Michigan took care of business against BYU on Saturday which was just icing on the cake for several of their 2016 commitments as the majority of the staff's senior pledges won their late September games. This also included one of their top offensive commits being compared to Reggie Bush after a ridiculous catch and run.

QB Brandon Peters vs Fishers

Peters is having, arguably, the best senior season out of any of the Michigan commits and continued it against 2017 safety target RJ Potts and Fishers. Avon moved to 4-2 on the season behind the arm and legs of Harbaugh's future QB:

If you're looking for some more Peters love, this is what Fishers' head coach told the IndyStar:

"They have a great group of receivers, and obviously one of the best quarterbacks (Brandon Peters) I’ve seen in a long, long time," said Fishers coach Rick Wimmer."

  • Final Stats: 21/30 for 225 yards and 2 TDs; 1 rushing TD

QB/ATH Victor Viramontes vs Citrus Hill

Michigan's other quarterback commit had himself a similar day as Peters, helping lead his team to victory with his arm and legs, which included another ridiculous 65 yard touchdown run:

It'll be really interesting to see what Viramontes can do with receivers who can catch the ball as he consistently missed out on big plays thanks to drops.

ATH Kiante Enis vs Union City

Enis and Winchester traveled to UC for a rivalry game though it wasn't much of a game. The Golden Falcons moved to 5-1 on the season by winning big, 49-6, behind Enis' big night on offense, which included 299 all purpose yards.

  • Final Stats: 23 carries for 239 yards and 2 TDS; 1 reception for 33 yards

ATH Chris Evans vs Lawrence North

Evans and Ben Davis were able to get back to .500 on the season with a big 35-14 win over Lawrence North, and the Michigan commit was a big reason why. The offensive weapon put up over 180 yards of total offense to help lead the Giants to victory.

Side Note: After his game on Friday night, he made his way to Ann Arbor for the BYU matchup.

  • Final Stats: 20 carries for 58 yards; 7 receptions for 123 yards

WR Ahmir Mitchell vs Holy Spirit

The Michigan receiver had his best game of his senior season on Saturday as he led Cedar Creek to a 26-0 win and a 3-0 start on the season. Mitchell had himself a very nice game, which included a long touchdown catch and run that had some comparing him to Reggie Bush.

  • Final Stats: 5 receptions for 81 yards and 1 TD

WR Brad Hawkins and DE Ron Johnson vs Cumberland

Hawkins' offensive outburst helped lead Johnson and Camden to a blowout win over the Colts, 41-6, and moved the Panthers to 2-1 on the season.

Speaking of Hawkins, he was the star of the game with 3 touchdowns in 3 different ways (rushing, receiving and a punt return)

Side Note: Johnson officially visited Kentucky on Saturday but it's nothing to worry about. He's all Michigan.

  • Hawkins' Final Stats: 6 carries for 34 yards and 1 TD; 1 reception for 33 yards and 1 TD; 40 yard punt return TD

TE Sean McKeon vs Shrewsbury

McKeon and Shepherd Hill lost a heartbreaker 21-20 and fell to 0-3 on the season. And with the Michigan commit only getting one catch, you can see why his team struggles and he has a lower rating.

  • Final Stats: 1 reception for 17 yards

OT Erik Swenson vs Cicero Morton

Swenson has been dominant at left tackle all season long for Downers Grove South and helped his Mustangs get a nice win, 24-14, over the opposing Mustangs and move to 2-3 on the season.

  • Final Stats: 13 pancakes

OT Devery Hamilton vs Loyola Blakefield

Hamilton had himself a busy weekend as he helped lead Gilman to another big win, 49-10, over the Dons on Friday night and then made his way to Ann Arbor for the Michigan-BYU game for a nice visit.

OL Ben Bredeson vs Catholic Memorial

Bredeson and Arrowhead have been on a roll all season long and continued it on Friday night when they shutout the Crusaders, 23-0, and remained undefeated at 6-0.

OG Michael Onwenu vs Detroit King

Cass Tech and Detroit MLK played, probably, the best regular season game of 2015 in the state of Michigan. Though Onwenu's Technicians were handed their first loss of the season as they fell in overtime, 31-28, the Wolverines commit had a nice game on both offense and defense:

DL Rashad Weaver vs Stoneman Douglas

Weaver played well at both defensive end and as a blocking tight end but it wasn't enough as his Cooper City Cowboys fell to 2-2 on the season after losing a tough game to the Eagles, 23-7.

LB David Reese vs North Farmington

Reese and Farmington lost a tough one to the Raiders, 26-21, to fall to 3-2 on the season. Though his team fell, Reese had another nice game, which included a nice forced fumble, as he remains the heart and soul of the Falcons' defense:

LB Dele Harding vs St. Joseph

There are plenty of questions surrounding Harding's commitment to Michigan as well as his team's 2015 season as ECA fell to 1-3 after losing 24-6 to the Green Knights.

CB Sir Patrick Scott vs Landon

Scott and Riverdale Baptist enjoyed a 28-7 non-conference win over the Landon Bears. Though his full stats were not released, his defense had themselves a nice day and helped move the Crusaders to 3-2.

S Devin Gil and S Josh Metellus vs Western

The Flanagan duo, as well as the rest of the secondary, put on a show Friday night as they beat the Western Wildcats 42-0 and moved to 3-1 on the season.

  • Gil's Final Stats: 10 tackles, 1 PBU
  • Metellus' Final Stats: 13 tackles
