  2. This kid is HUGE. He is also a monster on the DL I have been to a couple of games this year and he was playing in the backfeild most of both games. He has a twin brother who is a middle linebacker that is all over the place, just a couple of inches shorter. From what I have been told ND is all over him too. So they might have the inside track but that was from a cousin who is in school with him.
    I am just gald to see my alma mater getting some attention for a player. They also have a great FB by the name of Eddie Welsh/or Welch.
  3. I've been friends with Jake since Jr. High and I will be glad to keep you guys updated!
    Yeah, Eddie is pretty good, he is thinking about walking on to OSU.

    Jake has offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, and Miami, OH. He is also intersted in OSU, Iowa, and Notre Dame. OSU is his early leader. OSU is recruiting him on either side of the ball.

    Jake will make a great D-lineman in the mold of Simon Fraser. He has great footwork and has the frame to carry 300 lbs.

    His brother Josh could also project as a D-Lineman and be able to put on about 50 lbs.
    Both kids work really hard and love to hit. They are great kids. Tressel types.

    By Chris Nida...Jake has offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Miami (Ohio), Indiana and Duke. OSU is clearly his leader. He will camp at OSU so the coaches can evaluate him. He was in Columbus for Junior Day.

    Versatile prospect Jacob Ballard of Springboro, Ohio will likely be one of the top overall players in the Buckeye state this year. Jacob recently added offers from Cincininati, Indiana and Duke. "He also recieved word from Michigan State that an offer will be arriving," mother Debby Ballard said.

    Jake and his brother Josh, also a fine prospect, will be at Nike Camp in Ann Arbor and plan to attend Ohio State camp in June.

    "Jake is keeping all options open, but continues to have a high interest in OSU," Debby Ballard said.

    From the ND site...Indiana, Ohio State, Iowa, Notre Dame and most of the rest of the Big 10 are recruiting Jake. He is considering attending camps at Ohio State, Iowa and Tennessee.

    Is he the top TE in Ohio this year?? If so, then we should offer because we need at least 1 TE this year and he sure seems to want to be a Buckeye.

    I think Jake wants to be on the defensive side of the ball.

    By Bill Kurelic...Jake is up to seven offers from Boston College, Miami of Ohio, Cincinnati, Indiana, Michigan State, Duke, and Louisville. His top 3 right now is Indiana, Michigan State, and Louisville. Ohio State is his favorite, but he knows he need to perform well at camp to get an offer.
