1. Logan Slaughter 6-5 248 So DL/OL Mendon
He’s a small town all-stater who would look big time regardless the size of the school he lined up for. Slaughter’s frame is ideal to put on good weight as needed. He tested as one of the strongest players at the combine, then backed it up with execution in drills. Won his matchups thanks to toughness and motor. Business-like, efficient worker given his age.
2. Nolan Meekhof 6-0 200 Fr RB/LB Grandville
You don’t necessarily think great running backs and Grandville, that could change with young Meekhof. There’s nothing meek about a freshman this big putting down back-to-back 4.6 40s.
3. LaSavian Majewski 5-7 185 So RB/WR Grand Rapids West Catholic
A transfer from Alabama who proved that Southern legs travel. Majewski had the second-fastest 40-yard time. Love his potential in the kick return game. This is a heck of a weapon to add to West Catholic next season, along with essentially an all-state newcomer in Mitchell Stantizek, who was one of the top overall juniors at the combine. Another West Catholic junior who played well was linebacker Max Boorsma, small for college but terrific right now.
4. Tommy Roush 6-3 260 Fr OL/DL Petoskey
His technique was sound in footwork drills. It got tougher for Tommy when upperclassman all-staters started beating on him in one-on-ones, but he kept his head in there and competed. Tested very well, and strength is no surprise he was a middle school all-American thrower in AAU track and field. Coaches love recruiting linemen out of the Big North, and in 2016 the league may have two more high-end recruits up front with Roush and Traverse City West’s Thiyo Lukusa.
5. Tucker Kloote 5-10 150 So QB Coopersville
West Michigan is crowded with talented, varsity veteran soph QBs. Kloote ended the season with a 200-yard, 2 TD game against Allendale, and the hot hand carried over to the off-season as he made a move to keep himself right in that top 5 for 2015. The coaches liked both his arm and his confidence.
