While those players who are at the top of the Scout.com rankings received some praise in our Scout On The Road, we take a look at other members of the Class of 2010 who took part in one of Ohio’s premier events The Crosstown Showdown.

Quintin Cooper – CB - 2010

Clayton (Ohio) Northmont

Pledge: Ball State

 

Cooper almost came up with an exciting end of the game play against West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West.  With his team leading 7-6 and West with the ball and looking to put together a game ending drive to win the game, Cooper would make the last play of the night intercepting the pass and raced 60-yards for an apparent touchdown.  After the officials talked it over they called a penalty and nullified the score.  Northmont walked away with a major victory knocking off one of Ohio’s more talent laden teams.

 

Kevin Schloemer – OT - 2010

West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West

Pledge: Cincinnati

 

In a year with a very strong class of offensive linemen Kevin Schloemer is a name not many know.  With a great physical frame (6-foot-6, 270-pounds) Scholemer shows very good feet and use of his hands.  With long arms Scholemer does a very good job of getting engaged at the point of attack and keeping defenders at bay.  Needs to continue to show toughness and play a complete game.

 

Jordan Thompson – RB – 2010

West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West

Pledge: Open

 

Jordan Thompson has a chance to be one of the biggest jumpers in Ohio for the Class of 2010.  A strong runner with good balance and a nice burst, Thompson found the going tough on Thursday night but still showed signs of what can be expected.  College coaches are just starting to learn about Thompson as he sat out last season due to academics.

 

Brandon Neal – CB – 2010

West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West

Pledge: Ball State

 

Neal was overshadowed by a future college teammate Quintin Cooper in the game but showed good cover skills having to go against one of the top young receivers in Ohio Josh McClain.  A solid player with above average skills, Neal shows great promise to be a very solid college player.

 

John Peters – QB – 2010

West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West

Pledge: Open

 

Peters needs to open some eyes to get his recruiting on track.  With good size (6-foot-6 – 198-pounds) and a decent arm, Peters shows some skills but also shows why his recruiting may not be getting a lot of attention.  There are still several chances for Peters to shine and if he hopes to see his recruiting go to a BCS level he’ll have to have better performances.

 

 Justin Favors – TE – 2010

Trotwood (Ohio) Madison

Pledge: Open

 

If Justin Favors was just a couple of inches taller he’d be one of the top tight ends in the country.  But standing just about 6-foot-2, 212-pounds he often gets looked over.  A skilled receiver who knows how to get open and make the catch, Favors would be a perfect fit in a flex tight end position.  In the season opener Favors pulled down 6 passes for 105 yards.

 

Jordan Paschal – CB – 2010

Trotwood (Ohio) Madison

Pledge: Louisville

 

Jordan Paschal continues to take his game to another level.  A hard hitter, Paschal has the respect of his teammates and does a great job of supporting the run while also being able to cover receivers.  A Louisville pledge, Jordan Paschal does a great job of opening his hips and has a great burst.

 

A.J. Hood – OT – 2010

Cincinnati (Ohio) Princeton

Pledge: Open

 

A.J. Hood has the physical size you want from an offensive line prospect.  But while he has the physical tools he needs more time to develop the football ones.  Does show good feet and has the potential to be a better player at the next level.

 

Josh Harrison – MLB – 2010

Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne

Pledge: Wisconsin

 

Josh Harrison may not win you a foot race but he’ll win you some football games.  On Friday night Harrison made his presence felt with several tackles and a recovered fumble.  Showing great leadership and playing within his abilities make Harrison a complete defensive player.

 

Terrence Talbott – CB – 2010

Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne

Pledge: Michigan

 

Terrence Talbott didn’t dress for the first game of the season due to an injury to his foot.  Right now Talbott is week to week as the injury looks to be a sprain along with a bone bruise.

 

Andy Jomantas – OT – 2010

Dayton (Ohio) Chaminade-Julienne

Pledge: Open

 

Andy Jomantas is not a new name on the recruiting scene, but his stock is going up as he’s not moved from a tight end/defensive end to an offensive tackle and added some much needed weight.  Jomantas stands 6-foot-8, 250-pounds and plays with an aggressive streak and improving skills as an offensive lineman.  Jomantas could be a major steal for some college team as his ceiling has not been reached.

 

Miles Simpson – RB – 2010

Independence (KY) Simon Kenton

Pledge: Open

 

Simpson only got a few snaps as he’s still nursing a slight ankle sprain that is still tender.  He did carry seven times for 31 yards before taking the rest of the day off in his teams 29-8 victory.

 

Jordan Hansel – OG – 2010

Independence (KY) Simon Kenton

Pledge: Open

 

Jordan Hansel has the size (6-foot-4, 296-pounds) college coaches look for, but has not really seen a high interest level.  That should change as his early senior film makes the rounds and college coaches see a player who plays with a high motor on both sides of the football.  Hansel plays with a nasty streak and shows above average feet and technique.  Could be a major steal for a college program as a guard or center.

 

Marcus Rush – DE – 2010

Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller

Pledge: Michigan State

 

Marcus Rush didn’t disappoint as he was one of his teams top performers in week one of the season.  Rush provided pressure from the edge and also made a great play in tipping a screen pass and then catching it and running for an 8 yard touchdown.

 

Jeff Tanner – OT – 2010

Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller

Pledge: Wake Forest

 

Jeff Tanner continues to improve and showed why he’ll be headed to the ACC for his college career.  Does a great job of using hands and moving his feet but will need to continue to get stronger.

 

Jeremiah Goins – RB – 2010

Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods

Pledge: Open

 

Jeremiah Goins runs hard on every play and does so with power and speed.  At 5-foot-10, 227-pounds Goins is one of the top power backs in Southwest Ohio.  Great balance and the toughness to play on either side of the ball, Goins rushed for 117 yards and 2 touchdowns against one of the best defensive units in Southwest Ohio.

 

Dominique Brown – QB – 2010

Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods

Pledge: Cincinnati

 

With all the talent seen over the course of eight games and three days Dominique Brown was by far the best overall athlete on the field.  At 6-foot-2, 203-pounds, Brown has size, strength and speed.  While he’s listed as a quarterback Brown has the size and athletic ability to play several positions and do so at a very high level.  Many don’t project him as a college quarterback but he’ll be too good to have standing around holding a clipboard.  Against Cincinnati Moeller the future Bearcat rushed for 99 yards and 2 touchdowns while also passing for 105 yards under great pressure being sacked three times.

 

Detchauz Wray – QB – 2010

East Saint Louis (IL) Senior HS

Pledge: Open

 

Make no mistake about it Detchauz Wray is a major play maker with speed and a strong throwing arm.  Wray has no problem making any throw while also being capable of taking any snap and running for major yardage.  Still needs to work on his touch but has the skill set to play quarterback at the next level if given the chance.  Very dangerous when he rolls out of the pocket.

 

Courtney Molton – RB – 2010

East Saint Louis (IL) Senior HS

Pledge: Open

 

While Courtney Molton is listed at 5-foot-9, 180-pounds he may be closer to 5-foot-7.  But make no mistake about his ability on a football field.  Any time he touches the ball Molton is capable of breaking it long.  Great feet and capable to catch the ball out of the backfield, Molton has the ability to hit a second gear without much effort. Molton is a player who will find someone willing to take a chance just because of his speed; he’s also very fun to watch with the rock in his hands.

 

Jylon Spraggins – WR – 2010

East Saint Louis (IL) Senior HS

Pledge: Open

 

Jylon Spraggins has great athletic ability but I question the listed height of 5-foot-11.  What ever his height he’s got football skills and can play on either side of the ball.  Willing to block, Spraggins is another player with the athletic ability to become a corner in college.

 

Eric Howard – DT – 2010

East Saint Louis (IL) Senior HS

Pledge: Open

 

At 6-foot-2 and over 300-pounds Howard gets a low center of gravity and shows a great strength and burst coming off the line staying low.  Capable of playing on defense, Howard could also so be a guard or center along the offensive lineman.

 

Tim O’Conner – WR – 2010

Cincinnati (Ohio) Elder

Pledge: Indiana

 

Tim O’Conner is just a very solid wide receiver who does the little things to make up for what he lacks.  Above average speed O’Conner shows solid hands and the ability and willingness to go across the middle of the field if needed.

 

Selby Chidemo – WR – 2010

Cincinnati (Ohio) Elder

Pledge: Open

 

Selby Chidemo is said to be more of a baseball player than a football player.  In this game Chidemo showed great hands and the ability to get yards after the catch.  If he continues to play like he did in this game he may have to make a choice between the two sports.

 

Corey Mason – OLB – 2010

Cincinnati (Ohio) Elder

Pledge: Open

 

Corey Mason may have enjoyed the biggest night in his teams season opener.  Under the radar in recruiting circles, Mason showed toughness and the ability to make plays when called upon.  Major “Under the Radar” prospect with a high ceiling.  Needs work on staying in control as he at times will over pursue. Stock could rise greatly with this performance.
