Top Michigan HS Boys Soccer players to watch for the 2018 season: Visser and Nicholsen lead the returning pack
In a rarity, no member of the 2017 Michigan High School Soccer Coaches Association All-State Dream Team returned this season. All 11 members of that squad graduated in June.
Furthermore, no members of the Division 1 All-State First Team and just three members of the Division 2 First Team, three players on the Division 3 First Team and six members of the Division 4 First Team returned to the pitch this fall.
While there are ample openings on the All-State teams come November, that does not mean there is a shortage of talent on the Michigan high school circuit this season. And even with many star players suiting up for Developmental Academy programs, there is still an abundance of Division I, Division II, Division III and NAIA college recruits sprinkled all over the state.
More than 250 coaches from around the mitten submitted names of players to watch this autumn.
Here’s a look at the fifth annual State Champs Network’s Top Boys Soccer Players to watch list.
1. TOMMY VISSER, Grand Rapids Christian, Sr. F/M: The highest returning player from the Division 2 All-State First Team, Visser is a fine all-around player. The fourth-year veteran has already committed to Division I Butler University of the Big East Conference. Last season he notched 15 goals and 12 assists for a regional finalist team and is racking up numbers in bunches this season.
2. DYLAN SING, Stevensville-Lakeshore, Sr. F/M: Named to the Division 2 All-State First Team last season, the 6-foot-3 Sing can really play a tune near the net. Last season he notched 21 goals as a sniper and 24 assists as a set-up man and should pass both of those numbers this season. Sing recently committed to Western Michigan. Also carries a 3.85 GPA.
3. MICHAEL KETTEMAN, Portage Central, Sr. M/F: Another talented sniper and playmaker, Ketteman has drawn plenty of Division I and D-II college interest and has also drawn attention from each opposing team’s top marking back. Ketteman is simply dangerous around the goal, earning D-1 All-State Second Team status last season. He notched 17 goals and seven assists and will eclipse those totals later this season for one of the state’s top teams.
4. MAX KEENAN, Kalamazoo Hackett Catholic, Sr. M/F: Already committed to Western Michigan, Keenan suffered a torn ACL last winter and isn’t expected back until late this season. The gifted playmaker and finisher has played in two state title games and three state semifinals in Division 4, where he was All-State First Team last year. He notched 41 goals and 14 assists and his return will be crucial in the Irish making another run towards an elusive state title.
5. BRENNAN CREEK, Kalamazoo Hackett Catholic, Sr. M/F: The other half of Hackett’s dynamite duo, Creek has also garnered plenty of college interest from D-I, D-II, D-III and NAIA schools due to his explosiveness on the attack, committing to Western Michigan in March. Last season he generated 40 goals and 37 assists as one of Michigan’s most deadly offensive threats. He is a three-time All-State performer in D-4, including All-State First Team last year.
6. BEN DYKSTRA, Hudsonville, Sr. M: As one opposing coach put it, Dykstra “is a man amongst boys.” The center midfielder was All-State Third Team in Division 1 last season and is hoping to guide Hudsonville to its best season to date. He is another D-I recruit on this list who will find a slot on a college roster in the near future. Dykstra is a gifted playmaker and ball-winner.
7. CLARK DOMAN, Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook-Kingswood, Sr. M/F: One of the top player in Division 2 last season, where he notched All-State First Team status, the lightning-quick Doman is a pest in all opposing defenses sides. Like many of the other top candidates on this list, Doman is being courted by colleges of different levels. On the field, he hopes to guide the Cranes a coveted state title.
8. CHARLIE SHARP, Brighton, Sr. M/F: Either as an attacking midfielder or sniper up top, Sharp is a dangerous player for a team that doesn’t play a bunch of cupcakes. He has opted not to play in the Developmental Academy system and torture high school opponents instead. Playing with relentless pace, Sharp slipped through defenses for 12 goals and 11 assists last year and is well on his way to eclipsing those totals this year. Named D-1 All-State Honorable Mention last season, Sharp has plenty of D-I college offers, including Western Michigan and several others around the Midwest.
9. MUAZ ASPERGER, Grand Blanc, Sr. F: Back-to-back trips to the Division 1 regional finals couldn’t have been accomplished by Grand Blanc without the services to the talented Asperger. He was named All-State Third Team last season and always walks onto the field as a heavily-marked man with his mixture of speed and finishing capabilities.
10. DRAKE MIDGELY, Novi Detroit Catholic Central Sr. M: The engine that makes the Shamrocks go, Midgely was a key cog in CC reaching the state semifinals in 2016 and capturing their first D-1 state title in 2017. The D-I and D-II college recruit was All-State Honorable Mention last season after scoring 11 goals with 10 assists. Expect bigger things from this stellar playmaker this season.
11. ANDREY HOFIUS, Midland Dow, Sr. M/F: With the Chargers returning most of their team, which is off to an undefeated start, Hofius has stepped into the limelight as his team’s spark plug. He is a ODP Region II standout who has offers from D-I, D-II and D-III programs. The high-energy and versatile Hofius was D-1 All-State Honorable Mention last season after providing 14 goals and 18 assists and is quickly garnering the reputation as one of the state’s best.
12. MAX REBORI, Berkley, Sr. M/F: Berkley’s sergeancy in recent years has to to with a n influx of talented players and Rebori’s talents have not gone unnoticed. The Vardar club product is an imposing 6-2 threat in the middle of the field and has also gained plenty of college interest. He had nine goals and eight assists last season, earning D-1 All-State Third Team accolades. Rebori is great in the air, on counterattacks and can both a set-up man or finisher.
13. LUKE GAUTHIER, Caledonia, Sr. M: Coming behind two older brothers that starred at Caledonia, Gauthier may be the best of the bunch. The fourth-year starter has drawn plenty of attention from college coaches and hopes to lead Caledonia to its best season to date. He was D-1 All-State Honorable Mention last season.
14. ZACHARY CEPO, Monroe St. Mary Catholic Central, Jr. M/F: After two seasons, Cepo has not only helped put his school on the soccer map, but has built quite a resume. He notched 48 assists in both his freshmen and sophomore years, which are MHSAA single-season records. He owns 33 goals and 96 assists and was named D-4 All-State First Team as a sophomore as well as the two-time Monroe Evening News Player of the Year. Living near the Ohio border, Cepo plays in the Ohio ODP system and club ball with the Toledo Celtic, where he led his team to the Ohio State Cup. College interest from around the Midwest has already landed Cepo on the prospects map.
15. KADIN SHABEN, Hudsonville Unity Christian, Jr. F: As a sophomore, Shaben earned Division 3 All-State First Team honors for good reason. He has scored more than 20 goals in both of his first two years of prep soccer. Already on the college soccer radar, Shaben will be on the Mr. Soccer watch list in 2019 and a key cog in Unity’s quest for a state title this year.
16. CALEB SEXTON, Jackson, Sr. M/F: Big, fast and physical, Sexton rang the bell 30 times last season to break a 28-year-old school scoring record for the Vikings, who cracked the D-1 Top 20 for the first time last season. Named All-State Honorable Mention and Jackson Citizen Patriot Player of the Year last season, the Michigan Wolves club project has played on two State Cup club teams and has gained plenty of college interest. He recently committed to D-II Huntington University.
17. ELLIOT GREATHOUSE, Portage Central, Sr. M: The engine of the Mustangs’ top 10 convertible, Greathouse hopes to aid his team’s ride to a state title run. Another D-I or D-II recruit, he collected 10 goals and 10 assists last season en route to All-State Honorable Mention accolades. He is the type of player that when he touches the ball, good things usually happen.
18. ZEKE GRAY, Saline Jr. M: After spending his freshman year in the Michigan Wolves Developmental Academy, Gray joined the high school ranks as a sophomore and the gifted playmaker responded with 14 goals and 11 assists and D-1 All-State Honorable Mention honors. Using great field vision and distribution skills, Gray should be on the list of Mr. Soccer candidates next season as a senior. Right now, he is capable of leading the Hornets to a deep postseason run.
19. TADEUSZ GABRYEL, Warren DeLaSalle, Sr. D/F: Expectations at DeLaSalle are higher than they have been for a few years and the talented Gabryel is one of the reasons why. The D-I college prospect, who is being courted by the likes of Oakland, can play anywhere on the field and earned Division 1 All-State Honorable Mention honors last season.
20. JEREMY LUCIANI, Marshall, Sr. M/F: At a towering 6-8 on the soccer pitch, Luciani is dominant in the air as well as a great distributer and finisher. Highly athletic, Luciani is being courted by D-I, D-II and D-III schools for both soccer and basketball. He was named to the D-2 All-State Second Team after scoring 24 times with eight assists last season. He is the type of versatile player who can lead Marshall to championships this season.
21. MICAH SONNENBERG, Brooklyn Columbia Central, Sr. M/F: Not coming from a traditional powerhouse, there are reasons the Michigan Jaguars club product has garnered offers from the likes of D-I Western Michigan and D-II Saginaw Valley State among others. Sonnenberg is on pace to be a top 10 goal scorer in MHSAA history. Through eight games this season, Sonnenberg has recorded 119 career goals, 47 assists and 19 hat tricks and led his team to only its second D-3 district title last season.
22. MATTHEW PLAEHN, Lansing Catholic, Sr. M: All-State all three years. Plaehn is not only one of the top players from Division 3 and Lansing area overall, but in the state as well. Plaehn was named All-State First Team as a junior and is entertaining various college offers. He is a three-time All-State selection.
23. RYAN SVORINIC, Freeland, Sr. F: The latest of the Svorinic brothers, this fourth-year veteran has garnered plenty of respect of being the most dangerous player in the Saginaw-Bay City area. Named D-3 All-State Second Team last year, Svorinic is known for clutch goals in big games throughout his career and hopes to lead the Falcons to a deep postseason run this autumn.
24. JACOB SAWICKI, Grosse Ile, Sr. M: For an impressive program that won the Huron League and reached the Division 3 regional finals last season, few players put up numbers quite like this future college player did last season. He rang up 42 goals and 23 assists to earned All-State Second Team accolades.
25. JORDAN OKITO, Grand Rapids Forest Hills Northern, Sr. F: A former African refugee, in rare fashion the MHSAA cleared Okito to play another season based on his unusual circumstances. As a junior, Okito was his team’s leading scorer with 25 goals and 10 assists and earned Division 2 All-State Second Team honors. Playing with extreme speed and finishing capabilities, Okito has raised the eyebrows of plenty of college coaches.
26. ZACHARY ZIMMERMAN, Ann Arbor Greenhills, Sr. D/M: One of the top players in Division 4 last season, Zimmerman was a catalyst behind the Gryphons’ run to the state championship in 2017. The center midfielder earned All-State First Team honors after scoring 31 goals with 24 assists.
27. CHRISTOPHER SCHLAU, Grand Rapids Christian, Sr. M: Another Division I recruit in the Sailors’ deep roster, Schlau is an ODP Region II player and workhorse in the midfield for a team that will challenge for the D-2 state crown this year. Deploying excellent speed, Schlau has great field vision and is at his best setting up others from his outside midfield position.
28. MOHAMED BOBALE, East Lansing, Jr. F: The latest in line of many great players to don the East Lansing uniform, Bobale earned Division 2 All-State Third Team status last season after helping the Trojans to the state runner-up trophy. He will be a marked player this season after playing his best soccer down the stretch last season.
29. AIDAN O’CONNOR, Grand Rapids Forest Hills Northern, Jr. D: Already being courted by Division I college programs, O’Connor is a third-year starter in the back for one of the state’s top Division 2 programs. Playing club for Midwest United MRL-level team, O’Connor also turned some heads over the summer at North Carolina’s ID Camp. He was All-State Third Team as a sophomore.
30. URIEL GARCIA, East Kentwood, Sr. M: The Falcons are a pipeline of talent and Garcia is the latest to take over the reigns. The attacking midfielder can take over a game with his play-making abilities. Last season he played behind a deep group of seniors in the Grand Rapids area but is set to make a name for himself on the pitch this season.
31. AIDAN FAWCETT, Troy Athens, Sr. D: The defensive-minded Red Hawks opened the season 8-0-0 by allowing just two goals and this third-year starter in the backfield is the glue to Athens success. Expect high accolades and college offers after this campaign for Fawcett, the leader for this team seeking its first state title in 1997.
32. JOSH VARNEY, Woodhaven, Sr. F/M: The top player to come through his school in years, the Michigan Jaguars club product process as both a set-up player and goal scorer. Versatile to play all over the pitch, Varney has a high soccer IQ and field vision and has attracted offers from numerous college coaches.
33. JOSH STEVENS, Salem, Sr. M: With 15 seniors, expectations are high at Salem, where Stevens is ranked as his team’s best player. An All-KLAA First Team and All-State Honorable Mention choice in D-1 last season, Stevens is his team’s energizer bunny and the fuel to the fire in a quest for the Rocks’ first state title run.
34. LUIS KOLECI, Utica Eisenhower, Sr. F: Named Division 1 All-State Honorable Mention last season, Koleci scored 20 goals last season and is considered one of the most dangerous is players in all of Macomb County. Playing with extreme pace and can strike on command, Koleci is uncommitted for college but will be quite a steal at the next level as a proven goal scorer.
35. AIDAN DAY, Alpena, Sr. F: Already tabbed as one of the best players to come trough Alpena’s program, Day plays club ball for Vardar-North. On the high school circuit, he was the leading goal scorer in the Big North Conference as a junior. Through eight games this season, he has notched 45 goals, 30 assists and 75 points in his career and ranks high on his school’s career lists in numerous categories. Scoring 13 times in first eight games this season, Day has garnered attention from D-I and D-II schools.
36. ROCCO GALATI, Warren DeLaSalle, Sr. F: After spending the past two years with the Vardar Academy, Galati gained his release to compete for DeLaSalle as a senior. The goal-scoring threat should help the Pilots rejoin the top tier of teams in Division 1.
37. TY USIAK, Okemos, Jr. F: As Okemos fields one of its better teams in several years, Usiak is the player gaining the most attention by opposing defenses. He was only named All-CAAC Blue Division and all-district last season, but has been on an offensive tear this year as one of the most feared players in the Lansing area.
38. TAIGA SHIOKAWA, Novi ,Jr. M: A ODP Region II and Michigan Jaguars club standout, Shiokawa is starting to gain college attention for his play. He is a third-year starter coming out of the loaded KLAA, where he earned All-KLAA and all-district honors last year. He is versatile to play a multitude of positions and has great technical skills and field vision.
39. STEFANO MORACCINI, Macomb Dakota, Sr. D/M: Versatile to play in the midfield, up top at forward or even in the backfield as a lockdown defender, Moraccini is one of the state’s most versatile players. He helped the Cougars to a 12-2-4 record and a MAC Red Division title last season after scoring four goals with 14 assists all while drawing the assignments of marking the other team’s top players.
40. JOSH ADAM, Brighton, Soph. D: Clearly one of the state’s top sophomores playing high school soccer, Adam has the tools for greatness and ability to eventually play at the next level. He is a great communicator and highly-skilled player who holds the back line together. An ODP Region II player on the borderline for the national pool, Adam has turned down opportunities to play for several Developmental Academy programs.
