Now we know how Wayne State landed Battle Creek Central cornerback Myles McNichols at the 11th hour:

Feb. 16, Battle Creek Enquirer: “Grand Valley offered and you can’t beat their success with the national championships, but the fact was, besides football, there wasn’t anything else there for me in Allendale,” McNichols said. “I basically feel more comfortable at Wayne State.”

Getting a 6-foot-1 corner with good speed and Division I interest (Bowling Green) is a positive at any point in the recruiting process. For McNichols to pick Wayne State this late is an impressive sign of confidence in Paul Winters and WSU’s direction and bolsters an already strong class.

Paul Winters noted that Wayne State was able to recruit successfuly from a number of powerhouse high school football programs, including Cincinnati Colerain.

Judging from the Cardinals’ signings this year, that powerhouse status becomes evident. In addition to Jordan Miller, Colerain sports a long list of impressive football signings this year.

Eugene Clifford, a Parade All-American , signed with Ohio State as a saftey. Running back Gary Pride is headed to Akron. Jarad Foglesong (Georgetown) and Brandon Lainhart (Cornell) signed NLI’s as well.

Adding to an already impressive cast of wide recievers that were redshirted last year, Wayne State signed four more in the class of ’07.

We’ve talked a bit about Port Huron’s Troy Burrell. He joins 6-1 David Mosley (Oak Park), 6-2 Don Brown (Southfield), and 6-3 Dante Davis (Chippewa Valley).

Here are some complete player profiles with videos ($): Don Brown and David Mosley. Here’s a profile from Chippewa Valley’s team site of Dante Davis.

With all three tight ends – John Rehberg, Kenny Schmidt and Dale Knuth – set for graduation, Wayne State needed a big TE haul in its class of 2007.

The Warriors picked up a pair of good ones in Greg Oberstaedt (6-4, 235) and Cory Zauner (6-4, 240).

Oberstaedt was named one of ESPN’s 19 best MI tight ends and drew interest from Purdue, Central Michigan and several other D-IIs. The Whitmore Lake native was a team captain and earned most valuable lineman honors, along with honorable mention All-Tri-County (TE) and All-Area (DL) honors.

Tyler Amos, a 5-8 Wayne State signee from Middletown, Ohio, is the cousin of Ohio State cornerback Andre Amos.

Tyler Amos camped at Ohio State, Bowling Green and Akron last summer and had interest from MAC schools and, reportedly, had a Cincinnati offer. He also reported being timed at 4.32 in the 40.

Rivals.com lists Amos as a saftey but he committed to WSU as a cornerback.

6-5, 270 pound lineman Joe Long, who coach Paul Winters called on of the best in the state, could be Wayne State’s version of Jake Long. One of the most highly-touted recruits in WSU’s class of 2007 had an article penned in the LA(peer) View.

Feb. 8, LAView: A Second Team All-Flint Metro and All-State honoree this past football season and Honorable Mention in the Metro last season, Long had a blocking efficiency percentage of 94% and never surrendered a sack this season.

“I just loved everything about the campus, the coaches and the players when I visited,” Long explained. “I’m very excited to get it all started.”

Local article on area Wayne State signings from rival high schools – Port Huron High’s Troy Burrell and Port Huron Northern’s Cory Zauner.

Feb. 8, Port Huron Times-Hearld: “The program is on the rise, and it seemed like a good fit,” said Burrell, a wide receiver. “They’ve always won more game than the previous years since coach (Paul Winters) has gotten there. They’re going to be coming up in the league.”
