Michigan Football 2016 Commitment Performance Recap: Kingston Davis is a "Freaking Stud"

Check out how Michigan's 2016 commitments fared in their mid-September match ups.

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan's 2016 commitments had themselves an up and down showing this past weekend with the majority of the pledges losing their mid-September match ups, including Devin Gil and Josh Metellus' nationally ranked Flanagan Falcons falling to an unranked foe.

QB Brandon Peters vs Whiteland

Though this game was not nationally televised like last week's game, Peters played like all eyes were on him as he led Avon to a convincing 34-0 win over Whiteland to move to 3-2 on the year.

  • Final Stats: 11/15 for 198 yards and 3 TDs

QB/ATH Victor Viramontes vs Mission Viejo

As for Michigan's other quarterback commit, his team did not fare as well in their big match up with Mission Viejo (CA). Though Viramontes played well, Norco (2-1) suffered their first loss of the season, 37-13, as the Diablos stayed undefeated (5-0).

When you watch Viramontes' highlights from the game, I noticed a couple things:

  1. His team needs to keep the popcorn off the sidelines as his receivers dropped several passes.
  2. You cannot dismiss the resemblance Viramontes has to (yes, I'll say his name) Tim Tebow in high school. Both are/were just more physically fit than 99% of the players they play with and against.
  3. Victor is a big fan of hurdling defenders and is a monster as a strong safety.
See for yourself:

  • Final Stats: 22/40 for 293 yards, 1 TD and 2 INT. 22 carries for 29 yards and 1 TD

RB Kingston Davis and LB Dytarious Johnson vs Phenix City

Michigan's two Alabama commitments dropped their first game of the season to the Red Devils 20-10 even though Davis had himself a day:

  • Davis' Final Stats: 146 yards rushing and 1 TD

RB/ATH Kiante Enis vs Cambridge City Lincoln

Enis has arguably been the best Michigan commit early on his senior campaign as he continues to run wild all over the Hoosier state. His latest act helped Winchester move to 4-1 on the season as the Golden Falcons beat the Golden Eagles 40-13 in a battle of the best golden bird mascots.

By the way, he can also play defense:

  • Final Stats: 20 carries for 196 yards and 2 TDs. 2 receptions for 80 yards and 1 TD. 3 tackles and 1 INT.

WR Brad Hawkins and DE Ron Johnson vs Delsea

In only their 2nd game of the season, Hawkins and Johnson dropped a heart breaker to the Crusaders 25-19. The loss moves the Panthers and future Wolverine duo to 1-1 on the season though both players had nice games, including Johnson who showed off his offensive skills by hauling in a 22 yard touchdown pass:

WR Ahmir Mitchell vs Buena

The latest commit showed fans once again that he's one of the more physically impressive recruits in this class by helping lead Cedar Creek to a big 34-13 win. Mitchell led the way with big plays on offense and defense to help the Pirates move to 2-0 on the season and handing the Chiefs their first regular season loss since 2013.

Side Note: Make sure to keep an eye on Mitchell's teammate Bo Melton. He on Michigan's radar is starting to come into his own as one of the more dynamic players in New Jersey's 2017 class.

  • Final Stats: 1 reception for 9 yards. 11 yards and 2 TDs on the ground.

TE Sean McKeon vs Leominister

McKeon and his Rams fell to 0-2 on the season after a tough loss to the Blue Devils, 36-26.

Though he didn't have the biggest impact on the offensive side of the ball, McKeon is another one of those all-around, Harbaugh-type recruits that find ways to plays.

  • Final Stats: 2 receptions for 26 yards and 1 fumble. 3 tackles and 1 TFL/sack.

OT Erik Swenson vs Addison Trail

The first commit of the class finally has himself his first victory of his senior season as Downers Grove knocked off the Blazers 37-21 behind another All-You-Can-Eat pancake party from Swenson.

  • Final Stats: 12+ pancakes

OT Devery Hamilton vs Paramus Catholic

Michigan's little known offensive tackle commitment is not only having a great season but is helping lead Gilman to the #23 ranking in the nation. Hamilton and the Greyhounds blew out Rashan Gary's Paramus Catholic, 41-17 and moved to 4-1 on the season.

OL Ben Bredeson vs Mukwonago

Bredeson and Arrowhead move to 5-0 on the season and remains the #1 team in Wisconsin after beating the Indians 24-13.

OG Michael Onwenu vs Detroit Renaissance

Ownenu followed suit along with the other offensive lineman commitments and led his team to a big win over the Phoenix 62-19 and remained undefeated at 4-0.

DL Rashad Weaver vs Hollywood Hills

Cooper City and Weaver pitched a shutout on Friday night by knocking off the Spartans, 17-0, on the road. And when you watch the Michigan commits highlights, you can start to see him really filling out physically and becoming a dominant defensive lineman for the Cowboys.

  • Final Stats: 4 tackles and 1 sack

LB David "The Beast" Reese vs Rochester Adams

Yeah, that's the nickname to remember. "The Beast" helped lead Farmington to a big time win over the Highlanders, 18-15 and, once again, showed he's one of the top players in the state and could be a really nice addition for the Wolverines.

CB Sir Patrick Scott vs Archbishop Spalding

The rangy cornerback commit and his Riverdale Baptist Crusaders had a tough night and were blown out 47-7 against the Cavaliers and moved to 2-2 on the season. As for Scott's performance, his defensive stats were not available but he did reel in one reception.

  • Final Stats: 1 reception for 6 yards

S Devin Gil and S Josh Metellus vs South Plantation

In the biggest upset of the week, nationally ranked Flanagan fell to the unranked Paladins on a last minute touchdown that gave South Plantation a 13-12 win. Though they lost the game, both Gil and Metellus showed off their physicality and range while each making several plays.

ATH Chris Evans vs Warren Central

While there are questions surrounding running back commit Matt Falcon's future, the staff has themselves another commit that is showing off his ball skills as Evans has been that game changer for Ben Davis everyone expected.

Though his team lost a tough game, 45-28, and dropped their 3rd game in a row, Evans had himself a nice day as a running back and receiver (though his final stats have yet to be released):
