When Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh chose to have his first satellite camp outside Indianapolis, kicking off the “Summer Swarm” Tour, it seemed like a curious choice.
U-M hasn’t had many impact players from the state in recent years — linebacker Chris Graham and safety Stevie Brown were starters in their careers, which ended in 2008, but by far the most notable in the past 15 years. (Though former quarterback Clayton Richard is pitching in the major leagues.)
Yet Harbaugh realized there is more talent coming and that showed in his 2016 recruiting as Michigan has three players in the class, quarterback Brandon Peters, who committed before the spring game, and Kiante Enis and Chris Evans, who committed after the satellite camp in early June.
Each started his senior season on Friday night and filled the stat sheet, some in much less than a full game.
For Peters and his Avon team, it was easy in the 41-0 win over Plainfield.
Brandon Peters' night is over with 5:33 left in the 4th. Michigan commit finishes with 5 TDs, 14 of 19 for 234 yards. @OrioleAthletics— Jake Thompson (@JacobEThompson) August 22, 2015
For Evans, it was similarly easy for his Indianapolis Ben Davis team, rolling to a 63-0 win over Arsenal Technical. By halftime he had four carries for 112 yards and three touchdowns.
Chris Evans with his 3rd TD, this time from 35 out. 4 touches, 3 scores. Giants up 28-0 with 5:02 left in 2nd quarter.— Kyle Cox (@BDCoachCox) August 22, 2015
Enis was just as impressive for Winchester, rolling to a 42-7 win over South Adams.
Kiante Enis told me Michigan wants him to come in as a RB. He ran for an estimated 200 yards and four TD's tonight. pic.twitter.com/F1iseR8jaY— Josh Newkirk (@JoshNewkirk7) August 22, 2015
