Recruiting Battle to Watch
In this week’s recruiting battle, we’re going to the defensive side of the ball to take a look at Josh Schell out of Mount Pleasant, MI. Schell has 21 offers, including ones from Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, and Toledo. At six-foot-four and 225 lbs., he has a frame that a strength and conditioning program can work with and has the strength to go with a high motor, as you can see on his Hudl film. The thing that Schell will have to work on is to become more proficient at using his hands to get off blocks, but he has all the physical tools to be productive at the next level.
Fire Recruiting Graphic of the Week
Speaking of Mt. Pleasant, Central Michigan is coming in hot with this week’s Graphic of the Week. It’s a very clean graphic with a lot of great touches, such as the state outline and the signatures. As always, feel free to submit nominees for Graphic of the Week to @MAC__Crootin.
