Legacy Football Combine Top Performers Overview

The Legacy Center hosted their 2nd annual Legacy Football Combine where players were electronically timed on their measurables.  Players were electronically tested in; 40-yard dash, short shuttle, vertical jump, broad jump, and L Drill.   Once the players performed their tests they went in to position drills before going into 1 on 1's, and 7 on 7.  Following the high school combine, the Legacy Center held the same event for middle school and younger players.  A phenomenal education talk by Mike Kostoff set the tone for a very valuable experience.

The combine featured a mixture of young and experienced players.  Saginaw Heritage 2018 QB Kade Peters was one of the most consistent quarterbacks on the day as he has a tall body and a strong / accurate arm. Detroit King 2019 QB Dequann Finn was in attendance and it was our first time we've seen him at a camp since he entered high school.  Finn like in the state final game, shows patience and composure as he goes through his reads.  A strong and quick release allows for many completions.  One face we've seen a bit lately is Lake Orion 2020 QB Blaze Lauer who has a strong arm and continues to grow in size and overall skill.

Davison 2018 RB Tariq Reid had over 2,000 yards and 37 touchdowns as a junior and also gaudy stats as a Sophomore, Reid looked good in drills as well as fluid in 1 on 1's out of the backfield.  Reid holds 2 early GLIAC offers.  Cabrini 2017 RB/WR Kyle Kessler is a well put together RB/Slot who is pretty mobile and has a good pair of hands.  Western International 2018 RB Darryl Ervin is a shifty back who possesses good hands.

At receiver the current and future talent of Walled Lake Western was on display.  Walled Lake Western 2017 WR Justin Thomas is a very strong route runner and very fluid in the process, he creates separation easily.  Walled Lake Western 2021 WR Justin Gabriel is also one to watch in the future as he's very active and working to steadily improve by the time he's on varsity at Western. Western International 2017 WR/DB Devin George creates separation well and hauled in a tough 1-handed catch in 1 on 1's.   Wayne Memorial 2018 WR/LB Reggie Micheaux was one of the best put together receiver prospects in attendance as well as a potential prospect at OLB.  Micheaux is unknown, but could quick turn heads with his physical presence and size.  Redford Thurston 2018 WR/OLB Erik Gibson is a fast and physical receiver whose name should be mentioned more into the future.

The Linebacker corps was led by Walled Lake Western 2018 LB/RB Jonathon Moffett.  Moffett has great size at LB and moves very well.  Moffett is definitely a name you'll start to see more and more.

For the defensivebacks, Alma 2017 DB/WR Anthony Humm is a very solid cover corner with great ball skills.  His instincts from on-field experiences have improved tremendously and he breaks on the ball much quicker.  Reese 2017 S Jacob Galsterer is another who has improved since we seen him as a Sophomore at Michigan's camp.  Galsterer has great sideline to sideline speed and really improved his physical tools.

The offensive line standout was River Rouge 2019 OL Dontrell Walker who is an interior guy, still growing and learning, but has good technique and will be interesting to his growth.

The defensive line group had a good showing with a mixture of speed rushers and physical DL.  Eisenhower 2018 DE Henry Janeway is a name shooting up on a lot of college recruiting boards.  The 6'4" 190 lbs DE/OLB/WR a very athletic and physical specimen who has the ideal height for a recruit, but will be looking to add more pounds to his frame.  Janeway was solid in drills throughout the day and was perfect in 1 on 1's.  Chelsea 2018 DE Ronnie Buford should also be a name that will boost up in the near future, as Buford is a very athletic and agile DE, who should draw looks for a school looking for an DE/OLB hybrid or just develop into a very freak pass rusher.  Buford showed some devasting moves in getting past offensive lineman with a near flawless showing.  Pinckney 2019 DE/TE Jake Price is a very physical player who we look forward to seeing more.  Madison 2018 OL/DL Jeremiah Reed is a strong interior defensive tackle who has performed at a very high level the last two times we seen him in December.  Reed displays very good footwork for his size and definitely has a high ceiling.
