DETROIT KING: Ranked No. 5 in Mick McCabe’s preseason rankings, the Crusaders have won four of the past seven against Cass Tech, including last season’s 47-7 victory. The blowout was an outlier in an otherwise back-and-forth series. King has a slew of young talent, but defensive backs Jaylen Reed (Penn State) and Rishad Hence (Akron) form one of the better DB tandems in the state.
