Why do most of the D-1 prospects come out of the east side of the state, particularly Detroit, while only one or two come out of the west side yearly? The west won ALL 8 state championships, yet the only big name recruits from there were Kevin Grady (...) and Ronald Johnson. (Note: Terrence Taylor also came from Muskegon.) The best teams and the best conference, the OK-Red (which has two state champs D-1 and 2 as well as excellent programs all throughout the conference, except Jenison), come from the west side but great players are from the east. Explain, please?
"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
