Several players from Indiana kicked off the 2013 camp and combine season by heading to Illnois to compete in the Core 6 Athletes Winter Showcase on January 21, 2013. Mishawaka Marian 2014 OL Kirk Barron took home Offensive Line MVP honors. The 6’3 298 junior is being recruited by Kansas, TCU, Toledo and Ohio University pretty heavy. He is also hearing from Minnesota, Michigan State, Purdue, Georgia Tech and others. Ohio State target Westside (Gary,IN) junior Wide Receiver Lonnie Johnson proved that he was one of the top receivers in his class, but it was teammate JovVea Johnson who took home Wide Receiver MVP on Monday. JohnVea is hearing from Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Bowling Green. Johnson has scheduled visits to Indiana, Illinois and says he hopes to land an offer soon. Core 6 Athletes CEO Paul Szczesny was very impressed by both Lonnie and JonVea’s ability. “Those two are legit, gamebreakers!” says Szczesny. Westside sophomore QB Ramone Atkins was also very impressive and took home runner-up in the Quarterback MVP Honors. Elkhart Central junior receiver Blake Faus also made a name for himself at the showcase and expects his recruiting to pick up.
