Michigan Football Commitment Performance Recap: Peters Throws Six TDs in Victory

A full recap of Michigan's 2016 football commitments in their games from this past weekend.

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

    Hi, my name is Garrett Fishaw and I like to party. Wait, no. My name is Garrett Fishaw from MGoFish.com and I will be a recruiting contributor to Maize n Brew. And for my opening act, I have put together a roundup of Michigan's 2016 commitments and their performances in this past weekend's games, which included their quarterback commit showing out on national TV.

    QB Brandon Peters vs Brownsburg

    Taking on nearby Brownsburg and 2017's #1 quarterback/Tennessee commit Hunter Johnson, Peters led his avon Orioles to a big, nationally televised win.

    The Michigan commit showed off his elite talent and received several Andrew Luck comparisons, which I see in his style as well. To introduce himself to the world, Peters started off the game by dropping a dime for an 81 yard touchdown.

    Throughout the game, Peters showcased his composure and accuracy while also flashing the athleticism that Trent Dllfer was raving about at the Elite 11. Speaking of the Super Bowl champ, he also had this so say about Peters' performance:

    Another ESPN employee, John Buccigross, jumped in to praise Peters as well:

  • Final Stats: 20/28 for 335 yards, 6 TDs, 1 INT
  • Make sure to check out Peters' interview with Mike Sanborn, as well.

    RB Kingston Davis and LB Dytarious Johnson vs Smiths Station

    Michigan's power running back and underrated linebacker commitments helped keep the Prattville Lions undefeated on the year with a solid 28-7 win over Smiths Station.

    Here are the full game highlights:

  • Davis' Final Stats: 187 rushing yards, 1 TD
  • Johnson's Final Stats: 9 tackles
  • RB/ATH Kiante Enis vs Union County

    After putting together a really nice stat line in the first 3 games of the year which included over 500 yards rushing, around 8 yards per carry and 8 touchdowns, Enis helped lead Winchester to a convincing win over Union County, 39-8.

  • Final Stats: 21 carries for 65 yards and 1 TD
  • WR Brad Hawkins and DE Ron Johnson vs Highland Regional

    In their first real game of the season, Hawkins and Johnson helped lead Camden to a huge win over Highland Regional, 42-0. While I was unable to get their final stats (I know, I know. My bad), Hawkins did put the last points of the game on the board with a 26 yard touchdown run.

    Here are the game highlights:

    TE Sean McKeon vs St John's

    The only tight end commitment of the class dropped the first game of his senior year, 19-8 to the #2 ranked team in Massachusetts in St. John's. As for McKeon's performance, it's easy to see why he's under ranked as a tight end when he's only targeted once in the game:

    OT Erik Swenson vs Hinsdale South

    The first commitment of the class is just a man amongst boys at the high school level. He went up against Michigan State commit DE Josh King's Hinsdale South and though his team lost, he dominated on the offensive line and had himself an all-you-can-eat pancake dinner.

  • Final Stats: 12 pancakes
  • OT Devery Hamilton vs Eastern Christian Academy

    Coached by fullback Henry Poggi's father, Biff (yep, like Back to the Future), Gilman is one of the best high school football teams in the country and Hamilton is a big reason why. The big offensive tackle helped lead the Greyhounds to a very big win over Michigan commit LB Dele Harding's ECA, 42-14.

    OL Ben Bredeson vs West

    For the last time in his career, Bredeson helped lead his team to a big win over the Wolverines (West high school) and moved Arrowhead to a 4-0 record to kick off his senior year.

    OG Michael Onwenu vs Mumford

    Another offensive lineman commit with a very convincing win this weekend as Onwenu helped keep Cass Tech undefeated with a 42-9 win over Mumford.

    LB David Reese vs Southfield

    Plenty of commitments performed well this week but there may not have been a better individual performance than Farmington's David Reese. The two way player was a beast on both sides of the ball, wreaking havoc as a linebacker and full back, which has to make Jim Harbaugh smile.

    But in the end, his Falcons were handed their first loss of the season by injured Michigan commit RB Matt Falcon's Southfield Eagles.

    Full highlights

  • Final Stats: 12 total tackles, 3 TFL, 1 Sack, 1 FF for a TD, 1 Rushing TD
  • LB Dele Harding vs Gilman

    After a fantastic win over Rashan Gary and Paramus Catholic last week, Harding and ECA were dealt a bad loss to Michigan commit OT Devery Hamilton's Gilman Greyhounds, 42-14, to fall to 1-2 on the season.

    CB Sir Patrick Scott vs Douglass

    One of the newest Michigan commitments had himself a great game and helped lead the Riverdale Baptist Crusaders to a 2-1 start on the year after beating Douglass 17-8. As for Scott's performance, it's exactly what you'd like to see out of a lockdown corner.

    Game highlights.

  • Final Stats: Targeted only once, 0 completions and 3 tackles
  • CB Benjamin St-Juste vs Cégep Limoilou

    As for some north of the boarder news, St-Juste and Cegep du Vieux fell to Cégep Limoilou in a close battle 24-17. But good news is, the Michigan 2016/2017 commit had himself a nice game though he wasn't targeted too much.

  • Final Stats: 3 tackles and 1 pass breakup
  • ATH Chris Evans vs Center Grove

    Michigan's Swiss army knife commit led Ben Davis up against Indiana' #1 team, Center Grove, and lost 31-19 to fall to 2-2 on the season. As for Evans' performance, he played well but really didn't get going on the ground besides his two scores:

    Final Stats: 8 carries for 37 yards and 2 TDs, 9 receptions for 83 yards
