Early Combine Guys in Ohio 2012 Class

Whenever I start making lists or ranking college prospects, some one is going to be missed. After the four combines this past month, some prospects who I liked did well, but there will be more.

Nana Kyeremeh(5'10-164) from Thomas Worthington High School. A corner/wide receiver with tremendous speed. Recorded 4.3/40(handheld). Proshuttle-4.19 and 4.24. L-cone - 7.18. 31" vertical. From video- tremendous closing speed. excellent hips. tough on run support. Climbs for the ball. One of the better CB's in Ohio.

Kevin Houchins(5'11-178) from Brush High School. 33inch vertical. 9'4 broad jump. 4.27 pro shuttle. 4.58/40. Watched him on man coverage. Like his toughness and closing speed. Also one of the top corners in Ohio.

James Sanford(6'2 1/2-184) from Xenia High School. 36" vertical. 9'6 broad jump. 4.3 proshuttle. Solid 4.6 both times in 40. Really like him as a free safety. Will get faster, but has excellent closing speed. Also like his toughness in the one on one drills. On video- like his ability to make plays. One of the best true free safeties in the class.

Jalen Robinette(almost 6'4-199) from Bexley High School. Ran well- 4.51 and 4.55/40.
Needs to work on change of direction. 4.51-proshuttle. Wants to be a WR, but can play either inside DB position. Like his burst. On video- excellent anticipation. Finishes plays. Like his overall competetiveness. Could be one of the best free or strong safeties in the 2012 class.

Ross Franklin(5'11-195) running back from Johnstown High School in Central Ohio was a pleasant surprise. Ran 4.6/40. 4.38 shuttle. Excellent power ball throw- 36'6. Also broad jumped 9'3. From video- good vision. Like the way he changed direction. Good burst. Will need to do well in camps, but could surprise evaluators.

Anthony Zappone(6'2-222) linebacker from Westlake High School impressed me. A solid 4.7/40 guy. But ran 4.2 and 4.3 proshuttle and 7.2l-cone. Both good times for an LB. Also broad jumped 8'10. Very intense and competes. From video-like his downhill burst. Drops into coverage well. Must perform well at camps. Like his chances to be one of better LB's in state.

These are some of the players going under the radar. I always wonder whose radar they are going under.
