Football Recruiting December Radar Rundown – The Best Left On The Board In The MHSAA’s Class of ‘21

1 Donovan Edwards (West Bloomfield 5-foot-11, 190 pounds RB) — One word: Generational.

2 Ru’Quan Buckley (Wyoming Godwin Heights 6-7, 280 DE) — Mega motor, flawless technique, fearless competitor.

3 Ramier Lewis (Belleville 6-7, 360 OL) — NFL upside, late-blooming “Pancake Prince” in the making.

4 Charlie Sims Jr. (Detroit Cass Tech 6-5, 330 OL) — The most underrated line prospect in the PSL regardless of grade. Great agility and footwork for his size.

5 Blake Nelson (Walled Lake Central 6-4, 235 TE) — If he played at WL Western, West Bloomfield or OL St. Mary’s, this kid would have his pick of Power 5 schools. That’s how talented this kid is. Epitome of the term hidden gem.

6 Colin Weber (Hopkins 6-4, 240 TE) — Think Travis Kelce. Hands, wheels, heart.

7 Tyreese Oaks (Muskegon 6-0, 175 S) — Swift-footed, instinctive free safety with a flair for making big plays at big moments.

8 Jalin Pitchford (Wyandotte Roosevelt 6-1, 200 QB) — The potential to be a star at the next level, smooth delivery, dandy of an arm, can create rolling out of the pocket.

9 Abdul (A.J.) Jabbar (Southfield A&T 6-2, 280 DL) — Former Akron commit who is back on the market and viewed as a true sleeper special in recruiting circles. Phenomenal work ethic, quick mind for anticipating plays, fast off the snap.

10 (tie) Christian Dhue-Reid (Belleville 5-10, 215 QB) — Gunslinger’s mentality, one of the best to ever play the position in state history

10 (tie) Jacob Taylor (Detroit Cass Tech 6-0 180 CB) — Low-key game changer in pass coverage
