2009 Football Recruits, Who is headed where


Ohio seniors continuing their athletic careers in college.

Ohio is one of the richest high school football recruiting grounds in the United States. Only Florida, Texas and California can argue more fertile soil. Here’s a look at the latest crop of Ohio standouts and where they are headed. Know someone not on the list…Let us know.

The first Wednesday of February every year is highly anticipated. Why? It’s National Signing Day for college-bound athletes.

The first signing day – for basketball, baseball, tennis, swimming,
wrestling, golf, bowling, gymnastics, hockey and volleyball – was held
Nov. 12, 2008.

Come Feb 4, football, soccer, track and field, cross country and field hockey players will solidify their commitments.

If you’re signing with a school (or already have) we want to know about it.

We will be putting together a comprehensive list of all Ohio athletes headed to college so please tell us where you are going.

We will update the list as we get info.

To submit information, email your name, high school, sport, position and college destination to: staff@jjhuddle.com.

Congrats and good luck.
