95. ** Jeremy Ebert (6-0, 170, ATH; Hilliard Darby)
I like this Ohio quarterback class. There are several underrated players that could help themselves with good summers throwing the ball. There are also a number of high school quarterbacks that will set themselves up with good summers showing as athletes and Jeremy Ebert is one of them.
Ebert could end up being a good defensive back but I like him as an offensive player. He is very elusive with the ball in his hands and can get to top speed in just a couple of steps. There are several throws on his film where he puts the ball 60 yards down the field. He passed for more than 2,100 yards and seven TDs, and rushed for better than 1,000 yards and seven more TDs.
Hillard Darby head coach Paul Jenne reports a 4.4 40. At least one major conference school sees him as a quarterback.
