Two of the top prospects in the 2012 class in Ohio suffered injuries in Friday night action, as both Warren Ball (Columbus DeSales) and Collin Michael (Lexington) left their respective games.

Michael, 6-foot-5, 215-pounds, was injured in the first quarter of Lexington's 10-7 victory over North Canton, after suffering a knee injury.

Michael was off to a hot start, completing several passes, before suffering his injury. Lexington head coach B.J. Payne said Michael will seek medical attention tomorrow, to determine the seriousness of the injury.

Ball, an early Ohio State commit, was injured in DeSales' game against New Albany in the second quarter.

Ball's father, Warren Sr., indicated his son will have an x-ray tomorrow morning on his injured ankle to determine the extent of the injury.
