Weems, who is committed to DePaul, is currently a senior at New Haven High School, the No. 3 ranked team in Division 2 (No. 11 overall) according to MLive.
On Wednesday, the nominations for the 2019 McDonald’s All-American Game were released and Weems, along with three other seniors boys from Michigan made the list.
