2016 Michigan Football Commitment Performance Recap: Evans and Enis Run Wild

The playoffs are here for several commits and it brought out of the best of most of the Midwest commits, including Brandon Peters' 3 touchdown performance, Chris Evans' best rushing performance of the season and another incredible game for Kiante Enis.

Several 2016 Michigan commits kicked off their postseasons this past week while some were wrapping up their season. Either way, all but four of the commits walked away with a victory including a couple championships and multiple commits putting together their best performances of the season:

QB Brandon Peters vs Brownsburg

In a rematch of a national televised game earlier in the season, Peters led Avon to another beat down of Brownsburg and 2017's top QB recruit, Hunter Johnson. The Orioles won handedly, 61-14, and will set up a fun match up for Michigan fans as Peters will take on ATH commit Chris Evans and Ben Davis for the Sectional Championship.

Peters also put together great dominant performance in his best early 2000's Eminem costume (on the far right):

  • Final Stats: 12 of 18 for 260 yards and 3 TDs; 3 rushes for 21 yards

QB/ATH Victor Viramontes vs King

Though he didn't start the game because of a "unspecified discipline reason" (per The Press Enterprise), Viramontes came in the 2nd quarter and led Norco to a blowout win over rival King, 43-6.

  • Final Stats: 14 of 19 for 185 yards and 1 TD; 26 yards rushing and 2 TDs

RB Kingston Davis and LB Dytarious Johnson vs Lee

Davis and Johnson had good games but it wasn't enough as Prattville fell to the Lee Generals, 48-28, on Friday night.

  • Davis' Final Stats: 30 carries for 129 yards and 4 TDs

ATH Kiante Enis vs Eastern

Another week, another ridiculous performance for Enis. He averaged 25.6 yards per carry (no, that's not a typo) and led Winchester to a 1st round playoff win over Eastern, 62-6.

  • Final Stats: 14 carries for 358 yards and 7 TDs; 1 reception for 41 yards; 474 all-purpose yards

ATH Chris Evans vs Pike

Evans was another commit that sat out part of the game for his team, though his was because of a leg injury. But that didn't stop him from putting together his bet performance of the season as he racked up 4 TDs and led Ben Davis to a 55-27 playoff win.

As for Evans' match up with Brandon Peters in the next round:

  • Final Stats: 28 carries for 218 yards and 4 TDs; 1 reception for 14 yards

WR Ahmir Mitchell vs Lower Cape May

While Mitchell wasn't the star performer in this one (2017 RB Bo Melton, a name to remember, had 3 TDs), he helped lead Cedar Creek to a 48-0 win and moved to 5-1 on the season.

WR Brad Hawkins and DE Ron Johnson vs Bishop Eustace

The Camden duo helped move the Panthers 5-2 on the season with a 33-10 win over the Crusaders.

TE Sean McKeon vs Westborough

McKeon and Shepherd Hill have started to put it together in the last couple weeks. After starting the season 0-4, the Rams have won three straight including their win over Westborough, 35-14, on Friday night. And McKeon helped lead the way.

  • Final Stats: 3 receptions for 49 yards and 1 TD

OT Erik Swenson vs Proviso East

Swenson and Downers Grove South ended their season on a high note Friday night when they knocked off the Pirates 30-12 and finished the year 3-6.

OT Devery Hamilton vs FCA

Hamilton and Gilman are ranked #10 in the country and showed it once again as they handled Friendship Collegiate Academy 41-0 on Friday night.

OL Ben Bredeson vs Verona

Bredeson helped the Warhawks rush for over 200 yards on Friday night as they beat Verona in the playoffs 10-3.

OG Michael Onwenu vs King

In the PSL Championship at Ford Field, Onwenu and Cass Tech lost a close one to King, 27-25. It was a tough loss that the Technicians will look to forget as they move into the state playoffs.

DL Rashad Weaver vs South Broward

After winning homecoming king, Weaver helped lead Cooper City to a 22-12 win on Thursday night.

LB/FB David Reese vs Lake Orion

While there may be some questions surrounding Reese's commitment to Michigan thanks to the amount of offers he's landed recently, there isn't a question about his game. Reese starred on both sides of the ball but it wasn't enough for his team as Farmington fell to Lake Orion, 17-14.

  • Final Stats: 13 rushes for 125 yards and 1 TD; 13 solo tackles and 17 total tackles

S/LB Devin Gil and S Josh Metellus vs Cypress Bay

The Flanagan commitment duo helped lead the Falcons to another shutout and a 2nd straight district championship as they blew out Cypress Bay, 37-0.
