One of the best 2018 prospects in the Midwest continues to pick up offers coming out of the April evaluation period. Point guard Dwayne Cohill is now adding interest and offers, with a big offer coming over the weekend from Ohio State.
“It has been a great spring,” said Cohill. “It is going better than I planned. Changing from a wing to a point guard I thought it might be a little shaky, and it has been up and down at some points, but things are clicking into place.”
With that transition to point guard going well, Cohill has seen an uptick in his recruitment.
“Recently Florida, Texas, Florida State, Stanford, Michigan has been calling a lot as well,” noted Cohill. “Also I am still hearing from Notre Dame, Penn State, Ohio State, Xavier, Cincinnati, Virginia, and West Virginia.”
The most recent offer from Cohill came from the in-state Buckeyes. For Cohill it was big to get an offer from Ohio State.
“Being a hometown kid, basically every kid grows up wanting to be a Buckeye,” said Cohill of the offer. “Being able to have that chance means a lot to me. It is like LeBron going to the Cavs he was happy to represent his hometown and his home state.”
Ohio State offered while Cohill was on an unofficial visit, and he said he enjoyed the campus quite a bit.
“I thought it was really nice,” said Cohill of Ohio State. “The campus is beautiful and really clean. Everything was clean, everything looked brand new, the coaches were nice, and walking around I saw where I could potentially be with the business school.”
Michigan doesn’t offer 2018 kids until June 15, and the potential is there for Cohill to be in the mix for an offer at that point. He says the Wolverines have really picked up the interest recently.
“I recently talked to new assistant coach Saddi Washington, and we are building a relationship,” explained Cohill. “I talked to Coach (John) Beilein before when I went on my visit and he is a good guy. They say they’d love to have me and we need to keep building a good relationship.”
For now Cohill is in no hurry to make any kind of decision, and would like to make more visits in the fall to get to see all of the schools on his list, and know more about each program.
