OL to watch - Gerald Cadogan

Gerald Cadogan is a name to remember as he is one of Ohio's top offensive linemen this year. He is starting to get more and more attention.

Some guys are just born to be huge. Portsmouth's mammoth offensive lineman Gerald Cadogan is one of those players.

"I've been playing football since 1st grade, but they thought I was in third grade," he said.
Right now, Cadogan stands in at 6-7, 290 pounds. He has a 5.1 40 and is starting to get more and more attention, particularly from two Big Ten schools.

"Penn State has been recruiting me the most and the longest, but Ohio State's becoming more frequent," he said.

Gerald went up to junior day at OSU, and it was the first time he had been there. "It was very impressive," he said.

Gerald also is planning on going up to Eastern Michigan, and this summer, he is going to camp at OSU and PSU.

Right now, Gerald is an OL all the way, but he'd like to do more if possible.

"I've not played defense since middle school, but I would love to play more defense," he said.
He's doing well in the weight room as just yesterday, he put up a 350 bench. He also has a 350 squat ("I'd like to work on that," he said).

On top of it all, Gerald is an outstanding student. He carries a 3.8 GPA and ranks 4th right now in a class of 141 students. He wants to take the test soon. "I am thinking I will take the test in April. I want to get it out of the way," he said.

Gerald Cadogan is one to keep an eye on this year and is one big reason why this group of Ohio offensive linemen is looking so good. Before it is all said and done, Cadogan could be the best of the bunch.
