When looking at the 2019 class in Ohio, it's easy to see the defensive end position is one of great strength with four currently holding offers.
Mentor's Noah Potter stood out last year as a sophomore starter for one of the state's top programs. Standing 6-foot-6, 240-pounds, Potter passes the eye test with ease.
"I have two offers right now, from Bowling Green and Toledo, and there are a lot of schools starting to show interest," Potter stated. "I'm hearing from schools like Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan, and I've visited both of them."
Potter discussed all three Midwest powers, and how things are progressing with each school.
"I've been to Ohio State a lot so far, with my brother playing basketball there," he added. "They want me to come to camp, and I'm going to do that in June. They're talking about offering, but nothing has happened yet."
"I'm talking to (defensive line coach) Larry Johnson, and the last time I was there we had a really good meeting," he continued. "I'm being recruited by Coach (Mike) Zordich at Michigan, and he's a really good guy."
"I thought Penn State was going to offer at their junior day, but they said they need to see more film on me," Potter said. "I'm being recruited by both Terry Smith and Sean Spencer, and I like both of them a lot."
After seeing Potter play the first game of his sophomore season, and then seeing him again at the Cleveland Opening Regional two weeks ago, it's apparent he's been working hard on his game.
He has great length, and a quick first step off the ball. As he gains strength, he is going to be a force on the defensive line.
