Saginaw Nouvel (Mich.) has a young, playmaking linebacker in Tyler Jacqmain.

Last season, Saginaw Nouvel won a state title, and on defense, one of their leaders was a sophomore, linebacker Tyler Jacqmain, a tackling machine who adjusted quickly to the varsity level.

"It was a lot more fast, but I enjoyed it because it was a lot more of a challenge and the biggest challenge was probably the pass defense. Freshman year, we didn't go against a lot of pass, so that was the biggest difference."

So far, recruiting has started slow, but more programs should find out about him this season.

"I've been getting some e-mails and stuff. Mainly just schools from the GLIAC. Saginaw Valley, Northwood, Grand Valley."

He did have a chance to visit an in-state program in the spring, one that he says is closing the gap on his favorite school growing up.

"My favorite college is Michigan, but I like Michigan and Michigan State. This year, I went down to Michigan State for a practice with our high school coach and met their coaches and I think Michigan State is starting to grow on me."

Jacqmain also had a chance to camp with a couple of schools.

"I went to Northwestern's camp and Saginaw Valley. At Northwestern, I think there were 87 different colleges there, but there were so many kids there that when you did your stuff, you could only do it once and the coaches there said they really weren't paying attention to the underclassmen."

If this season is anything like last year for Jacqmain, they'll start paying attention.
