Jim Harbaugh's 2016 recruiting class has a ton of talent in it already. Many of those players begin their senior football seasons next week, but the state of Indiana kicked off its season last night featuring a trio of Michigan commitments.
We start with four-star quarterback Brandon Peters (Avon, Indiana), who led Avon HS to a huge blowout win over Plainfield.
Peters ended his night going 14 for 19 with 234 yards and five touchdown passes, which is a very nice start to what looks to be a monster senior year in store for him.
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
Something the Wolverines have taken steps to address in the 2016 cycle is finding speed and home run hitters to add to their offensive attack. Some more "firepower," if you will.
Three-star running back commit Kiante Enis (Winchester, Indiana) provided just that in his 2015 debut, helping Winchester HS roll to a 42-7 win over South Adams. Enis had just around 200 yards rushing and four touchdowns in the effort.
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
Four-star all-purpose back Chris Evans (Indianapolis, IN) is another weapon Michigan added in June as the Satellite Camp tour kicked off. He only had four touches on Friday, but made them count with 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
