With national signing day less than two months away, these are five players from the state of Michigan who deserve more attention on the recruiting scene.


Paul Hurley, Romeo QB - Arguably the most underrated and most important piece to the 2015 Romeo state championship team. Hurley stepped up in a big way on several occasions last season for the Bulldogs, proving he has both the talent and intangibles to be successful at the next level.

Donnell Alexander, Cass Tech DB - A shut down cornerback, Alexander made life difficult for just about any receiver he lined up across from in the 2015 season and will surely do the same in college. Whoever lands Alexander will be getting a true steal in the recruiting game.

Armani Posey, Detroit King ATH - Posey received his first Division 1 offer from Kent State, but it's clear that the Detroit King Jack-of-all-trades deserves far more offers than one Division 1 offer. Posey stepped up as one of the best signal callers in the state midway through the season and was also a standout on the defensive side of the ball and on special teams as well. Is there anything he can't do?

Jake Baldwin, Waterford Mott QB - Baldwin's teammate, wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick is one of the most highly coveted recruits in the 2016 class, and rightfully so, but don't forget about Baldwin. The Baldwin-Fitzpatrick connection was nearly unstoppable all year long and the senior signal caller was a big reason as to why.

Tru Wilson, Warren De La Salle DB - Wilson has three Division 1 offers (Army, Navy and Air Force), but the star secondary player deserves more attention at the Division 1 level. Wilson was the heart and souls of the De La Salle defense and a proven leader, but is also a very underrated playmaker. Whether it was on offense or on defense or special teams, Wilson was the definition of a true playmaker and should continue to be one in college.
