Michigan City is known to produce talented prospects over the years. Recent success on the gridiron has led college coaches to the hallways of the Wolves. New Head Coach Cody French will continue the success on the field and the recruitment for his players. Indiana Preps dives into some of the top prospects on the roster heading into the 2023 season.
Jaden Hart is one of the Midwest’s top running backs in the 2024 class. The Four-Star is an elusive runner, with tremendous balance and a quick burst that gets him to the second level in a hurry. He battled injuries during the 2022 season, limiting his ability to attract more offers. However, the 5’10 180-pound back holds offers from Kentucky, Iowa State, Purdue, Minnesota, Nebraska, Syracuse and more. Look for a healthy Hart in 2023 to explode on the scene and make a case for Indiana Preps Player of the Year.
Indiana Preps has had the privilege to witness the maturation of Da’mon Thomas over the years. Thomas has attended our camp series since his middle school days, and has always been on our radar. Thomas recently attended our Indiana Winter Showcase this past January and it’s clear he’s out to prove that he’s one of the top defensive backs in the state regardless of class. We agree! Thomas went head-to-head against 3-star and 4-star prospects several times and fared really well. Thomas is still growing and his skills continue to improve each time we see him in person. Miami (OH) University is first to extend an offer to the 2026 prospect. The first of many to come.
Kyron Hart is just a 2027 and has yet to step on a varsity field, however, there is much buzz about this young man’s abilities. He flashes playmaking traits like his older brother Jaden, but from the wide receiver position. He can also lock up receivers from the defensive back position. At 6’1 160-pounds, Hart has a frame to add good weight and be an explosive all-around player for the Wolves.
Dion Smith is an under the radar offensive lineman prospect in a loaded 2024 class for the position. He anchors the line at right tackle for the Wolves, opening up lanes for Hart and others. Some college coaches are taking notice of the 6’4 260-pound prospect. UConn was first to offer Smith last year. A recent visit to Duke has more college coaches inquiring. Smith is a good looking player, that is all upside. With more development, he will be a steal for any team at the next level.
Adrian Holley is an intriguing 2025 prospect with a nice lean frame at the Rush position for the Wolves. On film, he flashes his pass rushing skills and being a disruptor at the line of scrimmage. Once he develops a few tools, plays with better leverage and uses his speed and hands, Holley will be a coveted player at 6’5.
Senior quarterback Tyler Bush will have a plethora weapons at his disposal. Bush is a 6’1 200-pound under the radar prospect in his own right with over 2,000 plus total yards. The collective group of talent is starting to heat up on the recruiting trail. Olijah Collins is a 2024 wideout that recently made an unofficial visit to Tennessee. Cameron Bell is a shifty slot receiver, also in the 2024 class that will turn heads with his speed. 2026 receiver D’Andre Collier and with Kyron Hart in the mix, look for the Wolves to spread defenses out and make way for 2024 running back Derrick Coleman in addition to 4-star running back Jaden Hart.
Another Hart is waiting for his time to shine for the Wolves. Cousin Trinaston Hart is slated to compete for the quarterback position next fall. Another athletic specimen for Coach French’s team.
