Ohio Insider: A Look At The Recruiting Classes For JUCO Programs In The State


By JD Heilmann and Dylan Hefflinger

Ohio Scouting Director and Ohio Editor in Chief/NW Scout

With the start of the fall signing period upon us, JD Heilmann, the director of scouting for PBR Ohio, breaks down the top recruiting classes based on in-state prospects. We already did a three-part series examining the recruiting hauls of Ohio’s Division I programs as well as an in-depth look at the Division II programs. For this one we take a look at the recruiting classes for JUCO programs within the state. Beyond the surface, we drill down deeper into immediate impact players, sleepers in the class, and other behind the scenes information that went into a player choosing their college program.

Over the next two weeks, we will also breakdown the in-state recruiting hauls for Division III and NAIA.
