Ohio’s Class Of 2009 Top Wide Receivers


Painesville Harvey WR Chris Fields
This is the fourth installment of our “position breakdown” in which we take a look at each position in the state and rank the top five players at each. Today, we take a look at the wide receivers.

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.

Today we have the wide receivers and tight ends

1.  Chris Fields – Painesville Harvey 

2.  Bryan Underwood – Cleveland Heights

3.  Dale Peterman – Youngstown Ursuline 

4.  Terence Davis – Freemont Ross 

5.  Dan France – North Royalton

Overall Grade For The Position:  “C+”  Fields is definitely the cream of the crop in terms of Ohio receivers.  Underwood is a solid prospect, but after that there is no sure Big Ten level prospect in Ohio, especially at tight end. 

Most Likely To Break Into The Top 5:  Tight end Anthony Talbert from Cincinnati Winton Woods.     

Most Likely To Star In The NFL Someday:  Fields is definitely the guy.  He has the potential to be a very good one for the Buckeyes and have a shot at the NFL.
