The MSROHIO Underclassman Showcase on June 9 was a huge success. Numbers were surprisingly huge. Excellent instructors. Really good weather. Some talented players, actually in all classes. Most of all, the showcase was a chance to see alot of players who needed to identified and have their name "put-out" there.
Really hard in just one four hour block to evaluate 224 players. Also hard to really rate a player going into his sophomore. Also had some members of the 2017 Class workout. Just a quick look at some of the members of the Ohio 2015 Class.
