Football season may be over, but before looking ahead to boys basketball season, which starts next week, Kosmo has looked at some postseason all-area teams and noticed some great senior players who haven't committed to college programs yet.
Here are Kosmo's best football players who are seniors in Oakland County who haven't committed anywhere yet.
Anthony Darkangelo, Novi Detroit Catholic Central - Kosmo doesn't know what college program wouldn't want a player that not only goes 100 percent on every play, but excels wherever he is at on the field. He's a hard-hitting linebacker and a punishing running back, but he could probably do good at other positions as well. He's simply a player that makes plays and would give any college program his all.
Austin Johnson, Orchard Lake St. Mary's - A little undersized, which is why college coaches haven't shown as much interest. But boy can Johnson get it done, no matter which side of the line it is. He's a disruptive force along the defensive line and a pile-mover along the offensive line that helped anchor the running game for St. Mary's. He's one tough kid and hopefully he gets an opportunity.
Jake Slobin, Farmington Hills Harrison - The heart-and-soul of Harrison in the trenches for the past two years, Slobin is about tough of a lineman as the county has had the past two years. He had over 80 tackles this year on the defensive line for the Hawks and also was durable enough to dominate on the offensive line as well. Isn't the biggest around physically, but boy does he have a big heart.
Nick Booker, Lake Orion - While teammate Derric Williams earned a scholarship offer this week to Eastern Michigan, Booker is still awaiting an opportunity. Given how smart, athletic and fundamentally sound he is a defensive back, he sure deserves one to play at the next level. Has similar traits to Jordan Kovacs at Michigan.
Matt Kosmalski, Walled Lake Northern - This is a kid who can also play anywhere and contribute to any college program in a variety of ways. Whether it's as a tough runner, a playmaking wide receiver or a shutdown defensive back, Kosmalski is as versatile as they come. He helped lead Northern to heights previously not attained, and he could definitely be an asset for a college team.
