By: SCOTT M. BURNSTEIN, February 26, 2021, 10:51 am



Class of ‘23 Watch List

(alphabetical order)

Jack Bakus (Midland Dow 6-foot-5, 215 pounds) — Severely underrated dual-threat signal-caller with ice in his veins.

Jake DeHaan (Grand Rapids South Christian 6-2, 185) — Cannon of an arm, cool, calm and collected in the clutch.

Brady Drogosh (Warren De La Salle 6-4, 185) — Just scratching the surface on what he can do in the pocket.

Jeff Heaslip (Marine City 6-1, 180) — Plays pit-bull tough, displays great field vision and has a competitive streak that makes him a true winner. 

Cane Mack (Portage Northern 6-4, 210) — The next big thing under center on the westside, wait for the explosion.


Class of ’22 Watch List

(alphabetical order)

Zak Ahern (Rockford 6-2, 190) — Zeroed in on greatness, please make a note.

Brady Berezowsky (Fraser 6-2, 175) — Will be the MIP in the MAC in the fall.

Ashton Mohlman (Woodhaven 6-4, 210) — The epitome of a Downriver Dandy, straight nastiness and priceless precision personified out of the pocket.

Zac Olesuk (Livonia Franklin 6-2, 180) — Lightning in a bottle type, 24K magic with his arm and his feet.

Ryan Schuster (Chippewa Valley 6-2, 195) — Maybe the best value in terms of a college recruit at the field general position in his class.


Bonus Bytes:

Freshman to know: Ryan Shelby (North Farmington) — Looking razor sharp on the camp circuit, could be the next QB gem to emerge from the Herrington-Herstein regime.

Small school pocket prince to know: Carson Roose (Grosse Pointe Woods University Liggett, 2022, 6-5, 210) — Best small-school college prospect in the state.
