Over the first six weeks of the AAU season one of the hottest names on the circuit has been Jalen Brunson, a point guard from Des Plaines (Ill.) Stevenson. The 6-0, 170-pound sophomore has impressed while playing with the talent-rich AAU club Mac Irvin Fire.
Ranked the No. 7 player in the 2014 class by Fox Sports Next, Looney is the model of versatility. He lived up to his five-star billing at the Spiece Run N Slam All Star Classic in Fort Wayne, Ind., last weekend.
Ranked the No. 4 cornerback in the country and No. 11 player overall, Peppers has been regarded by pundits as one of the country’s top prospects regardless of class for well over a year.
With spring practice done, the collective focus of coaches across the country has fully shifted to recruiting. One underclassman already garnering a great deal of attention is sophomore linebacker Ricky DeBerry.
Ways' story bears a striking resemblance to Drake Harris’. Both players considered themselves basketball-first prospects before switching their long-term focus to football after showing difference-making ability on the gridiron.
When Michigan steps into the Big House for its annual spring game Saturday, it won’t just be looking to make strides on the field. It will be looking to make them off it, as well. Many of the Wolverines’ top recruiting targets will be attendance, one of which will be Clairton (Pa.) Thomas Jefferson High linebacker Chase Winovich.
