2. QB Evan Shimensky
6-0, 175,'s 99th ranked quarterback

Five Miami University Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by

1. QB Andrew Kummer
6-3, 170,'s 85th ranked quarterback

2. OG Marcus Matthews
6-3, 280,'s 87th ranked guard

3. OG Treran Brown
6-4, 270,'s 97th ranked guard

4. TE Andrew Gudeman
6-3, 220,'s 100th ranked tight end

5. CB Jamarcus Darden
Small cornerback, but he has a lot of speed and quickness to make up for his size. Does a great job of tackling despite giving up a lot of size, he will hold on to the ball carrier until help gets there if he can't finish it himself. Lack of size will be a problem on the next level as he won't match up so well with bigger wide receivers. 

Five Ohio Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by

1. OG Jacob Welter
Named First Team All-League Offensive Line in the EBAL in 2010. Jacob Welter was named MVP of Cal's Camp for Offensive Line in 2009. Started on varsity as a 2008 sophomore at Danville (Calif.) Monte Vista at offensive guard. Welter says he can squat 500-pounds. Welter plans to major in psychology and reports a 3.0 core GPA and a 1670 SAT.

4. DE Andrew Bennett
6-6, 230,'s 126th ranked defensive end

5. DE Justin Haser
A defensive end and offensive lineman for his North Allegheny team, Haser plays with high energy, good leverage, and is strong at the point of attack. He may be better suited to eventually move inside to play defensive tackle of offensive line, because he doesn't show the quickness and change of direction of most college ends. Depending on the scheme, he could hold down an end spot in a 3-4, but he'll likely move inside.
