The state of Michigan was well represented on the national stage in last week’s Under Armour All-American and the U.S. Army All-American games. The three participants, Cass Tech’s Kalon Gervin, East English Village Prep’s Tyrone Sampson, and Dearborn Divine Child’s Aidan Hutchinson exhibited why they are regarded as some of the top prospects in the country. Let’s take a look at a quick synopsis of how they fared on the big stage.
Kalon Gervin, Cass Tech, DB
The future Michigan State Spartan got beat a few times, but overall, he thrived in practice and in the game. Gervin is an early enrollee at MSU and he has the potential to mirror the season that freshman All-American, Josiah Scott had for the Spartans.

Tyrone Sampson, EEVP, OL
The 4-Star offensive lineman showed why he is one of the coveted prospects in the country. Sampson possess a lethal combination of strength and quickness that most interior linemen don’t have. It’s tough to evaluate linemen in all-star games, but Sampson displayed he can hang with the best of them. Sampson has yet to decide where he is playing college ball, but wherever he lands he will make an immediate impact.

Aidan Hutchinson, Dearborn Divine Child, Defensive End
This may be a bold statement, but perhaps Hutchinson was the best defensive lineman in the U.S. Army All-American game. Although he is slated to play college football at the University of Michigan, he was very similar to former Ohio State Buckeye Joey Bosa during the game. With the addition of Hutchinson, the Wolverines add a top-flight player to an already solid unit.
