Taking a look at some excellent young talent in the Central Ohio area

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Welcome to week eight of the 2021 high school football season everybody. Football season is by far the best time of the year and we all know that. We are covering a handful of different athletes in this week’s DJRS Recruiting Blitz. We will be talking more about some really good prospects who need a light shined on them for week eight!

Isaiah Henderson (ATH / Pickerington Central / 2022): Henderson is a very well-known name not just in Pickerington but Central Ohio. His older brother plays for Michigan State and he plans to play at the Division I level as well. He has the tools to do so, as he is 6-foot-3 playing wideout and defensive back. Very lengthy and is a ball magnet, he just always seems to be in the right spot at the right time and comes away with the interception. He seems to be a well-rounded DB and I think he could very much play that at the Division I level and is one of the better 2022 DBs in the area, and it's naturally in his DNA to do so. Any Division I college reading this article, this is a guy you should immediately contact.

Tyler Love (QB / Teays Valley / 2022): Love has the Vikings sitting at a perfect 7-0 record on the season. As you may not know, Love stands at a smooth 6-foot-2, 165 pounds. This kid is very much slept on, but he shouldn't be. I can see him playing at the Division II level as a sophomore in college. He has pretty good ball placement and is an exceptional runner as he isn't scared to get down and dirty as you can catch him throwing some nice stiff arms or even running people over down the sideline. I can see him possibly leading this Vikings team deep into the playoffs and being an all-state selection with no argument. I think he can work a little bit on his throwing form possibly. He also is very decisive and can fool the defense by sprinting out and making the backers think he is going to keep it and keeping his eyes downfield throwing strikes to any receiver. Any Ohio Division II programs reading this should consider Love for their program.

Noah Reynolds (DE / Westland / 2022): Reynolds is 6-foot-3, 235 pounds and is impressive at the defensive line position. Much quicker than expected and makes it real hard on quarterbacks to roll out of the pocket coming his way because he has some speed to run with most quarterbacks. Nonetheless, he is much better than he was playing last year and I can see the growth in maturity and his development. The sky's the limit for him. I think he could possibly go on a scholarship at the Division II level or walk on and earn a scholarship at the Division I level.

Carl Allen (WR / DB / Pickerington North / 2022): Allen was in the argument for being the best wideout in Central Ohio and possibly the state with his speed, body control, sure hands and quickness off the ball. However, God had other plans for him as he was injured during track season this past year and unfortunately hasn't been able to play this season. But that hasn't stopped him from continuing to work his tail off and not miss a beat so he can go to college and play the sport he loves. He is a young man who won't accept being told no or being outworked. I have seen him continue to punch adversity back in its mouth no matter what! I know this is a kid college coaches would want to take a chance on when you have that kind of talent and hard work put together anything is possible.

Dawaun Green (RB / Pickerington North / 2023): Green is your “perfect” back or the running back you dream of coaching as he is 6-foot-1, 230 pounds. Green seems to be very coachable, is very quick in his reads and vision of the field and finding holes. He also can beat you to the edge which is very amazing for someone with that build. Green has helped the Panthers’ offense this year and looks to continue to do that in the postseason. Without a doubt he is a Division I running back. Offers will be rolling in for this rising Junior from Pickerington.

Jace Nincehelser (Slot / Safety / Groveport Madison / 2024): Nincehelser reminds me of a young hard nosed Julian Edelman. This kid is flat out a hard working individual who has earned everything he has to his name. He is an above average wrestler, he is a real solid football player and even with being young he isn't scared to go at it even with the older guys, hence as to why he is playing varsity as a sophomore in the OCC. He plays really physical rolling down from the safety spot hitting opposing players. This is a kid we all will need to keep a close eye on!

Tito Glass (RB / Marion Franklin / 2024): Glass simply has that “IT FACTOR” in his blood. He is so raw but he can play! I love what this kid brings to the table. He is so athletic for his size and age. He is very dangerous especially when it's one on one. His break away speed is also ridiculous. He is actually transitioning playing both ways for the Red Devils and he will be able to show that he is athletic enough to go around in different coverages and also see if he can pull any interceptions down. He is also very tough to get down, usually takes 2 or more kids to bring him down unless you go low.
