Bentley Now Holds Four
One of the more underrated prospects in Ohio for 2012 is cornerback V'Angelo Bentley of Cleveland Glenville. As a junior starter last year, Bentley impressed with his coverage ability and his skill in the return game. "I consider myself a play-maker and I'm comfortable on either side of the football," Bentley said of his play. "Right now, it looks like cornerback will be my spot at the next level, because that's the position most schools are recruiting me to play. It really doesn't matter to me at all and I'll do whatever it takes to win." That type of attitude, combined with his impressive athletic ability has college coaches checking out the 5-foot-9, 170-pound, athlete. Bentley is currently ranked as the number-44 prospect in Ohio. "I have four offers at this time, from Kent State, Akron, Illinois and Pittsburgh," he reported. "I like Pittsburgh a lot and I was there for junior day a few weeks ago. I liked everything about the campus and the facilities, and the coaches were great to me." "I don't know too much about Illinois, but I'm planning on visiting there this summer," he added. "I know people that are at Illinois right now and they like it a lot. I'm still very wide open about recruiting and hoping for more offers." There are a few other schools that are showing a lot of interest in Bentley at this time, and although they have not offered, he feels they could be close. "Ohio State has been recruiting me for a while, and we talk every so often," he explained. "I'm being recruited by (assistant coach) Taver Johnson and he seems like a real cool guy. Air Force is also recruiting me and I'm very interested in them also." Bentley is also a track star at Glenville, thus he hasn't been able to take any unofficial visits this year, but that will change come summer. "Because of my track schedule I couldn't go to Ohio State last week, but I will be there this summer for camp," he added. "We are supposed to go on a bus tour this summer, so I'm hoping to go on that and check out a bunch of different schools."
