With the first release of the Scout 300 for the 2015 recruiting class, we take a quick look at Ohio athlete Chris Fobbs.

We look at Ohio's No. 13 prospect Chris Fobbs from Miamisburg (Ohio) High School in this introduction.

Fobbs on Ranking

"I'm very surprised on being ranked," said Fobbs. "I missed the first five games last season and I'm working hard to have a big year. This means a lot and I know I've got to keep working."

As for areas of improvement, Fobbs was quick to talk about his game.

"I need to keep working on my flexibility and on my hips," he said. "We just finished two-a-days and are about to scrimmage Lakota East on Saturday."

Schools of Interest

Currently Fobbs holds an offer from Toledo after a stellar camp performance at the Rockets satilite camp in Dayton (Ohio) this past summer. He also showed well at a camp in July at Arkansas and is in line to earn an offer from the Razorbacks after they get a look at his transcripts later this fall.

Fobbs is also hearing from Michigan State and Bowling Green and is planning visit to all four schools for games this season.


Despite missing half a season as a sophomore, Chris Fobbs has shown he's got the physical abilities to play at a higher level with above average athletic ability that combines speed and explosiveness on both sides of the ball.

Currently Fobbs will be used as a cornerback or safety along as a player capable of catching or running the ball on offense. His future looks like it could follow his older brothers who was a high school safety then grew into a linebacker in college.

Long armed and with a smoothness when he runs, Fobbs will have a chance to be one of Ohio's if not the Midwest top overall prospects if he keeps developing his overall game on and off the field.
