1. RB Julian Durden
Durden had an outstanding season against good competition after transferring from a smaller school. He is very patient and has great vision. His ability to stop and start on a dime and then to accelerate to top speed. he lacks ideal size, but it shouldn't hinder him in the right offensive scheme. He is a very capable receiver and a hard nosed kid who will block.

Five Ohio Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. DT Trae Clark
6-4, 300, Scout.com 21st ranked defensive tackle. A nose guard whose best attribute is his ability to occupy blockers, Clark fits into a 3-4 type of scheme where his biggest job is to hold his ground. Size can be considered a strength and a weakness, as he carries too much bad weight as a high school player, but is a naturally large kid. Will be much more effective at 320 as opposed to 340. Could end up as an offensive guard should his quickness not improve

Five Central Michigan Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. S Jordan Fields
6-1, 180, Scout.com 43rd ranked, three-star safety. Good athlete with good speed and change of direction. Smart, heady kid who always seems to be around the ball. Great ball skills and knack for making plays. Covers a lot of ground and smarts keep him from getting beat. A striker who will come up and hit, he is on the thinner side and he will get even more effective in run support once he gets bigger and stronger, because he definitely has the willingness and aggressiveness as a hitter.

Five Toledo Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. WR Corey Jones
5-10, 165, Scout.com 41st ranked, four-star receiver. He may not possess ideal size, but he plays bigger than he is. He likes to work the middle of the field where he can catch short passes and turn them into big gains. He can hit the seam and beat most defenders deep. He has very good hands and runs solid routes. He is very dangerous as a return man where he can make plays in the open field. He also rises up to the competition level as well as anyone. Size limits him to being a slot.
