PONTIAC, Mich. – Another year, another wave of talent.
Top247 2014 CB Damon Webb was the top performer at Saturday's Adidas Showcase.
The class-of-2015 looks like a special one in the state of Michigan following Saturday’s Sound Mind Sound Body Maximum Exposure Adidas Winter Showcase, held inside the Pontiac Silverdome Bubble. Several prospects that just finished their sophomore seasons shined on what was a foggy morning.
247Sports takes a look at the Top-10 performers.
1. Damon Webb, 2014, Detroit Cass Tech, Cornerback
On a day where his younger peers put in work, Webb proved he was the top prospect at the showcase. The Top247 junior continues to add bulk to his 5-foot-11, 180-pound frame. He is quick, has good hips, can play physical and always seems to make plays on the football. Holding early offers from the likes of Michigan, LSU, Michigan State, Ohio State, West Virginia and Wisconsin, Webb has performed well at these camps going back to his freshman year, and the great thing about him is he continues to improve each time we see him.
Will visit Michigan and Michigan State for bowl practices and plans to get to an Ohio State basketball game in January.
2. Michael Weber, 2015, Detroit Cass Tech, Running Back
The next big thing out of Cass Tech had a heck of a postseason in helping the Technicians win a second-straight state championship, and the 5-foot-10, 190-pound Weber carried it over to this particular camp. Weber is a good looking prospect on the hoof, ran a 4.45 40-yard dash and is an all-around athlete that can catch the football. Has the look of a future highly recruited player.
Plans to hit both Michigan and Notre Dame for a bowl practice. He attended games at both schools this fall.
Saint Clair Shores (Mich.) South Lake 2015 OL Kyonta Stallworth had a great showing in 1-on-1s, where he matched up with all the top DEs including Lawrence Marshall.
3. Kyonta Stallworth, 2015, Saint Clair Shores (Mich.) South Lake, Offensive Tackle
The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Stallworth was dominant in 1-on-1s, delivering a punch that typically sent defenders backwards. Moved well laterally and like Weber, figures to be one of the more highly-recruited sophomores in the state.
Michigan has increased the interest according to Stallworth’s coach Chan Brock.
4. Romello Ross, 2015, Detroit (Mich.) Western, Athlete
Worked out at receiver. Showed his athleticism and burst during drills and was the toughest cover during 1-on-1s. The only player that was able to get open against Webb. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Ross has the ability to play a number of positions on the next level.
Visited Michigan during the fall and is high on the Wolverines.
5. John Kelly, 2015, Oak Park (Mich.) High, Athlete
Another well put together fluid athlete that can change direction and really run. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Kelly is at his best with the pads on but can also shine in an event like this with his physical attributes including a long frame. Has a chance to be highly recruited.
It was easy to see the upside Southfield (Mich.) High 2014 DE Lawrence Marshall has.
Kelly plans on visiting Michigan State for a bowl practice and attended games in East Lansing and Ann Arbor during the fall. Ohio State was recently in to take a look at Kelly.
6. Lawrence Marshall, 2014, Southfield (Mich.) High, Defensive End
The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Marshall had a big week, landing offers from Michigan and Pittsburgh and he feels Ohio State could be next. The upside for Marshall is apparent as he continues to grow and has the frame to add a lot of bulk. He was quick off the edge and had a variety of pass rush moves . Marshall uses his hands well.
Marshall has Michigan as his early leader and plans to hit a Wolverines bowl practice.
7. Jayru Campbell, 2015, Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech, Quarterback
Heated up during 1-on-1s. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Campbell was accurate during the competition portion, hitting receivers in stride. Threw the football with good velocity and has a poise and command about him.
Holding early offers from Alabama, Notre Dame and Eastern Michigan, Campbell said he was hoping the Crimson Tide would win the SEC championship and play the Irish for all the marbles. He plans to see both the Irish and Michigan for bowl practices and says that Bobby Williams at Alabama, Chris Singletary with the Wolverines and Chuck Martin at Notre Dame are his three-best relationships.
8. Tymeon Ollison, 2015, Akron (Ohio) Buchtel, Cornerback
Saint Charles (Ill.) East 2015 OL Brennan Bosch had a really good day during 1-on-1s.
Ran run of the faster 40 times of the day at 4.35, the 5-foot-8, 160-pound sophomore was the best cover corner outside of Damon Webb on Saturday. Still developing physically, Ollison stuck to receivers like glue. Watch the first play on his highlight and you know he’s a big hitter as well.
9. Brennan Bosch, 2015, Saint Charles (Ill.) East, Center
At 6-foot-2, 250-pounds, Bosch is undersized but makes up for it with really good feet and playing with a mean streak. Bosch did not lose a 1-on-1 rep against bigger defensive tackles and put his 315-pound two-rep bench press max to good use, overpowering larger players. Has good technique and could blossom into a really good center prospect. Already has an offer from Illinois. Bosch is really high on Northwestern. He is the younger brother of Michigan commit Kyle Bosch.
10. Curtis Doyle, 2014, Alma (Mich.) Senior, Offensive Tackle
At 6-foot-6, 270-pounds, had one of the best frames at the event. Showed very well in 1-on-1s, holding off defenders with his long arms. Doyle visited Michigan State for five games this fall. He says that Iowa is the program showing him the most early attention.
