Other top in-state prospects:
RB Caulton Ray of Brother Rice:
Brother Rice traveled down to Cincinnati to play Ohio powerhouse Archbishop Moeller High School. Moeller got the best of the Warriors in a 14-6 victory. Brother Rice quarterback Andy Lentz was lost for the season in game one and teams have been stacking the box with 8 or even 9 defenders to stop the run. Ray was unable to get on track and was held to under 100 yards.

Country Day rolled over Flint Kearsley by a score 42-7. Gray scored two touchdowns for the Yellowjackets on runs of 28 and 16-yards. Demens led a defense that allowed only one touchdown and under a 150-totoal yards of offense. The win improves DCC to 2-1 on the season.

CB Boubacar Cissoko of Cass Tech:
The Cass Tech vs Crockett game was supposed to be a close contest, but the Technichians got rolled over by a score of 26-0. The loss dropped Cass Tech to 1-2 on the season and it is obvious that the team needs to turn things around quick. With games the next two weeks against Denby and King, the season could be over unless they can get the ship righted.

Capers has been on campus several times since Mark Dantonio was hired at Michigan State. The Spartans offered Capers last winter.
Charles Hollowell of Detroit Renaissance High School:
Hollowell had an impressive game this past weekend as he rushed for 199-yards on 12 carries as the Phoenix rolled to a 38-7 victory over Detroit Southwestern. Though he is listed as a running back in the Rivals.com database, some believe Holowell could project as a defensive back or slot wide receiver at the next level. Hollowell is another example of just how good a year it is for talent in the Detroit PSL.
Class of 2008 Sleeper recruit:
Isaac Harper of East Lansing High School
The local track standout rushed for 162-yards on 19 carries and scored 5 touchdowns as East Lansing High School rolled to a 41-13 victory over Jackson High School.
