Detroit Public School League sends 21 scholarship players into college football

The Detroit Public School League was well represented Wednesday by 21 senior players expected to officially accept scholarships on college football’s National Letter of Intent Signing Day.
Renaissance High linebacker Lawrence Thomas, ranked the top recruit in the state by both the Detroit Free Press and Detroit News, was to sign with Michigan State. He will be joined at Michigan State by Southeastern High linebacker Ed Davis.
Cass Tech High, which posted a 12-1 record for the best season in school history, had 10 players expected to sign, including defensive back Delonte Hollowell, who is headed to Michigan, lineman Kenneth Nelson (Illinois), defensive back Kishon Wilcher (Toledo), and lineman John Jackson (Western Michigan).
Five other Technicians – quarterback Keith Moore, wide receiver Blake Blackwell, safety Sekou Shorter, receiver Keenan Smith and lineman Abiodun Sanusi – are headed to Saginaw Valley State, while running back Christian Burks will join Wayne State.
Other signees and their college choices include Central High offensive tackle Eric Crume (Syracuse); Cody High defensive end-linebacker Jarrell McKinney (Western Michigan); King High offensive tackle Montel Roberts (Indiana State), offensive guard Kevin Rubin (Northwood) and defensive back Ellis Ewing (Northwood); Crockett High linebacker Bilaal Collins (Northwood); Renaissance High offensive lineman-defensive tackle Quinten Boddie (Michigan Tech); Southeastern High defensive back Brandon McKay-Lee (Wayne State); and Western High quarterback Joshua Bailey (Notre Dame College in Ohio).
Severe winter weather forced the PSL to cancel Wednesday’s scheduled signing day press conference, but the league will acknowledge its college-bound football scholar-athletes Wednesday, Feb. 9, at 11 a.m., at the Detroit Public Schools’ Welcome Center.
