OhioPrepScene is always here to profile and promote players who may be getting missed during the recruiting process. One player who is getting interest but not as many DI looks as he should updates us on his recruiting and season.

One player who has made our list of under the radar recruits during the summer is seeing his stock rise early. Jared Ison a tall lanky DB from Olentangy High School has received many calls during the month of September. Jared shows many skills on film and will grow into a very good safety at the next level.

The Naval Academy, Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, Yale, Northwestern and Ohio University called during the first week. In week two Yale and Brown called. I visited Duke on September 6th and watched them play Western Carolina. I had a great time and enjoyed the experience. This past weekend I visited Ohio University and watched them play Minnesota.

As for the season our team is doing very well. We are 3-1 with our loss to Big Walnut last week. As for my stats I'm doing pretty well, I have around 20 tackles and 3 interceptions along with 3 pbu's. Our defense has posted two shutouts so far this season. I don't play much on offense and only have 1 catch for 14 yards.

We would like to thank Jared for helping us stay updated on how the 2003 season and recruiting is going for him.


Player who has sliped under the radar.  Tall with long frame.  Will need to add some bulk (only 17) at this time.  Getting looks from Colorado, Miami Ohio, Iowa, Purdue, Indiana and many other.  Great student!! Could go Ivy league.

HIGH SCHOOL: Olentangy



40 TIME: 4.6


GPA: 3.81

SAT: 1130

ACT: 27

OPS NOTES: We have seen tape on Jared and came away feeling he is very skilled and can play Safety at the DI level.  Lack of camps early has keep Jared from reaching the interest he deserves. This summer he tried to make up for that and showed very well at many DI camps.  He has a nose for the ball and makes sure tackles and the skills to make many interceptions.  He also matches up with todays taller receivers.  His stock is only going to rise with his play during the 2003 season.
