Comments - In my eyes, Brian Hoyer from Cleveland (St. Ignatius) is the best quarterback prospect in Ohio and the Midwest for that matter.

However, Dayton (Chaminade-Julienne) signal caller Anthony Turner looked very good on film and at the (Ann Arbor) Nike Camp. Several schools have already offered Turner a scholarship.

"Iowa, Nebraska, Michigan State, Indiana, Cincinnati, Bowling Green, Miami (Ohio) and Ball State have all offered me a scholarship," said Turner.

"Penn State is my leader right now. I also like Notre Dame, Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State.

"The only schools that have called so far in May are Bowling Green and Cincinnati.

"I'm going to a lot of camps this summer. I'll be at Notre Dame, Michigan State, Iowa, Kentucky, Penn State and Miami (Ohio)."

Turner threw for 2,100 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior. He'll be a three-year varsity starter in 2003. He led his team to a 14-1 record and state championship a year ago.
