Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Super Mario

Brand new UofM football coach Brady Hoke has attacked the local recruiting scene with reckless abandon since taking the job a few months back, specifically zeroing in on the vast talent pool in Oakland County. On Sunday night, Farmington Hills Harrison DE Mario Ojemudia, a 4-star recruit in the Class of 2012 who helped lead the Hawks to a state title last fall, committed to the Wolverines becoming the third highly-coveted player from the area to choose Hoke and the maze and blue in as many weeks.
Ojemudia (6-3, 235) is a pass rush specialist with a natural instinct and picture-perfect technique. As a junior last season he collected 12 QB sacks and 130 tackles while displaying his top-flight brand of speed and aggressiveness on the end of the Harrison defensive line. Along with elite WR recruit Aaron Burbridge and all-state TE Devin Funchess, Ojedmudia will headline a Hawks squad that will be nationally ranked come August and a runaway favorite to repeat as D2 state champs.

When watching game film of Harrison in 2010, SUPER MARIO practically jumps off the screen, that's how dynamic this kid is!!!! He joins Funchess and Orchard Lake St. Mary's James Ross (2-time all-state LB and the most highly sought after defensive recruit in the Michigan prep ranks) as recent committments to the Wolverine family.
Quick Memo to Coach D'antonio and his staff in the EL.....U GUYS ARE GETTING RUN in the in-state recruiting game....GET IT TOGETHER or risk becoming 'Little Brother' once again by 2013. U NEED BURBRIDGE to save your next recruiting class
