Small Comes Up Big At Receiver

Cleveland Glenville wide receiver/defensive back Ray Small was among the most impressive prospects at Saturday's edition of OSU's Senior Advanced Camp. Click here for a look at where Small worked at the OSU camp as well as his thoughts on the recent bus tour he and other Glenville recruits participated in.

We caught up with Cleveland Glenville wide receiver/defensive back Ray Small following Saturday's session of the Senior Advanced Camp at Ohio State.

The 6-0, 170-pound Small, ranked as Ohio's sixth-best senior-to-be by Ohio High magazine, turned in a 4.4-second 40-yard time on the notoriously slow track inside the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

Some like Small as a defensive back. However, he worked at the camp as a receiver and did not disappoint. He was arguably the most impressive receiver at Saturday's camp, showing disciplined route running, great hands and breakaway speed.

"It was great competing," Small said. "I'm used to competing every day against my teammates. I'm pretty much used to that."

Small, of course, was part of Glenville coach Ted Ginn Sr.'s traveling troupe of prospects who saw 10 schools for football camp in an 11-day period.

"At first, it was exciting," Small said. "But then I kind of got fatigued after about the fourth camp. But overall it was fun.

"Probably one of the best places I saw was Iowa. I liked it there. Bowling Green and Wisconsin were also very nice."

When asked for his current top five, Small said, "Ohio State, USC, Wisconsin, Iowa and North Carolina."

And, as he has said since he was offered by OSU on signing day in February, he is in no hurry to make a decision and will likely visit a number of those schools before deciding. He will likely attend camp at North Carolina in mid-July.

As a junior, Small had 533 yards receiving and 300 yards rushing. He scored 10 touchdowns. On the defensive side of the ball, Raymond racked up 50 tackles and four interceptions.
