Ohio Offensive Climbers

With the Ohio season now finished and a rankings update in the works, here are a few offensive prospects that should see their stock climb.

The 2013 high school season in Ohio is in the books. Now, we look at several key offensive prospects that should see their ranking climb in our next update.

QB: Gus Ragland – Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller – Ragland has had a dream season as a first year starter leading Moeller to a state championship in the process. It didn't take long for college coaches to take notice as Miami Ohio new head coach Chuck Martin was quick to extend the Moeller standout a scholarship offer.

WR: Isaiah Gentry – Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller – Much like Ragland, Gentry didn't hit the field fulltime until this fall. By mid-season, Gentry started showing signs of being a major prospect. In the state championship game, Gentry pulled down seven receptions for 182 yards and two scores. Don't be surprised if the Kent State pledge makes a huge climb in the rankings as he's had that big of a senior year.

WR: Conner Krizancic – Mentor (Ohio) – This fall found the Cincinnati pledge playing quarterback and he did a great job of leading Mentor to a state championship finals appearance. One of the best overall athletes we've seen this season, Krizancic has a huge upside as a playmaker at the college level.

ATH: Kelvin Cook – Cincinnati (Ohio) Colerain – If we had an athlete category Cook would be at the top of the list. This fall the Colerain senior played quarterback and helped his team go 12-1 losing in the playoffs to Moeller. On the season, Cook passed for 922 yards and 13 scores but rushed for 1,722 yards and 18 touchdowns.

RB: Bayle Wolf – Clarksville (Ohio) Clinton-Massie – Feed the Wolf was the chant used throughout the playoffs as Massie won a second consecutive state championship with Wolf carrying the load. Listed as a linebacker, Wolf's ability to carry the ball makes his a prospect with multiple talents. Michigan has taken notice looking to get Wolf to take a walk-on spot. However, we feel he's a player who should be a scholarship player.

ATH: Tyrell Gilbert – Cincinnati (Ohio) Princeton – Committed to Cincinnati as a safety, it will be hard for the Bearcats coaching staff to keep this offensive weapon on the defensive side of the ball. Gilbert passed for 1,807 yards and 15 touchdowns while also rushing for 1,200 yards and 20 scores.

WR: Tristan Davis – Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne – Davis saved his best for his final season with 1,267 yards receiving and 17 touchdowns as Wayne won a conference title and advanced to the third round of the playoffs. Someone is going to get a steal as Davis runs great routes and shows great hands.

OG: Martesse Patterson – Columbus (Ohio) Marion-Franklin – Patterson had a solid summer and a great fall as he helped Marion-Franklin reach the third round of the playoffs. The new Purdue pledge has the makings of being a big-time Big Ten offensive lineman and should help early in his career.
