Some Names for the Class of 2015
Over the last two weeks, I have been working on a top 200 list for the Ohio Class of 2015. For me, since I have not been able to closely evaluate every prospect, the list is just an early one. Do these prospects in the Ohio Class of 2015 deserve to be on the list?
Joe Burrow - QB from Athens HS. Continues to get bigger and stronger. Tall 6'4. Manages the game. Can really "spin-it."
Marcus Copeland - LB from Bedford HS. Watched at the state wrestling tournament last week. Listed 6'1-200. Powerful and runs downhill well. Needs to be better at changing direction. Tough.
Jeffery Christian - CB from Colerain. Excellent hips. Fast. Listed 5'10-175. Typical tough DB from Colerain.
Darrin Hall - RB from Austintown Fitch. Just something I like about him. Bigger and stronger. Fast. Good burst. Gets better as the game goes.
Elijah Taylor - DL from Moeller. Much the same as Jordan Thompson, but bigger. Listed 6'3-275, but bigger now. Excellent burst. Plays pad-under-pad.
Justin Hilliard - LB from St Xavier. Listed 6'1-225. Has made big strides. Moves well. Good sideline to sideline, but probably an ILB. Would like to see him get nastier.
AJ Harvin - FB/LB from Marion Franklin. The best FB prospect in Ohio. Under 6 feet, but weighs 245. Powerful. Plays LB also. Most powerful RB in his Class.
Tyree Kinnel - DB from Wayne. Natural DB. Good hips. Smart. Understands. If he gets faster and better hips, could be a corner. Now a FS.
Chris Green Norwood - LB from Toledo Central Catholic. Best, most active LB in the Class of 2015. Fast, tough, and loves to play the game.
Dre'Mont Jones - DE from St Ignatius. Big, long, and quick. Excellent off the edge. Possible TE, but a DE first. Needs to learn to change direction.
James Daniels - OL from Warren Harding. A little short, but athletic. Strong and has good feet. Natural center.
Eric Johnson - WR/DB from Pickerington Central. Have always liked his toughness. Runs well. Good burst. Excellent hips. Needs to stay focused and commit 100%.
Reggie Rodgers - WR/DB from Massillon. Do not know if he is fast enough, but plays fast. Tough. Excellent ball catcher. Runs well after catch. Just something I like about him.
CJ Conrad - TE from Keystone. Needs to get bigger and stronger. Excellent hands. Deceptive speed. Needs to be more flexible.
These are just a few of the players that could be on my list. Before I upset some people, there is no hidden agenda here. For me, it is way too early to list a top ten. The early list of 200 should done April 1.
