Grand Valley State grabbed three recruits spanning the Mitten in the days before the 2021 MHSAA football season kicked off, one from Metro Detroit, one from the Flint area and one from “Up North” in Traverse City.

Breaking down the newest GVSU Lakers gridiron commitments:

Cross Dobbs (Grand Blanc 6-foot-3, 210-pound LB) — Freakish athlete sideline-to-sideline, just scratching the surface on what he can be as a playmaker at the OLB spot.

Cooper Phillips (Macomb Dakota 6-5, 290 OL) — The definition of a terror in the trenches, fierce competitor, fundamentally-sound and flawless footwork.

Brett Weaver (Traverse City Central 6-6, 230 TE/DE/OL) — Massive upside, think JJ Watt meets Rob Gronkowski.
