Ohio DT Names Favorites

Sian Cotton, a fine defensive tackle from Akron, Ohio talks about his scholarship offers and his favorites. Cotton camped at Michigan this summer.

Sian (SHE-ON) Cotton, a 6-foot-4, 305-pound, defensive tackle from Akron (Ohio) St. Vincent-St. Mary has a couple of scholarship offers now and he should gain more offers during the season.

"Ohio State and Pittsburgh have offered me a scholarship." Cotton said. "My favorites in no particular order are Ohio State, Miami (Fla.), Michigan, Clemson and Florida.

Cotton only played half a season in 2001 and he put up pretty solid numbers. 64 tackles, 14 sacks and nine tackles for loss.

Defensive tackles are at a premium and Cotton has the physical tools that the college coaches are looking for. If Sian produces in 2002 like he did as a junior, more offers should come his way.

This summer, Cotton camped at Miami (Fla.), Ohio State, Tennessee and Michigan.
