The D Zone will be covering this Friday evening game as #13 Clarkston (7-1) hosts #15 Oak Park (7-1) both teams are winners of their OAA Division, Clarkston - Red and Oak Park - White. Clarkston will head to the Division 1 playoffs the following week as they'll look to defend their Division 1 State Championship from 2017 while Oak Park will head to Division 2 and they'll look to make a run after falling in the Regionals last year.

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


2021 OL Garrett Dellinger is the #3 ranked prospect in the Class of 2021 by The D Zone as Dellinger is a 6'6 255 lbs monster in the trenches. Dellinger spent the entire off-season by playing high school and AAU basketball so is definitely improving his burst and athletic abilities. Holds 5 offers including; Michigan State, Michigan, and Ohio State.

2021 OL Rocco Spindler is ranked at #5 in the Class of 2021 and is 6'4 250 lbs. Spindler had high expectations as a Freshman and more than met them by being an all-around great blocker and ability to get up field and block the next level. Spindler holds the same offers that Dellinger has.

2019 K/P Tristan Mattson is the next excellent kicker/punter to come out of Clarkston as the Wolves have been producing all-state and highly regarded kickers/punters. Mattson is committed to Buffalo and will be a key piece in this game.

2019 QB Jake Jensen is a dual-sport athlete who also played on the Wolves Class A basketball state championship team in 2018. Jensen 6'2 170 lbs has been impressive with 1 year of playing Varsity, he recently got his first offer from Lawrence Tech.

2019 WR/OLB Max Nicklin is a lengthy 6'2 190 lbs receiver prospect who can catch a lot of balls in his range.

2019 DE/LB Jay’viar Suggs is a 6'1 215 lbs prospect who moves great for his size and is physical with good versatility.

2019 CB/RB/ATH Jake Honstetter is a 5'11 190 lbs versatile player who does everything for the Wolves after previously playing at Holly. The 4-year varsity starter has a Division II offer from Colorado School of Mines.

2019 WR Joey Steger is a 6'2 180 lbs possession receiver for the Wolves who is a nice vertical threat as well.

2019 LB Brendan Barker is a solid LB prospect at 6' 190 lbs who closes gaps well and is a sure-tackler.

2020 WR/DB Zach Reid is 6' 160 lbs and is an upcoming prospect who runs routes well and is a good blocker. Defensively he's really come on his own this year and has good technique.

2020 WR Matt Miller is a 5'10 160 lbs receiver who runs crisp routes and has good ball-skills.

2019 RB Jake Billette is a nice physical and strong RB for the Wolves.

Oak Park:

2019 QB Dwan Mathis is the #13 ranked prospect in the class of 2019, as the Ohio State commit had a nice summer, competing in the Nike Elite 11 and is a quarterback with elite athleticism.

2019 RB/CB Torriano Richardson is the #76 ranked prospect in the class of 2019, as Richardson is a speedy prospect who has drawn some MAC offers but remains uncommitted.

2020 OL/DL/LB Justin Rogers is the #1 ranked prospect by The D Zone in the Class of 2020 as Rogers is just a freak athlete at 6'4 305 lbs. Rogers also started playing MLB for the Knights this season, which is mind-blowing. Rogers currently holds 40 offers.

2020 WR/DB Enzo Jennings is the #6 ranked prospect in the Class of 2020 by The D Zone. Jennings who is 6'2 190 lbs is ranked as one of the best ATH's in the country as well as he holds offers from schools like: Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Florida, and Big 10 offers.

2020 WR/TE Maliq Carr is the #19 ranked prospect in the class of 2020 as Carr is a great athlete with 6'5 215 lbs size, which makes him a player you need to account for pre-snap and worry about his length. Carr is a dual-sport so he's also a superior athlete and it shows.

2020 DT Don Price is a high-motored 6' 300 lbs DT prospect and is ranked by The D Zone as the #40 prospect by The D Zone in the class of 2020. Price is a player who should continue to draw much more interest.

2019 WR Savontae Tyler is a very solid receiver prospect who always makes plays. Tyler is 6'3.

2019 CB Corion Montgomery is a long and lengthy prospect who is committed to Davenport and was a priority recruit for them.
