Big Week For Ohio Junior

Following on the heels of a spectacular performance last week, Grafton (OH) Midview junior quarterback Cody Callaway has picked up his first offer. Toledo is the first to show their intent, but several top programs have noticed Callaway's talents.

Grafton (OH) Midview junior quarterback Cody Callaway has been on fire this year, and is one of the top signal callers in the 2014 class in Ohio. A week ago he gained statewide attention by throwing for over 400 yards in an upset win over Elyria.

Callaway, 6-foot-2, 185-pounds, is also a top baseball prospect and has collected 13 offers for his work on the diamond. This week he picked up his first football offer.

"Toledo offered this week and I'm very excited about that," Callaway stated. "They have a great program, with a super coaching staff, and I loved it up there when I visited last summer. I'm definitely going back for a game in the next few weeks."

Several other college programs are recruiting the junior gun-slinger, and he has received invitations to games from many. Callaway visited Ohio State last Saturday for the game with California.

"I loved it down at Ohio State, and they're definitely one of my favorite schools," he explained. "I was there with my parents, and we all had a great time. I was able to speak with Coach (Tom) Herman and Coach (Stan) Drayton, and they want the first four game tapes this week. I did well in front of Coach Herman at camp last summer, and he said they are very interested. I saw the Ohio State baseball coach at the football game, and he was kidding with me that he thought I was there for baseball. I know Coach Herman has talked with the baseball coaches about me playing both sports at Ohio State, should they offer me for football. They are supposed to stop by my school in the next few weeks."

"I visited West Virginia earlier and loved it there, and I have visits coming to Michigan and Bowling Green, for sure," he added. "I've also been invited to games at Tennessee and Cincinnati, but I'm not certain I can make those this year. I definitely want to get back to Michigan, especially since I did so well there at camp last summer."

"The Michigan coaches pulled me aside at camp and put me into their top group, where they said I did well," Callaway said. "They said they really want me to get up there for a game, and I will be there this year for sure, but I don't have a date set yet. I'm very interested in Michigan, and look forward to getting back up there for a game."

Callaway is off to a great start to his junior year and is putting up huge numbers. Through four games, he has thrown for nearly 1,200 yards. He has thrown 12 touchdown passes, and run for three more.
