Orchard Lake St. Mary's 2017 LB Josh Ross

The Wolverines, a Michigan affiliated blog with, caught up with St. Mary's linebacker Josh Ross following the team's week one victory over Detroit Loyola at the Preps Kickoff Classic, discussing his loose top four of Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Ohio State.

Ross said that he feels comfortable whenever he visits East Lansing while also calling Mark Dantonio a great coach.

The 6-foot-1, 210 pounder plans on traveling to South Bend this upcoming Saturday when Notre Dame takes on Texas.

He's the No. 4 ranked inside linebacker in the nation and No. 3 overall player in the state of Michigan.

Detroit King 2017 ATH Ambry Thomas

Ambry Thomas was another sought after recruit from the state of Michigan who participated in the PKC at Wayne State this past weekend, who came away with the game's MVP honors after Detroit King defeated Warren De La Salle.

Thomas told reporters that he plans on visiting Michigan State when Oregon comes to town on Sept. 12. He also plans on visiting Notre Dame, Tennessee and Pittsburgh, among others.

Thomas is the No. 11 ranked cornerback in the country.

Ann Arbor Skyline 2017 WR Hunter Rison

Andre Rison, the former Super Bowl champion, described his son, Hunter, as a kid who's very mature for his age, after seeing the reaction Hunter gave to the referee when the Michigan State commit was called out of bounds in the end zone, despite having one foot inside the white line.

"Good call ref," Hunter said on the video.

The call prevented Rison from grabbing two touchdown receptions during Ann Arbor Skyline's 38-14 win over Westland John Glenn, snapping the program's 12-game losing streak. The 2017 recruit finished the night with five catches for 162 yards and a touchdown.

Rison is the lone MSU commit in the junior class and No. 6 ranked player in the state of Michigan.
