    Ht: 6-1
    Wt: 195
    Position: RB
    High School: Columbus Grove HS, Ohio

    Small-school back but is a great athlete. Ran for well over 2,000 yards in 2003 while leading his team to a 15-0 record and a Division VI state title. Was named Division VI offensive player of the year. Also won the state title in discus, was sixth in the shot put and ran the lead leg of his school's 4x100 squad, which finished fourth.

    Ohio State - High Interest
    Iowa - Med Interest

    Mili: A lot of more knowledgable High School football followers than I am are touting Maag for Mr. Football this year. He apparently is quite a player. Too bad it is in one of the smaller divisions. They play great football, don't get me wrong, but they get a hell of a lot less pub than the big Div I and II schools.

    Edit: Finish my damned thought.

    I played against his brother Ben when I was in high school. He was a horse too.

    Columbus Grove's conference also doesn't help matters much as they play in the very weak Northwest Conference.

    I saw him last year and he is the toughest 190-195 pounder I have seen. I don't know if he has the speed to make it at a Big Ten school as a RB but could make a heck of a DB also. I will be seeing him again this year versus Bluffton. One thing for sure he is well coached. Coach Cooper has a reputation as a very good coach and instructor.

    I watched him play against my alma mater, Monroeville, in the state semis. He tore us up for over 200 yds I beleive. Hes a very good back but his line was pretty good last year. He also seemed to go down on first contact, but had great vision and pretty good speed. I dont think he is a Big 10 back, but could have a good college career at a MAC school. I feel he could possibly be a better DB prospect at safety for a Big 10 school. I also saw him in track, he was a good sprinter, but nothing special. He is a great athlete though, evidence of that was after rushing the ball 30 times against us, I looked over to their sidelines and saw him running up and down the track doing backflips. He probably is the best back in d6, d5, and possibly d4.

    I was looking through Mili's Prospect List (btw, great job Mili!) and saw Blaine in there... Columbus Grove is my alma mater so I thought I'd give his total stats for the year. The team lost in the second round of the playoffs finishing the year 10-2. He finished the season with 1509 yards and 27 TD's. He got injured towards the end of the regular season, only had one carry the first playoff game (2 yard TD) and was held in check in their second and final playoff game this year (71 rushing yards, 0 TD's) . Career totals: 6300+ rushing yards and 98TD's.

    IMO, if he gets a scholarship to Ohio State it will be for track and not football and I think that is a long shot. Throws the discus 180+, shot 55+, would be a very good hammer thrower with his combination of strength and speed. Obviously I would love to see him at Ohio State but most likely he will play football for a MAC school, my guess would be Bowling Green or Toledo.

    Congrats to the Bulldogs on a great year and a great career for that senior class... 3 Regional Championships, 2 Final Fours, and 1 State Championship!

    BTW, If you read this Sears... what year did you graduate from Paulding? You mentioned you played against Ben and I was in high school at that time also... just curious.

    I graduated in '94 from Paulding and remember Ben and a guy named Harlan. They both were absolute monsters.

    The 4th place 100 meter team in Ohio D-III track is a far cry from blazing D-1 Dustin Fox type speed. The winning 100m time in D-III is usually well over 11 and he is a relay guy-not in the finals or anything. I'm sure he could run my slow ass into the ground, but in and of itself that fact does not impress me as regards his speed.
