Who are some of the top 2013 in-state prospects?

Submitted by artds on July 4th, 2011 at 10:12 AM

We've been hearing about guys like Morris and Elmer for a little while now.

I'm wondering who some of the other top prospects for 2013 will be?

How is the state's 2013 class expected to compare to the 2012 class talent-wise?

I go to the same highschool as Poet Thomas, and this guy for sure is going to be huge.

I've seen some coaches from Notre Dame even stop by to talk to him. He plays with authority, and started on a varsity team that went to the state quarters as a sophomore. He's 6'6 295 already and trains with some of the top coaches in Michigan, (both in school and out).

He's not to sharp at algebra (same class lol), but he's already a high school stud.

I was the back judge for your home coming game against Ecorse (same day as the film crew was filming a scene from the movie Jinn).  I didn't take notice of Poet, but I thought your wide receiver -- the one who caught the winning touch down -- was pretty good.

The only other in-state offer we have according to TTB is Wyatt Shallman (DE / FB/RB-ish thing) from Catholic Central. http://touchthebanner.blogspot.com/p/2013-offer-board.html

I know there are a couple Cass Tech kids that are pretty solid as well, a DT and OT, IIRC.
Also, this is just my opinion, but it seems like the top prospects are better in 2013 so far in Elmer and Morris, but 2012 was probably deeper in-state.
But, they still have a while to go, and new kids could emerge or these kids could fall off, so we'll see.

and names that are probably being repeated.  This is from:


He says this is not in any particular order and just some names to keep a look out for and this is generally from Michigan's perspective.  Also, he has short blurbs on each that I did not copy


1)  Shane Morris (QB, 6-3, 185, 4.90, Warren De La Salle)

2)  Berkley Edwards (RB, 5-9, 172, Chelsea):  Younger brother of former Michigan star Braylon Edwards.

4)  Adam Coon (DL/OL, 6-5, 230, 4.80, Fowlerville): 

5)  Luke MacLean (DL/LB, 6-3,233, 4.85, Grand Blanc): 

6)  Wyatt Shallman (DL/RB, 6-3, 241, 4.92, Novi Detroit Catholic Central):

Even if they are Sparty legacies?

Jon Reschke's dad was a giant 6'8" tackle for MSU.  He seems like a heavy sparty lean.  It is reported that he is friends with Shane Morris and there seems to be a good on-field rivarly between the two.  


July 4th, 2011 at 10:59 AM ^

he included Elmer at the beginning, I just didn't copy him over:

First, I will give you the name of a Class of 2013 in-state sleeper who absolutely nobody is talking about.  He is an offensive lineman who could well follow in the tradition of Jake Long and recent Oregon signee Jake Fisher.  His name is Steven Elmer (6-6, 297, 5.15 forty, Midland High) and he could well have as much potential as any lineman in the state of Michigan.


Again, this was written in March before Elmer started getting all of his offers.


July 4th, 2011 at 9:59 PM ^

I haven't seen Brandon Moore play, but he sounds intriguing. I love big WRs (a la Braylon and David Terrell). Speaking of Braylon, I hope we are recruiting his brother. He could be part of a nice tandem with Dymonte (even we are recruiting him as a RB)


July 5th, 2011 at 12:01 AM ^

Offensive Tackle from Warren Mott. 6'7 315 lbs.  Not yet listed as he hasnt camped much. He was invited to M's camp last week on a Saturday and supposedly Hoke wants film from him.



July 5th, 2011 at 12:48 AM ^

It's nice to see that Hoke is already on top of 2013 prospects not being widely touted.  Plenty of time for Vrabac to impress if he has a good fall, though camping more this summer wouldn't hurt (if there are even still camps left?).

This summer I walked into ART in auburn hills and had a chance to see steve elmer and poet thomas training.For sure these are the 2 best linemen in the class of 2013 I stopped my training to watch them go at it. Steve Elmer is good But, I take Poet Thomas he was great. It would be very interesting to watch them in a game. however both need a little gunpowder. I guess you will have to wait until college since Elmer has committed to ND and Thomas has UM very high on the list. oh maybe I wasn't suppose to say that.....signed a homeboy.....
