LPI: What are you going to do to take your game to the next level this offseason? Are you playing 7on7 or are you playing any other sports?
JM: To take my game to the next level I am running track, and constantly in the weight room. Also when I am not at the school training I train at 6am at High Performance Fitness in Matteson. I am currently on the track team, and I run the 4×200, and 4×100 meter relay, along with the open 100.
LPI: You currently have three offers from Central Michigan, Northern Iowa and Illinois State. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?
JM: The skill set that I can bring to the table for a college football program is my leadership not only through my words but through my actions. Also my constant positivity that I bring to the team trying to make everybody better.
LPI: Besides Central Michigan, North Iowa and Illinois State, which schools have shown serious interest in you?
JM: Dartmouth University, Princeton University, Lehigh University, Columbia University, Ball State University, Northern Illinois University and Wyoming University.
LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits or camps/showcases set?
JM: I haven’t been on any visits recently but I plan on going to Ball State University, Northern Illinois University and Central Michigan. I will be attending the Lemming Showcase and I currently attended The Regional Nike Opening Combine.
LPI: On or off the field, how do you demonstrate leadership or go the extra mile for your teammates?
JM: On the field I’m always trying to push my teammates and keep pushing myself so neither of us will slack. Off the field I am always opening my house to what ever teammate needs it, also I have team outings often to bring the team together.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
Demetrius Roebuck – Hard Worker, is a good athlete at safety so he can cover a lot of ground.
Khaliq Hammond – A real quick player with tremendous field vision, with soft hands at the slot position.
Derrick Maxwell – Works hard and really wants to be great, is also a good athlete who can cover a lot of ground at safety.
Sean Tyler – Was a young running back this year but the other team couldn’t tell because of speed quickness and power.
Leo Brown – Is big as a refrigerator who goes both ways and can really move for his size.
Mehki Miller – He is a very long cornerback and can come down and tackle.
