The 2021 football season is slated to kickoff on August 26th at noon and the action will not stop until Saturday evening. Most of the top 25 teams face tough competition this week and some winning streaks may be snapped early this season.

Below are the prospects we're aware of entering the game. We look forward to discovering more talent.

Cass Tech:

2022 DT/OT Deone Walker holds 34 offers and is an absolute terror to play against. He will make some huge plays in this game, but Southfield will have to limit how many big plays they give up with double-teams, etc.

2022 OG/DT Jackson Pruitt had a big off-season and saw his recruiting pick up to 33 offers and he trimmed his final list down to 7 schools. An athletic and versatile player who plays with a chip on his shoulder.

2022 WR/S Jameel Gardner (Bowling Green State commit) is an elite athlete and he'll go up and get just about anything.

2022 OG/OT Masai Reddick (Tennessee commit) is coming off a nice junior year and big off-season which saw him commit to SEC school Tennessee. Reddick is a solid pass block/run block lineman who always gets the job done.

2023 DE Jalen Thompson is coming off a massive sophomore season and immediately reaped the rewards as he picked up 16 offers since the season ended. Thompson is a tough to block pass rusher and can run.

2023 CB/WR Javen Sewell isn't afraid to mix it up with opposing DB's and can cover just as good as anyone in Michigan. It's kind of surprising he hasn't gotten his first offer yet.

2023 TE/WR Khamari Anderson is a monstrous target at 6'4 220 and moves extremely well and has good hands. The younger brother of Michigan signee Raheem Anderson.

2022 CB Míles Gilmore will have a bigger role with some graduates gone that were previously ahead of him and he'll take advantage of the opportunity.

2022 MLB Kyle Booker comes in with big shoes to fill this year behind Kobe King. The 6'1 225 lbs Booker already picked up an NAIA offer.

2022 RB Karriem Sharrieff is a huge-bodied RB who is a downhill runner and wouldn't be shocked to see him on defense as well this year.

2022 WR Nate Briggs is an explosive pass-catching machine who is a big threat in the Slot.

2023 QB Leeshaun Mumpfield returns after starting as a sophomore last year. Mumpfield is a true field general and can make tough throws.

2023 RB Shamar Snow is a quick and fast RB who is looking to make a name for himself this season.

2023 TE/DE RaSean Randall is a very intriguing prospect at 6'4 200 lbs. He looked good at receiver in 7on7 this year but has the frame to add much more weight to. He holds a Syracuse offer.

Southfield A&T

2024 QB Isiaiah Marshall returns for his sophomore season after a solid freshman season. Marshall was impressive in 7on7 this off-season and can lead the offense and direct his team well. Marshall holds 8 offers.

2022 WR/DB Dayvon Young is an explosive playmaker who can get open easily and has great speed. Young holds 8 offers.

2022 MLB/OLB Jerome Baker is a solid-looking prospect and looks the part of 6'1 225 lbs. Baker holds a D-II offer now and surely more will be coming.

2023 OT Aaron Bradley is an upcoming 6'6 275 lbs prospect and will have an opportunity to really kickstart his recruiting process vs. a good Cass Tech defensive line.

2023 CB/WR Darrell Jones has definitely looked the part of a future playmaker and he's coming off a solid off-season. Jones has good speed and is fluid in coverage.

2023 S Devon Buskin has grown a lot in the past year as he's now up to 6'1 170 and can come into the box and make tackles. Also has good ball skills.

2022 S Maxwell Wagstaff is a good-looking DB and can drop back, react and tackle well in space.
