OPS TOP FOOTBALL PROSPECTS #11-20

We named the Top 10 last week. Now we see who follows them into the Top Propsects from number 11-20.

We keep looking at the Top players from Ohio in this year's football recruiting class. We have named 1 - 10 and now take a look at the OPS list from 11 - 20.

11. Jim Cordle - OL - Lancaster High School

Jim saw his stock rise and OSU there with an offer. He took it and that will not allow us to see how many other schools felt so highly about him. With the numbers college coaches' look for Jim still has some room to define his body during the next two years. Commitment: The Ohio State University

12. Brian Hartline - WR - Canton GlenOak High School

Brian is a very good athlete. He is going to make a great possession receiver at the next level. What makes Brian great is his hands. He will catch everything in site no matter how hard of a catch. Brian runs great routes and can get separation from defensive backs. Commitment: Open

13. Austin Spitler - LB - Bellbrook High School

Austin saw his stock rise during the past few months at MSL and around the college recruiting circles. Look at his tape and you will see why a school like Wisconsin has already made an offer. With size and strength Austin has all the tools for the next level. It doesn't hurt that Austin raised the bar 31 times at 185 lbs. during the MSL Combine at UC in late May. Commitment: Open

14. Joe Kleinsmith - P/K - Lakewood St. Edwards High School

You may be asking why I have a kicker in the Top 20. It's easy, he's that good and he's not just a kicker. Kleinsmith will see much action at defensive back and receiver this coming season, but his kicking is what makes him a very special player. Great leg and should get a great look at playing during his true freshman year. Commitment: Indiana University

15. Brian Robiskie - WR - Chargin Falls High School

If not for Greg Orton, Mario Manningham and Brian Hartline Robiskie would be the #1 receiver in Ohio. While he's not in the Top 10, he's not far behind. This kid knows football and has the skills to play at the next level with any program in the country. Sitting on several offers from Big 10 schools and should see even more schools make offers before the summer is over. Commitment: Open

16. David Bruton - S - Miamisburg High School

David is starting to gather speed during the recruiting process. With several offers in hand look for more to come as camps come to a close. While not as well known as some of the other DB prospects, David has the size and speed to play at the next level at a high level. If you think David is impressive wait until you see his younger brother during the next few years. Commitment: Open

17. Richard Quinn - TE/WR - Maple Heights High School

Richard looks like a D-I player. He's got a great body and is able to have total control of it. Very good hands along with size and speed. I can really see an active TE here but he creates many match-up problems for defensive backs. Commitment: Open

18. Brandon Harrison - DB - Dayton Chaminade Julienne High School

Some may rate Brandon higher than me, but I will stand pat. Brandon has the tools to play at any school in the country with the only thing holding him back being his height. He's clocked some good 40 times in camps (4.29 OSU Hand time) but OSU always seems to increase a players running ability. When looking at Brandon and comparing him to different defensive backs I have seen like Ted Ginn or going back to a Will Allen (OSU) or Ashton Watson (Michigan State) I have a different feel for him. He's different than all three of these players but still shows great skills. I may have him low but I feel good about where he's at. Commitment: Open

19. Mister Simpson - RB/FB - Colerain High School

What's not to like about Mister Simpson? Just watch him play and you will see a natural football player blocking or making a big run. Simpson is going to be one of those players you watch after high school. He's got that special something and if he keeps the work ethic he's going to shine even brighter. Having committed to Michigan the staff at UM is going to have a hard choice to make as to if they give him the ball or let him be a blocker. Commitment: Michigan

20. Matthew Tennant - OL/DL - Cincinnati Moeller High School

Tennant is the type of OL prospect that I like. Plays for a big time program and has progressed over time. He's got great feet and moves great down the field. Because of his athletic ability some college may even want him as a DT. If I was Tennant I would want to be an OL because he's got the ability to grow into something even bigger. Commitment: Open
