Showcase featuring U-M targets

The new year means that recruiting camps and combines will start to ramp up. Core 6 Athletes in Deerfield, Ill., is holding its second annual Winter Invitational Showcase at 1 p.m. Monday. The event breaks up some of the top talent in the area into teams and puts them through competitive drills to show their ability.

"The Core 6 Athletes Showcase is truly a one-of-a kind-event," Core 6 Athletes president Paul Szcezny said. "It is a unique and special opportunity for the players because they get to compete against their peers in a fun environment."

Some of the prospects who will be in attendance include running back Ty Isaac (Joliet, Ill./Joliet Catholic), offensive linemen Ethan Pocic (Lemont, Ill./Lemont), Logan Tuley-Tillman (Peoria, Ill./Manual), and Colin McGovern (New Lenox, Ill./Lincoln-Way West), and wide receiver Laquon Treadwell (Crete, Ill./Crete Monee).

All of them are players whom Michigan is targeting, which is a great opportunity for some of those prospects to compare abilities.

Szczesny says he is also excited to see some of the underclassmen at the event including 2014 linebackers Clifton Garrett (Plainfield, Ill./Plainfield) and Nyles Morgan (Crete, Ill./Crete Monee).
