr. Super Glue is in the mix and for the taking.
2 Jason Hardy (Detroit Loyola 6-2, 180) — The quintessential big, long cover corner with primetime playmaker written all over him.
3 Jordon Clerkey (Holt 6-0, 175 CB) — This Okemos transfer is a lockdown corner with few, if any, equals in the Lansing area.
4 Jasper Beeler (North Farmington 6-0, 175 CB) — One of the most underappreciated primetime players out of the OAA, gets the job done on both sides of the ball.
5 Matthew Bennett (River Rouge 6-0, 180 S) — Big-play ball hawk who hits with ferocity and outthinks the competition in pass coverage.
Diamond in the ruff in the PSL:
Miles Gilmore (Detroit Cass Tech 5-7, 155) — Spunky competitor who plays with a chip on his shoulder and something to prove every snap.
Diamond in the ruff in Genesee County:
Christian Ellison (Flint Carman-Ainsworth 6-2, 185 S) — Raw potential, massive upside, tremendous length, range and athleticism.
