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.
