Ryan Marando from Lakewood St. Edward is a player who is getting some serious D-IA looks. The 6-3, 222 pounder ran a 4.7 40 and has been camping all over Big Ten country.
"I was down at Ohio State last year but didn't go this year."
Marando can play either DE or LB. Nobody has said whether they want him as DE but most seem to be talking about him as a LB.
"I keep hearing this about me being a TE but I have never played there," he said. "I will this year though."
Right now, Marando and St. Ed's have been working on speed work and max work. He also plays basketball and plans to play next year as well, and plays baseball. He wants to major in sports management or business, and he has offers so far from Indiana, Miami (OH), and Akron.
"I think I am going to wait to make a decision unless I get the offer I want," he said.
