Laster Still Hearing From Top Schools

Shaker Heights wide receiver De'Niro Laster impressed as a junior last season, and is one of Ohio's best for the class of 2013. Laster is a big, fast athlete, and could project at several positions for the next level. Scout has the latest on Laster.

Shaker Heights (OH) wide receiver De'Niro Laster fits the bill for a big, fast athlete, and college recruiters have certainly taken notice.

Laster, 6-foot-2, 200-pounds, already has attracted a handful of offers, and he could project at a number of positions, on both sides of the football.

"Things are going good for me, and I'm anxious to get out to different camps and combines, to show my stuff," Laster stated. "I'm in good shape, and I'm healed from last season's shoulder injury. I missed the last game of the season, but I'm good to go now."

"My recruiting is all good now, but a lot of the schools I've been talking to have had some coaching changes, like Tennessee, Wisconsin and Ohio State," he added. "I have spoken to Louisville lately, and they are coming in to my school this week. I've also talked to Pittsburgh, and they are very interested in me."

Even with assistant coach Taver Johnson leaving Ohio State, the Buckeyes are still in contact with Laster.

"They are still in touch with me, even though I did not know Taver had left," he explained. "They want me to come down in February and check things out, and I'm planning on doing that. I haven't set a date yet, but my dad and I are talking about getting that done."

As a junior in 2011, Laster played well on both sides of the football, at wide receiver and tight end on offense, and at linebacker on defense.
