Recruiting Update - Ted Ginn, Jr.

So far this season, Cleveland Glenville star Ted Ginn, Jr. has done nothing to make anyone think he is not the top senior prospect in the state. We caught up with him and his father and head coach Ted Ginn, Sr. for a recruiting and season update.

Ted Ginn Jr. has done nothing this season but re-establish himself as the top senior prospect in the state of Ohio.  He's off to a great start as he has six offensive TDs and one INT for a TD (43 yards) so far.  He has played QB and DB and had 157 yards rushing in a game vs. Massillon Perry, including a 56-yard run that his father and head coach Ted Ginn, Sr. said was better than a run he made last year that many people said was the run of the year. 

"We're running a lot out of the shotgun this year but we're running the ball a lot out of the shotgun," said Coach Ginn.

"We did it some last year, but we're doing more this year," said Ted Jr.  "I like it because I can see the field better."

Many observers have come away super impressed with Ted Ginn, Jr. this year, and his father agrees with the accolades.

"I know some people are going to have a hard time believing this, but he's so much a better player this year than last year," said Coach Ginn.

Ted Jr. would actually rather play WR for Glenville.

"Playing quarterback's cool, but I would rather play wide receiver," he said.

As for a position in college, Ted Jr. doesn't have a preference, but he might not need one.

"Everyone says I can play both ways," he said.

Glenville is off to a 2-1 start, and the Ginns are too focused on the season right now to think much about recruiting.

"Ted is not set on his visits or who he's going to visit," said Coach Ginn.  "We don't even know when we are going to take our visits.

"Ted is not really thinking about all this yet.  He's just concentrating on the football season.  All the rest of this is something he is not ready to deal with right now. We'll look into it after the season."
