Ohio's Top Uncommitted Prospects

Donovan Munger

The state of Ohio regularly produces well over 100 Division-I prospects annually, and the 2013 class will be no exception. Although many of the top prospects have made their commitments, several highly-rated players are still uncommitted. Who is still available in the state?

Shelton Gibson 6-foot-1, 190-pounds. Wide receiver. Cleveland Heights. FOUR-STAR. The speedster holds double-digit offers, including Ohio State, Auburn, Illinois, Nebraska, Pittsburgh and West Virginia. Wants to take all five visits, but nothing is set in stone yet. Looking like a decision might come near National Signing Day, and he has consistently listed Auburn and Ohio State as his two favorites.

Donovan Munger 6-foot-3, 290-pounds. Defensive tackle. Shaker Heights. FOUR-STAR. The power plant on the inside has put together a great list, with over 25 scholarship offers. Munger recently scheduled an official visit to UCLA, and has stated he will also take an official to Ohio State. Nebraska, Louisville and Tennesse are also in the running for Munger.

Lovell Peterson 6-foot-3, 270-pounds. Center. Huber Heights Wayne. THREE-STAR. Only three offers at this time (Illinois, West Virginia and Ohio University), and there is reportedly work yet to be done in the classroom. If Peterson can get his academic record in order before Signing Day, look for the offer list to increase dramatically.

Kyle Meadows 6-foot-6, 275-pounds. Offensive tackle. Lakota West. THREE-STAR. The athletic lineman holds over ten offers, and has described himself as "wide-open" recently. Has taken two official visits to date, West Virginia and Oklahoma last weekend. Will be interesting to see if the Sooners offer, and how that might affect Meadows. Also holds offers from Florida State, Illinois, Louisville, Pittsburgh and others.

Marcus Ball 6-foot-3, 205-pounds. Safety. Westerville South. THREE-STAR. With an offer list that reads like the AP Top-20, Ball is a top prospect. Lists Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Illinois, Arizona State, Michigan State and Tennessee as his leaders, and all but the Vols have offered. With an older brother playing at Wisconsin, could that give the Badgers the edge?

Christopher Worley 6-foot-3, 195-pounds. Linebacker. Cleveland Glenville. THREE-STAR. A strange recruitment, with Worley only visiting Ohio State and not really checking out any other programs at all. Is he the Buckeye lock it appears from the outside? Have to see if he visits the likes of Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Michigan State, Illinois, or anyone else. He does have former teammates playing at both Ohio State and Illinois.

Antoine Miles 6-foot-3, 265-pounds. Defensive tackle. Canton McKinley. THREE-STAR. Just completed an impressive senior season, and the underrated prospect is going to be a good one at the next level. Miles states he is down to Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and West Virginia. Looks like the Bearcats could be in the driver's seat.

Tre Williams-Brown 6-foot-3, 230-pounds. Defensive end. Trotwood-Madison. THREE-STAR. Has had an injury-plagued senior season, and only holds one BCS offer (Arizona) among his five offers. The Trotwood players generally put recruiting on the back burner during playoff runs, so look for this one to heat up in a few weeks.

Jaleel Hytchye 6-foot, 165-pounds. Cornerback. Cincinnati La Salle. THREE-STAR. One of the top cover men in the state, and a star in the classroom as well. Holds an impressive list, with nearly 20 offers. Has scheduled official visits to Pittsburgh and Kentucky. Also has offers from Penn State, Mississippi State, Cincinnati, Northwestern, and others. Claims to be in no hurry to make a decision.

Jerome Lane 6-foot-4, 215-pounds. Linebacker. Akron Firestone. THREE-STAR. One of the top overall athletes in Ohio, and the size/speed combination is intriguing. Offers from Toledo, Akron and Washington. Might still need to do some work academically, which could be the holdup on more offers.

De'Niro Laster 6-foot-2, 220-pounds. Linebacker/Tight end. Cleveland Heights. THREE-STAR. One of the players on the rise in-state, and his senior film has several top college programs checking him out. Holds double-digit offers, with Minnesota and Buffalo being scheduled official visits. Will visit Penn State this week, and an offer could put the Nittany Lions in the driver's seat. Also hearing from Purdue, Louisville, Georgia Tech, and others.
