'Cats Offer Ohio Quarterback

One of Ohio's top prospects is Kent Roosevelt quarterback TraVon Chapman, and he landed his first BCS offer Thursday. Northwestern became the first BCS program to offer the signal caller, and there could be more headed his way.

Kent Roosevelt quarterback TraVon Chapman is one of Ohio's top 2013 prospects, and recruiting interest has certainly picked up. With an offer from Kent State already to his credit, Chapman added his first BCS offer Thursday.

"I was offered by Northwestern today," Chapman stated. "I'm very excited and feel very blessed to be given this opportunity from another school. Part of this recruiting process tests your patience, but it is well worth it. I'm happy to be in the position I'm in, and the offers tell me schools believe in my ability."

"I've seen guys get a lot of offers and slack off, thinking they have it made," he added. "I'm using this as motivation to get better, and hopefully add more offers. Northwestern is a great school and this is a huge offer for me."

Chapman, 6-foot-2, 205-pounds, had an impressive junior season in 2011, leading his team into the playoffs and putting up great numbers.
