3. TOP CENTRAL MICHIGAN PLAYERS
Best Central Michigan Offensive Player
WR Kalil Pimpleton, Soph.
Call this a bit of a projection for a team that desperately needs new offensive stars to step up. Houston transfer QB Quinten Dormady has to be the best player, and a running back has to emerge, but Pimpleton should be the star playmaker with the elite quickness and skills to stand out as a No. 1 receiver. The Virginia Tech transfer sat out last year, he’s ready to explode.

Best Central Michigan Defensive Player
S Devonni Reed, Soph.
The stars in the secondary are gone, and while Reed isn’t going to make the impact that Sean Bunting and Xavier Crawford did, he’s the new main man. The 6-0, 188-pound sophomore finished second on the team with 97 tackles and broke up three passes. Now he’s going to have to be the star veteran for a D in transition.
