Midwest Showcase Returns to Michigan

James Ross

Last year's Midwest Showcase presented by Maximum Exposure was one of the most talent laden events in the region. Here's a look back at last year and a look ahead to what we can expect this year.

The Best of the Midwest Showcase held at the Al Glick Fieldhouse on the University of Michigan's campus was a well attended event last year and it is looking like it will be the same this year, when it takes place on February 20th.

The event last featured several eventual Division-1 commits:

In addition to those commits, Chicago Simeon lineman Chris Bryant, Chicago Urban Prep defensive tackle Mason Fuller and Cleveland Glenville linebacker Frank Clark, both of whom have multiple Division-1 offers and are making their choices soon were at the event. Shawn Conway, a three-star receiver who committed to Michigan, but is going the JUCO route was also in attendance. Devonte Snyder, who has offers from Cincinnati, Akron and others was one of the top linebackers at the event. One of the state's top running backs, Marques Stevenson, who has an Air Force offer and lead his team to a state title was one of top backs in attendance.

Several other members of the 2011 class who have college opportunities also participated. Matt Craven will be a preferred walk-on at MSU, Montel Roberts has a scholarship offer to Indiana State, Stanely Scott has an offer to Youngstown State, Keith Moore has several offers, including Grand Valley State and Wayne State.

Several top juniors who already have offers, Jordan Diamond, Matt Godin, Evan Winston, Terry Richardson, James Ross, Royce Jenkins-Stone, Laron Taylor, Daryl Goldsmith, and others also attended, along with sophomore Shane Morris, who already has two offers.

The event consists of position drills, 1-1s and 7-7s, so participants do not have to worry about running 40s or shuttles.
