Recruiting: Ohio RB focusing on grades

Shaker Height's, Ohio running back is off to a good start, but do the Sooners still lead?


"We are 7-2 on the season and we have won six straight games. They take the top eight teams in each division to qualify for the playoffs and we are in division one. Everything is based on a computer and right now we are ranked number eighth. We have one more regular season game to go and we play our arch-rival this weekend in Cleveland Heights."

"My season is going pretty good. I have 25 touchdowns and 1,658 yards rushing. I am averaging above nine yards per carry. I am not catching the ball as much as I did my junior year. It's fine with me how we are doing things. I believe I am maturing as a running back. I am more powerful this year, yet I can still make people miss."

"I am just focusing on my grades and the future. I plan on taking visits after the football season is over. I am still a soft commitment to Oklahoma and they and West Virginia are my top two schools. I know I will take visits to both of those schools."

"I have been able to look at Oklahoma's highlights, but that is about it because we are usually playing at the same time."

"I like Oklahoma and everything, but the recruiter at West Virginia does a pretty good job. So I am going to take a look. I am going to visit West Virginia sometime around the first of December."

"Outside of my dad, my favorite running back is Marshall Faulk, especially his rookie year."
