Trotwood Duo will take in Practice

Trotwood-Madison High in Ohio has produced a plethora of high profile athletes over the recent years. Two years ago Jovani Chappel was one of the most talked about names in SW Ohio. This season players like C.J. Peake, Carson Byrd, and Tyson Patrick exploded on to the recruiting scene. The 2008 spotlight is already shining brightly on Brandon Moore and Dominick Britt.

There are always a few players in the "Miami Valley" that garner serious interest from the Buckeye coaching staff. Domonick Britt and Brandon Moore are two of the best in that area and the Ohio State has taken notice by offering them the chance to come out and watch as the team prepares for their match-up with Florida in the National Championship game.

Dominick Britt is a very versatile athlete in Trotwood-Madison's offensive spread attack. the 6-foot-5, 190-pound quarterback can burn you with his legs, or he can burn you with a deep ball over the top of the defenders.

Britt, who already holds an offer from Kent State, is also receiving interest from programs like Georgia Tech, Michigan, Texas and Cincinnati. Ohio State stopped by the school earlier this week and invited him out to watch the practice this weekend.

"I can't wait," Britt began. "I am excited to see how the team looks for the bowl game."

"Ohio State has been showing me some more interest lately. They have been sending a lot more letters and stuff like that. Coach (John) Peterson was at the school on Monday and invited me to come to the practice."

As a junior, Britt threw for 2,889 yards and 21 scores and added an additional 1,046 yards and nine scores on the ground.

Ohio is going to have a number of tight end prospects in the 2008 recruiting class that will garner some national attention. Brandon Moore has already picked up offers from Georgia, Nebraska, Stanford and Mississippi.

At 6-foot-6, 220-pounds, Brandon Moore will be one of the most athletic prospects in the country at the tight end position. He uses a big frame and solid body control to haul in passes and make plays.

There were some rumors circulating last night that he had recently given a commitment to the Georgia Bulldogs. For the time being Moore put those stories to rest and discussed his excitement for the weekend trip.

"No," Moore informed when asked if the rumors about a Georgia commitment were true. Although he admits Georgia may be the favorite, he is looking forward to being in Columbus again.

"I am fired up about it. Ohio State has been showing me a lot of interest lately. They have been text messaging me every now and then and keeping in contact with me. Coach Peterson was in the school and invited me and Domonick out to the practice."

"I have already been to two games at Ohio State. I went to the Bowling Green game and the Michigan game. The Michigan game was unbelievable. It was really an amazing game. I do not think I sat down one time."

"Michigan is a school that has began to show me a lot of interest as well. Coach (Mike) DeBord was in school and told me that they do not offer many guys before signing day, but I should expect one sometime around signing day."

Moore had 19 receptions for 286 yards and one touchdown as a junior in 2006.
