Recruiting news for multiple sports
First of all, one of the state's top football prospects has made a decision on where he'll play in college, as Southfield senior tight end/defensive lineman Ron Thompson has committed to play for Syracuse.
Thompson is a 6-foot-6, 235-pound manchild who is fast and shifty for someone his size. He'll likely be a tight end in college, and possibly an unstoppable one.
In addition, Wednesday is another important day for area high school athletes since it's national signing day for sports such as basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball and golf.
The whole county will be dotted with signing day ceremonies over the next couple of days, so keep reading the Oakland Press and MIPrepZone.com to see who is signing where.
Wednesday won't be signing day for football players. That day will come on the first Wednesday of February.
