Eight quarterbacks to watch for on Michigan’s WEST SIDE In ‘21

(listed in alphabetical order)

Jeremiah Drake (Wyoming Godwin Heights 6-5, 215 Sr.) — Dripping with finesse in the pocket, immense upside as a college prospect.

Casey Joppie (East Kentwood 6-0, 180 Soph.) — Trending towards stardom, showing flashes of greatness.

Mark Konecny (Mona Shores 6-0, 200 Sr.) — Will have one of the best senior campaigns in the state.

Jaeden Meeks (Benton Harbor 6-1, 180 Soph.) — Massive potential, naturally-gifted athlete with a thinking-man’s approach to the game.

DeVoine Newton (Battle Creek Central 6-0, 190 Soph.) — All the makings of a lethal weapon.

Caleb Schnell (Portage Central 6-1, 180 Sr.) — One of the more underrated signal callers in the area, efficient and smart.

Nate Tucker (Marshall 6-5, 195 Sr.) — An absolute stud of a dime dropper and the definition of a diamond in the ruff as a recruit.

Myles Walton (Muskegon 5-10, 170 Sr.) — Division I recruit in the secondary who has a very good chance of getting into the Mr. Football mix as a field general this fall.
