Ten SW Ohio Sleepers Still On The Board
Each year several prospects who expected early recruiting interest remain on the board as we get ready to head into the final month of recruiting. We look at ten prospects from Southwest Ohio still on the board who could still receive late interest as National Signing Day approaches. WR: Jesse Bray – Huber Heights (OH) Wayne Bray is at the top of our list as he holds a couple of offers but must do some final touches on his academics to shore up the ability to accept those offers. If he can get things in order he'll give a team a very physical and athletic wide receiver capable of playing at a high level. This season the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Bray pulled down 42 balls for 726 yards and eight touchdowns. ATH: L.A. Ramsby – Cincinnati (OH) Colerain This past season Ramsby showed he was healthy after missing his junior year with a knee injury. While he played quarterback this season he projects as a running back or receiver and is athletic enough to also flip over to defense if needed. How is a player who passed for 1,649 yards and 16 touchdowns while also rushing for 1,510 yards and 18 touchdowns still on the board is a shock to many. RB: Israel Green – Trotwood (OH) Madison There was a reason the Rams have made three straight championship games and his name is Isreal Green. Because of his height (5-foot-8), the 200-pound Green has seen low interest. However, after posting 1,788 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns this season to go with his 1,758 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns a season ago, there should no question this mighty-mite can be a solid contributor on somebody's roster. TE/OL: Gerry Green – Dayton (OH) Thurgood Marshall If not for academics we may be talking about a high four-star prospect as Green has the physical size at 6-foot-6, 275-pounds to be one of the top offensive tackles in Ohio. While Green doesn't want to hear about a move to the offensive line, his future potential at the position is huge. OLB: Corey Timmons – Springfield (OH) Timmons first came on the scene as a running back and after a transfer to Springfield High saw his playing time move over to the defensive side of the ball. A high school safety, Timmons is still developing his defensive skill set and growing out of being a safety and into an outside linebacker. OLB: Corey Quallen – Mason (OH) Much like Timmons, Quallen is a player who may not get a lot of attention but is still a solid prospect with a solid upside. A high school safety, Quallen picked up a few offers but has been silent on any decision and may have seen those offers taken by others. At 6-foot-2, 205-pounds, Quallen is not afraid to hit and should see late looks as classes start to take shape. OLB/DE - Joshua McMillian – Dayton (OH) Stebbins McMillian started off fast this season only to see injury end his season early. At 6-foot-4, 210-pounds, McMillian should intrigue many as he's makes the transition from safety to linebacker. Some could even look at him as a future defensive end after bulking him up. DT: Dae'shawn Durham – Cincinnati (OH) Colerain Durham is also working on getting his grades solid and has schools showing high interest. If he can get things done he will have a chance to be a solid inside guy with his quickness and agility. Having played against some of the best high school competition in the country, Durham is tested and a proven performer. C/G: Cole Newsome – Huber Heights (OH) Wayne If Newsome was an inch or two taller he would be holding a dozen offers. Very sound in his technique, Newsome has been tested against solid competition throughout his high school career. Someone at some level is going to get a solid offensive lineman. OL/DT: Craig McCorkle – Cincinnati (OH) Winton Woods McCorkle is a big body with above average athletic ability that could make a solid offensive guard at the next level. Some reshaping of his body will be needed but the skill set is there to develop on either side of the line.
