100 - Midwest
Once again Ohio dominates the 2003 pre-season Hot
100 - Midwest. Cleveland (Glenville) cornerback Ted Ginn Jr. is one the top
prospects in the nation.
Toledo (Rogers) wide receiver Fred Davis reminds everyone
in the industry of Texas Longhorn wide receiver Roy Williams.
Linebacker Marcus Freeman, tight end Chad Hoobler and
defensive back SirJoseph Welch are others in the Buckeye State that look
tremendous on film and have bright futures ahead of them.
In my opinion, Ohio is and always be the crown jewel of
Midwestern football, although I’m sure that there can be some argument made
for Pennsylvania being top dog.
The Keystone State has more overall talent than Ohio this
year and that talent is lead by All-America quarterback prospects Chad Henne and
Bryan Savage (Wisconsin Commit) and Jordan Steffy are two
more Pennsylvania signal callers who are among the best in the Midwest at their
A.Q. Shipley (Moon), Rory Nicol (Beaver), Greg Harrison
(Shenandoah Valley) and Dan Connor four more reasons why Pennsylvania is top dog
So who is the #1 prospect in the Midwest?
After countless hours of watching film and evaluating
prospects, I feel that Bolingbrook, Illinois linebacker Kyle Williams is the big
prize in the Midwest.
Kyle Williams is a once in a lifetime linebacker that will
be a difference maker on the next level and has the potential to play football
The 6-foot-2, 218-pounder, ran a 4.58 40-yard dash at the
(Ann Arbor) Nike Camp and had a 37-inch vertical leap. His athleticism on the
football field is what separates him from other linebackers.
Williams is fast enough to play outside and strong enough
(450 bench) to play inside. His nick-name is “Bone Crusher” and he backs
that name up on the football field.
Kyle Williams is a tireless worker and he’s never
satisfied. He makes everyone around him better and he has the respect of his
coaches, teammates and competitors.
Iowa, Miami, UCLA, USC, Ohio State and Oklahoma have all
offered Williams a scholarship and are the finalists for his services.
Now we sit back and wait for the start of the 2003 season,
rankings will be changing every month.
Some prospects will move up, some down, others will enter
100 - Midwest for the first time and others will drop out.
That’s the beauty of recruiting and that’s what myself
and you the fan live for.
