  1. with all due respect - 300 best players from the S.E. Michigan area? I am assuming 'watch list" is for those who might get a college offer? I think 300 is so high that you are just naming names. For this region maybe look at the top 3 by position at best.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Thanks for the feedback. But last year I was successfully able to compile a list of 300 players and still had to leave some players off because they did not fall inside the 300.

    http://www.thedzonefootball.com/2012/02/southeastern-300-preseason-class-of.html


    For me it's not about deciding who is better than who, rather. Just who to keep an eye out for in the class of 2013.

    I prefer to show a lot of recognition in a larger number than just a handful of players.

    1. what is your definition of success? Completing a list? Why are they worthy of extra attention? I don't have a problem with a list - I just think you have diluted it so much that it really is just for your websites's benefit so you can get eyeballs from all of them.

      Delete
    2. What I mean by successfully putting a list together. Is finding the best kids from each team out of the 218 schools in "Southeastern Michigan" and compiling it for people's viewing. How many blogs in the USA are able to spend as much time researching and promoting the sport as we do?

      Probably few to none, if I had to guess those blogs would be based from Florida, Texas, California, and maybe Ohio. Those first 3 states produce so much college football players, it's ridiculous.

      I don't see how it's diluted since I seriously attempt to find the 300 best players. Not just select players name's from a hat lol.

      But that's your opinion and you are mistaken if that's what you think high school football coverage is about.

      Delete
    3. ohh Jeff,

      That is what (your) coverage is about though and you know it. 300 kids who are top in S.E. Michigan is such a ludicrous range. What are the fans "watching" them for? Is it to see a potential college player, just watch a good player (that's ok too), or that they are the best on a team that loses every game in a low division? I don't understand the premise of your watch list.

      Oh and you might want to brush up on when to start a new paragraph. All of that could have been written in one.

    4. jeff there just pissed you didnt put his name on the list keep up the good work jeff from your boy JT

    5. I must say I'm highly disappointed that Kyle Dorrell is on this list over Jared Hall. Hall was all-conference and the best player for Michigan Center in the class of 2013. Aswell as a top player for the cascades conference class of 2013

  3. Nobody from Flint Powers?

  4. No I do not have anyone from Flint Powers because I don't include the Big Nine in my Southeastern Michigan cover area.

  6. lol^, another kid transfers to cass, sure they don't recruit.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Well if Cass Tech recruits, there are schools that have recruited in the 50's and still do.

    Idk if CT recruits or not but it's ultimately a players and family's choice to attend a certain school. I know there are personal reasons involved other than athletics so I have not made assumptions on it.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Let Cass Tech get students any way they can. Stop whining about it. As long as they are following the rules then it's all good (and my son plays hockey for a Catholic School). CT is not unbeatable - just ask Harrison.... If our football squad has a couple players in their normal positions for that game and we run some coverages that were not stale in the 1980's - then you have a different outcome in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Don't argue with that clown above I think your list is fine. I think it's good to include a lot of kids to watch out for because we have so much talent in this area

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. there is not that much talent in this area. that is really the point. 300 is a number bigger than the NATIONAL rating/scouting services for their top lists. Why would southeast michigan have 300 ?

      Delete
  10. This is my last point I am making before, I continue to respond to disrespect you are showing the coaches, players, and everyone else involved in the state of Michigan.

    Last year I made a list of 300 players, no one cared besides people who only stick their nose in high school football. Anyone who has a pulse or knows whats going on, knows there are at least 300 very good players in the Southeastern region, with 218 schools the average amount of players in the region is 8,720 kids. That is a VERY generous range considering I only multiplied 218 by 40. Which is a very low number even for Division 6 schools. Sure not every school has a roster of 40 but considering Brother Rice had 103 kids on their roster. Even 11 x 218 is 2,398 and of 300 thats only 12% of the kids which is not a high percentage.

    Also well over 200 kids TO MY KNOWLEDGE signed or were preferred walkons in the area alone. So basically 300 kids went onto play college football in the class of 2012. If you think there is no talent BUT YET kids are going to playing in college. Then don't even waste your time trying to convince me there is no talent.

    Not trying to be disrepectful at all but this isn't your grandpa's high school football blog this is 2012 where people WANT information and they want a lot of it. That's why I formed the blog in the first place, I was tired of this cliche niche where very little credit was given to the state of Michigan for football. I'll single handily change that by myself!

  11. Jeff, You do a great job. You must have thick skin and Just avoid the idiots. The people reading these can decide for themselves if these kids add up. The poster must be upset that either his Kid is lumped in with others that he feels doesn't deserve to be listed with Jr, or His dreams are shot because Jr is not even in the top 300 listed. Either way it will never end. Some of these Kids will fall off the radar and more will end up on the list as time goes By. Thank You for taking the time to give us a list of athletes to watch for.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Jeff, my grandpa didn't have a blog just so you know. No, I am not upset because "jr" isn't on the list, nor because I was a failure at sports. I don't know what the criteria is. I didn't say "you shouldn't" and I also said "providing the attention is good". I would highly challenge that 200 kids from S.E. Michigan moved on to college ball at any level and as a PWO or scholarship athlete is not correct. If you have the list I will stand corrected. Nationally 5.8% (NCAA) of seniors go on to play some level of college football. Your first assumption includes all players (number on a squad) so you are already inflating things. If we use your number of 218 schools and an average amount of SENIORS (I will use 12) then you get a pool of 2616 kids. Even with this you get a large number of 151 kids that move on to college football. So my question is more "why 300 and what is the reasoning". I'm not saying it's wrong, just what is it. If you use my numbers then your list of 300 is saying watch kids for other reasons than they are college football caliber (again, nothing wrong with that).

  13. Here's the list of kids signed its actually around 190 I thought it was over 200 but I haven't really updated it either and again that's only to my knowledge.

    http://www.thedzonefootball.com/2012/02/southeastern-michigan-football-signing.html

    The reasoning is simple, it's mostly kids with college potential or other's who don't have the measure-ables but are still good high school players. That's how the list is formed.

  14. Hey Jeff, i Brandon Harding is definitely someone to look out for this upcoming football season. Saw him at some future camps he's been doing pretty well caught attention from alot of reporters.. Just hope he can get a qb to get him the ball this year..

  16. I do believe Pat Finn from Almont could be a player to watch this year. As a junior last year he lead Almont in rushing through the playoffs, until he tore ligements in his ankle against lumen Christi. That's just a thought other than that I love e list.

  21. In all seriousness, being a coach in Michigan, and having kickers on my team with talent, I would really like to know how this McGrath kid made the list? What sets him apart from the other kickers in the state? I truly do believe my kicker deserves a spot but thats another rebuttle for another time.

  23. I appreciate the biased opinions...but why Jeff?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I had McGrath on my All Southeastern Team as a Junior and he had very good statistics. Besides from having good statistics, he is drawing college attention.

    I do not know if he will get offers to kick or if he will choose/want to walk on at the school of his choice but it only validates that he is probably the top kicker in the state.

    I don't mind putting kickers on here, because I understand their value. Just ask the Plymouth coach when Kyle Brindza was there.



    What's the information on your kicker though? If you guys are in Southeastern Michigan and if you believe he deserves a spot, I'd likely add him.

    Part of this list is from what I know personally but also part of it is from coaching recommendations.


    Thanks,
    and by the way, this has been my only response to you, I didn't post the link, that was somebody else :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. McGrath will get offers. He has more interest than the average guy on this list. If you ask me that is exceptional. Sorry coach but I don't know any other kickers in the state that have the credentials he has. As for Jeff, I am interested in how you incorporated coaches into this? Do you call them and ask how he kicks or what?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I didn't use a coach for McGrath I seen him live, highlight video, and stats.

    I was saying for other players coaches send me mail and stuff like that.

  27. With all due respect, none ofyou can speak on the behalf Jeff can. He has more football experience than any of you as far as recruiting and reporting. Try and fight him. It clearly is going so well already.

  28. Not only do the Westside Christian Academy have a player in Darryl Mongomery,they have a top recruit in William Johnson 6'2 LB, and Marcus Morant, 6'2 LB, and 6'7 Kion Seals WR/FS, EJ Brown is a New student from the state of Florida he will turn alot of heads, 6'3 1/2 LB/ TE can run for his size.

  30. This is a solid list overall. However, two names I saw left out are Garrett Ross, WR from Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes and Jake Doetsch, RB from WOLL. I understand they are probably not on your list due to WOLL's 4-5 record last season, but believe me these kids are studs.

    1. Yeah I understand. A responsibility I put on myself is to find the talent in the region and not basing it off of the school they play for. Since to me that's irrelevant when it comes to individual talent.

  38. Hey just giving you a heads up on another player (I gave you Eric Wilson from Thurston last year, ended up signing with Northwestern). Cameron Thomas from South Lyon East, I know you have him listed but he is much better than the recognition he has been getting so you may want to rank him pretty high when fall rolls around. He just got an offer from Western Michigan & Bowling Green. Ball State just came to watch him throw yesterday, Wisconsin and Eastern Michigan coming next week. I am his personal QB Coach and I was with him last week at the Elite 11 Camp in Columbus and I thought he did amazing, he was in a group with Malik Zaire (Notre Dame committ) & I thought he out-performed Malik the entire day. Unfortunately for Cameron he plays for a school with only 800 kids and their schedule is against teams that average 1800 enrollment, if he played for a bigger school he would be nationally ranked by now.

    1. Good stuff man, I recall you saying about Wilson before he got all his hype.

      Check the interview I did with him, in the past few weeks.

    2. Western Michigan offered on May 4th
      BGSU offered May 5th
      Central offered May 14th
      Grand Valley offered May 18th

      He should be hearing from Toledo, Eastern, & Ball State within the next week. He is heading down to camps at Indiana, Wisconsin, & Kentucky in the month of June & will be making a decision soon after.

  45. I'm not sure how you compiled your list for Salem, but you have one player who didn't play a whole season last year and is not working out with the team now; and you missed Nick Howie...check him out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-Y1_cwVVW0

    1. Thanks for comment, Howie has good film. Did I make the right change? I am not sure how, now that I think about it.

    2. Actually, what I've heard is Ciciotti is not working out with the team now (which is a shame 'cuz he's good)...Broughman is solid.

  48. Jeff you're doing a good job with the resources you do have. I love the watchlist because rankings can be overrated & also there is talent in S.E. Michigan,not all D-1 but the other kids deserve exposure too!

    1. Thanks man. But yeah it's not all about D1-3. We have some good smaller schools like: Michigan COllegiate, Chandler Park, Ecorse, Hudson, Summerfield, etc.

  54. Hey Jeff,

    Keep an eye out for senior Austin Douglass QB/LB from Livonia Clarenceville. As a junior, Douglass started at TE/LB and ended up starting at QB the last game of the season against Annapolis HS (due to injury). With only a few days of practice, Douglass completed 7 passes, including an 18 yd touchdown pass. This summer, he has completely transformed into the quarterback position. He has a pretty solid build at 5'11 and 195 pounds, and is pretty shifty running the ball. 40 yd dash - 4.6 sec
