STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: The Young Gun Gridiron Report — Baby baller alert in Belleville

By: SCOTT M. BURNSTEIN, May 8, 2021, 11:08 am

The “diaper dandy” crop is vast in the Blue-Chip factory Belleville football program these days. Droves of fresh new ballers are chomping at the bit and waiting for their time to shine, ready to make a name for themselves for Team Crowell in the next few months.

Let’s breakdown a group of future big-time B-Town playmakers you need to know heading into the summer recruiting season and the upcoming 2021 campaign:

Bryce Underwood (QB Class of ‘25) — The next big thing under center in the MHSAA. Trending towards the stratosphere, so watch out. Think CDR with high-major size.

Kevin Simes (WR Class of ‘24) — The best slot receiver in the state’s freshman class.

James Robinson (WR Class of ‘24) — Piping-hot pass catching prospect with all the right moves.

Nathaniel Johnson (OL Class of ‘24) — Trench warfare in Belleville will continue to be elite now that Nasty Nate is about to take over for the ‘Bama bound Damon Payne as resident Blue Chipper at the point of attack for the Tigers. 

Mathias Davis & Andrew Hessler (DE Class of ‘24) — Two Hustle-&-Flow Specials rushing the quarterback in perfect synchronization.

Jeremiah Beasley (LB Class of ‘24) — Strong, fast, smart, can play MIKE and IKE backer spots, hits like a ton of bricks.

Kris Easley (LB Class of ‘24) — Menace in the making sideline to sideline.

Renzo Jennings (CB Class of ‘24) — Lockdown cover corner prospect with a sick upside and Blue-Chip recruit written all over him.
