No shortage of talent once again in PSL title game between Cass Tech and King
Last year when Detroit Cass Tech and Detroit King hooked up at Ford Field for the city title, they boasted over 25 or more, Division I caliber recruits combined. This year will be no different, as the two will battle it out again this Friday in the rematch for the city crown, which the Technicians won 20-14. The teams will be slightly different, but the abundance of talent remains the same. Here are a few of the players you can expect to see make plays this Friday night.
Cass Tech 2015 RB Mike Weber (5'10", 213): Committed to Michigan, Weber is a tough runner and absolute game-changer that teams must plan for.
King 2016 WR Donnie Corley (6'3", 180): Complete with size, speed, and hands, Corley holds offers from Michigan, Notre Dame, and LSU.
Cass Tech 2015 DL-OL Josh Alabi (6'4", 270): A man among boys at the high school level, Alabi excels both ways in the trenches, and it going to Ohio State.
King 2015 LB Tyriq Thompson (6'1", 225): As sound, and productive as a linebacker can get, Thompson has a knack for finding the ball, and is already signed to Michigan State.
Cass Tech 2016 DB LaVert Hill (5'11", 165): Cass Tech's current stand out defensive back, Hill has good cover skills, and playmaking ability, with Big Ten, and ACC offers to match.
King 2015 OL-DL Kyonta Stallworth (6'4", 280): Committed to Michigan State as well, Stallworth is a terror on the defensive line, and moves well for his size at the tackle spot.
Cass Tech 2015 LB Michael Oliver (6', 233): The leader of Cass Tech's defense, Oliver is always around the ball, tackles well, and is a steal for Central Michigan.
King 2016 DB-WR Dontre Boyd (5'10", 160): Maybe not quite as good as Avonte Maddox, but he's close. He's lockdown at cornerback, and can hit the home run at wide receiver. Holds a Toledo offer as too.
Cass Tech 2017 WR Donovan Peoples-Jones (6'2", 175): They call him "The Freak" and for good reason. With a skill set beyond his years, Peoples-Jones is a threat to score at any moment.
King 2017 DB-WR Ambry Thomas (5'11", 160): He'll arguably be the fastest player on the field, and isn't afraid to show it. He's best on offense with the ball in his hands.
Cass Tech 2016 WR-DB Demetric Vance (6'2", 175): Vance holds a North Carolina State offer for wide receiver, but shines on defense, using his size and good ball skills.
King 2016 QB Mikale Washington (6'4", 175): Still developing as a passer, Washington is good when he's in a zone. He loves the deep ball, and his height and big arm stands out above the rest.
Cass Tech 2016 OL-DL Mike Onwenu (6'3", 335): Onwenu commands double teams on defense, and is a road-grader on offense, which is why several Big Ten schools want him.
King 2015 DE Caldin Rogers (6'4", 205): Maybe the most versatile player on the field, Rogers is too quick on the defensive line, and can catch passes at tight end.
Other notable players on Cass Tech: 2017 DB Donovan Johnson, 2015 ATH Ke'Von Sardin, 2015 DB Keshawn Gilmore, 2017 QB Rodney Hall, 2015 WR Sean Hodges.
Other notable players on King: 2016 DE Leon Page, 2015 OL-DL Dante Hollis, 2017 LB Cepeda Phillips, 2015 RB Demetrius Fullilove, 2016 DB Jesse Johnson.
