There is never a shortage of high school talent for recruiters to pursue in the state of Ohio. The Buckeye State is always one of the country's strongest state's when it comes to college football prospects.
So now that the spring recruiting period is over we revisit a series we ran at the beginning of March breaking down the Ohio class of 2009 by position. We look at our current Top 5 prospects at each position, give the position an overall grade and more.
Earlier this week we broke down the defensive line. Today we have the offensive line.
1. Marcus Hall – Cleveland Glenville
2. Jack Mewhort – Toledo St. Johns
3. Corey Linsley – Youngstown Boardman
4. Sam Longo – Bellbrook
5. Chris Freeman – Trotwood-Madison
Overall Grade For The Position: “A-” Hall is one of the country's top offensive line prospects. Mewhort and Linsley are two of the top offensive linemen in the Big Ten region. Longo and Freeman are not far behind. All five have what it takes to excel at the next level.
Most Likely To Break Into The Top 5: Ryan Spiker from Dresden Tri-Valley is a guy that has a number of solid scholarship offers. The Bucks will take a good look at him during their June 20 senior advanced camp.
Most Likely To Star In The NFL Someday: Marcus Hall. He is big, athletic and has plenty of potential. If he selects Ohio State it is not hard picturing Hall as a future Buckeye great and a future NFL draft choice.
Up Next: Fullbacks and running backs.
