Unless you live under rock (or an adjacent cave to Kosmo without oxygen), you probably know that one of the most important days of the year is upon us as national signing day is on Wednesday for athletes in football, soccer and track and field/cross country.
Kosmo's spies are working tirelessly to compile the list of signees that'll run online and in Thursday's paper, and your seer is here to offer a few players who Kosmo thinks will shine at the next level despite being lightly regarded.
Anthony Darkangelo, Novi Detroit Catholic Central - Kosmo still can't figure out why more schools went after him. He goes 100 percent all the time and does everything well on the field. He's got the heart of a champion and if he was one of the top players to ever play at Catholic Central, he'll be a top player at Ferris State. No doubt, the folks in Big Rapids got a steal.
Chris Calvano, Clarkston - Quite possibly one of the more underrated players in the entire county, Calvano is a tackling machine that has committed to Grand Valley State. He was one of the central figures on a solid Clarkston defense and will do well at the next level in Kosmo's opinion.
Isaiah Gourdine, Farmington - Gourdine recently switched his commitment to Bowling Green when Butch Jones left Cincinnati for Tennessee, and he could end up being one of the top corners in the MAC in a couple of years. Kosmo loved following him at Farmington and he turned down bigger schools to play at Bowling Green.
Griffin Anderson, Brother Rice - Without question, Anderson was one of the top reasons why Brother Rice repeated as state champions. He became the team's top offensive lineman and a reason why the running game was so effective. He will sign with Pennsylvania, which has to be doing backflips it got a player like this.
Jake Slobin, Farmington Hills Harrison - It took a little while for Slobin to land a college opportunity, but he's not surprised Grand Valley State swiped him up. He was one of the toughest two-way lineman in the state the past three years and will bring his non-stop motor to the Lakers program.
