Clarkston (MI) Kicker: "Michigan Looks Pretty Good"

Clarkston has won two state championships in the past two years. The recent success though has yet to be seen this season as they've lost two in three games.

Kicker Alex Kessman says an injury bug has plagued the Southeastern Michigan powerhouse, hitting the team's running back, linebacker and quarterback.

It fortunately hasn't affected Kessman, who told Tim Sullivan of that he converted a 56-yard field goal in the opener against Macomb County dynasty Macomb Dakota while also recording multiple touchbacks on kick offs.

It lead to Keeman receiving a visit to the Michigan-Oregon State. After watching the home opener win, Keeman said that kicker Kenny Allen and the team looked pretty good overall.

"I pretty much just went to watch the game. I was invited by Coach Erik Campbell," Keeman said. "He gave me some tickets for me my grandpa and my dad, and we went to the Champions Center. I got to meet the coaches. I got to meet Coach Harbaugh and see what Michigan is all about. We got to watch a little pump-up video and then after that we walked through the tunnel and got to check out some warm-ups then went up to our seats and watch the game."

Keeman also told the recruiting website that Pittsburgh is close to offering and will visit Florida and Louisville soon.
