Douglas Looking For Right Fit
Ohio is loaded at the defensive back position for 2013, and Avon's Ross Douglas is one of the highest-rated. After leading his team to the Ohio Division-II state title game, Douglas saw recruiting interest soar. Although the 5-foot-10, 180-pound, athlete stars on both sides of the football for Avon, Douglas is being recruited primarily as a cornerback by most schools, including Ohio State, where he visited Sunday. "Things went real well at Ohio State, and it was great getting to meet the new coaching staff," Douglas stated. "Coach (Stan) Drayton is recruiting me, but they still need to watch my film. The new defensive backs coach (Bill Sheridan) was just hired and he hasn't had time to evaluate me yet. They said they will be watching my film this week, and they will get back to me soon." "This was my first time meting a lot of these new coaches, and they seem quite comfortable," he added. "I dealt with Coach (Taver) Johnson before he left, so now Coach Drayton and I are starting to get to know each other. I will wait to see what Ohio State says and go from there." Douglas currently holds eight offers, including Tennessee, Connecticut, Northwestern and Boston College. Several other top programs are in touch. "I'm hearing from a lot of other schools, and I need to set up more visits," he explained. "Schools like Tennessee, Louisville, Michigan State and Michigan are high on my list. I've been talking to Iowa about once a week, and they say they're interested. Same with Illinois." "I'm hoping to visit Michigan and I've spoken to Coach (Greg) Mattison," he continued. "I think a lot of their program and would love to have that offer. I just have to see what happens with them, as far as offering or not."
