Who are they? I know Blaine Scott from east. Other than that, who is being recruited and by who?

Trevor HIcks of Washington CH Guard has been offered a full Ride to Robert Morris College in PA, and some other smaller D1 schools have offered.

Watch list for Jackson (seniors) would be Codey Roseberry and Cameron Williams.

Not for sure about schools, so I will stay out of that discussion until either of them make something official if they will continue their athletic careers.

Best of luck to them and the entire team.

It takes a lot for big time schools to look at the SE part of Ohio. We have them but they just can't be found.

If they are in SE Ohio then they will be found.

If you're a Senior and don't have a D1 Scholarship offer then you are not going to get one. You have to be on those D1 scholarship watch lists when you're a Sophomore or at the latest a Junior.

The athletes have to put some work in on there end to along with the coaches, if the athlete is good in SE they can be found. Over the years I have seen many good athletes come out of our area.

Reagan Williams (Jackson) - Stanford
Elijah Woolum (Jackson) - Air Force
Jaylen Prater (Wellston) - Northwestern

Off the top of my head, those are some guys from Jackson County that have just recently gone on to play at major D1 schools.

Tre Williams - Northwestern
Lutheran twins - Ohio
Some kid named Burrow - OSU
Gerald - OSU (hope I got that right)

And I disagree with several people's assertion that we have in SE Ohio. Our best players who've had the size and ability have had DI opportunities, and will continue too.

Thanks for mentioning Williams, Burrow, the Leuhrmans, and Tyler Gerald. I knew there were several other examples of guys going D1 from the immediate area in recent years, but my mind was drawing a blank on those pretty obvious examples.

Sounded like the topic is about kids in school now and not the past. Just do not hear about too many this year. Right off I only see one power house school in SEO and that looks to be Wheelersburg. Are scouts coming to Burg? Probably are. Right now, where are the boys to be found? So far we have six on the list. Most of the time you have a good year the year before and a lot of those boys coming back to have big time coaches to come into SEO. Too many times a boy can be looked at as a sophomore or JR. and come their senior year the team can be down and his performance will not be as good through the first half of the season and big time scouts seem to go elsewhere.

Too many athletes from this area when given a scholarship also fail to keep up with their collegiate commitments. They quit after a year or two. Not saying anyone in particular. Not trying to ruffle anyone's feathers. Just what I was told by some recruiters and coaches about the reputation of kids from this area. I've seen it happen myself. Makes it harder to offer an athlete from this area valuable scholarship money that could be used on an athlete more committed to playing football and getting an education for four years.

Cpt. Obvious,
Recent examples of those going, making it, and sticking with it:
Trevor Walls (Waverly) to New Mexico State
Derek Roback (Waverly) to Notre Dame transfer to Ohio University
Trevon Pendleton (Ports. West) to Michigan State

I mentioned recent examples because it seemed like people thought that SE Ohio does not get recruited. The topic is definitely about current recruits, but these examples show that it CAN happen.

It's really a matter of going to camps and being proactive about getting exposure, and not just relying on the scouts to find you.

Going back to the 60s I have heard about this happening so many time that it just might happen more than the kid continuing as far as they could.

I can name 25 others in the past 20 years, it has nothing to do about competition or how many stories the media writes. What does matter is their size and speed. And yes we do have fewer players in DI, but we also have a rural area with sparse population, our District (area) contains about 65 football playing schools from Brown County, up to Perry County over to Washington County.

No, they are not going to Burg, why? Because Burg has a ton of nice High School players, however they have no one who is knocking the doors off of College Scouts, More DI scouts are calling on Sciotoville East than Burg at the moment.

The FCS 1A in week one and two are beating the FBS schools or playing them tough. In fact the Ohio U team plays Gardner Webb and recently played two FCS schools that only recently changed. Texas State and Appalachian State. FCS gives close to 60 scholarships FBS 85. Southeast Ohio has really good players but getting noticed is something parents do not understand. Patriot league Fordham has a really good back from Ironton. The back last year from Athens is in the state record books for single season rushing TD's. He is traveling with Georgetown of the Patriot league . Both these fellows were offered at Div 1 FBS and decided to go in this direction. 12 players from Yale were offered from big schools.

SE Ohio stats are similiar to national statistics.. 6 out of over 1000 football players get FBS or FCS football scholarships each year.

Some guys play, some talk that they almost did. Go SE Ohio

True, Tyler Gerald got noticed and that opened the door for Blaine Scott etc... But those guys have something you can't teach and that is SIZE! Those guys are really good lineman but if they were smaller they would get overlooked no matter how good they were. We've all seen some excellent linemen play high school ball but most of them are undersized for the next level. Hopefully with the attention these guys are getting it will open the doors for athletes all over this area who would of been previously overlooked. I hope I didn't misspell anyone's name lol. Definitely looking forward to following these guys college careers. There are more kids than we realize that receive D1 offers... But it's hard for folks from this area to afford the expense that goes along with that. Full-rides are not all expense paid. So most of these offers are declined for various reasons but mostly for financial.

just some info, both Cagogan brothers played at Penn State, Gerald played tackle for Paterno, and Nate actually caught a td pass vs Northwestern that pulled the Nittany Lions to within a touchdown before PSU came back and JoePa won game number 400.

Full rides are all expenses paid to the Power 5 schools. They have a thing called "Full Cost of Attendance" that covers all expenses plus some extra spending money.
