Farmington Hills Harrison teammates and Michigan commitments Mario Ojemudia and Devin Funchess hosted Oxford this past weekend, as both players starred in the Hawks easy 34-7 victory.
Oxford tackle Collin Goetz a Central Michigan commit squared off against Ojemudia , and the four-star defensive end didn’t shy away from the matchup.
“It was actually fun,” said Ojemudia. “I like the competition. They played hard just like we played hard.”
The Harrison sack specialist Ojemudia finished the game with one sack and seven tackles, including a huge tackle for loss against SMU commit Prescott Line in the first quarter.
“During practice we just worked on their reads a lot,” he said. “And when were able to do that, we were able to execute much better.”
Funchess led Harrsion with four catches for 83 yards. The future Wolverine appeared injured after catching a 22 yard reception late in the second quarter. The four-star commit was able to finish the game with a slight limp in his step, but said it was nothing serious.
“It was my big toe, I had jammed it,” he said. “I had it stepped on earlier in the game. It had got jammed, and I didn’t know nothing about it.”
Both players were witnesses to Michigan thrilling comeback victory over Notre Dame under the lights last weekend. Funchess said it was a great experience, however it is all business from here on out.
“That was good while it lasted, but now I’m just trying to focus on our football team right now. We are just trying to make it back to the state championship game,” he said.
