Comparing offers of Donnie Corley and Khalid Kareem



The Class of 2016 in Michigan's cream of the crop is breaking down a barrier that will lead to many new doors and paths for future players out of Michigan.  It's been well publicized how tough the Michigan rules are for football and basketball recruits in Michigan; with no spring practices, travel restrictions, tv restrictions, less practice during the season, etc.  When a Michigan High School player gets an offer from a school who normally doesn't recruit the Great Lakes State such as; Florida, Oregon, Alabama, Florida State, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Georgia, etc. It is in fact a huge accomplishment for the player, their family, and the high school program.

When a college offers a player it means more than just he was offered.  For some it's the "good break" they've been waiting for.  A scholarship for one year is in the thousands dollars and over time can add to 6 digit's of money earned for an education.  Many players use their time as a student-athlete to earn their; Associates, Bachelors, and Masters Degrees.  Some players don't take the academic part seriously and regret that later in life.




The Class of 2016's cream of the crop consists of; Farmington Hills Harrison 2016 DE Khalid Kareem, Detroit King 2016 WR Donnie Corley, and Ann Arbor Skyline 2016 RB/OLB Daelin Hayes.  Each one of them holds over 20 offers.

Ann Arbor Skyline 2016 RB/OLB Daelin Hayes really got the ball rolling as he was the first one to receive a Division 1 offer.  In January 2014 Michigan State became the first school to offer, a handful of offers dropped in on Hayes before he took a visit to USC, where he fell in love and committed on the spot.  Of Hayes 23 offers, 11 of them came after he was already committed to USC, so schools definitely have not laid off the pedal on Daelin Hayes but now that he is a Senior, he has been more and more locked in to signing with the Trojans on Signing Day and other schools have backed off.

The 6'3" 185 lbs Detroit King 2016 WR/DB Donnie Corley has been on a roll as of late with an engine of steam as he now reached 36 offers.  For Donnie Corley the first school to notice the King standout was Concordia, Ann Arbor back in November 2013.  The NAIA program was the first to offer Corley and since then, it's been offer after offer in that span, with Florida State last week being the latest to offer.

The 6'4" 252 lbs Farmington Hills Harrison 2016 DE Khalid Kareem will be remembered as having his recruitment blow up unlike anyone before him.  Kareem tore apart his Junior season with 18 sacks and 43 tackles for loss but it wasn't towards the end of the season that Northwestern and Bowling Green State offered.  Once November hit, Kareem had 10 offers in 16 days and since then it's been 26 offers.

Between, Kareem and Corley no player in the past few years has had the amount of offers they have which is an incredible statistic.  Kareem also made history when Rutgers became the 14th Big Ten school to offer him, becoming the first player from Michigan to ever earn all 14 offers from the Big Ten programs.
