Jacob Black, 6'5" 285, Miami Trace (OH) is another one of Ohio's offensive line prospects in 2006. Black is also from the same school at Miles Schlichter another one of Ohio's marquee prospects. With both Schlichter and Black Trace should be a force to reckon with this year. After spending some time with Black he told us about his summer.
"I have been to camps at Miami (OH) 6-5, Cincinnati 6-12, Clemson 6-19, and will be at West Virginia 6-21, Ohio State 6-24, Penn State 6-25, and Ohio 6-27."
"As of now I have no offers." And the lack of an offer does not discourage Black. "All the coaches pretty much say the same thing that they need to see me versus the top competition."
When asked to compare himself to the other offensive line prospects in Ohio. " We are all the same size, but they are used to better competition." "That's an advantage for them going into college." "They will be use to the tempo in college." "I feel that playing at a smaller school has hurt my recruiting."
Whatever school pulls the trigger on Black they must meet what he is looking for academically. "I want a school that has high academics." "I want to major in Education or Sprots Management."
So how does the big fella feel about Cincinnati? "I really like the coaches, Dantonio, Staten, and Hinton." "My dad and Coach Hinton were college buddies at Wilmington College." "I am also friends with David Andrews a Graduate Assistant who is from my area."
What were Black impressions at camp? "I really had a great time." " I really enjoyed being coached by Staten and Roushar." "I look forward to coming back to campus and getting to spend more time with the staff."
After reviewing his film, Black has quick feet and uses his hands well. I would say he plays Guard in college, the jump in competition will take some time to adjust, but that is why they have the redshirt year.
