    Jovani favors Michigan, Purdue, and Tennessee, but also has interest in Miami and Florida State, and claims an offer from Illinois; he apparently has no interest in Ohio State at this point.

    The OPS guy compares his hitting style to that of Will Allen. He says Jovani is a true cover corner who shows the same hitting style of Will Allen. He saw him match-up with some top senior DI recruited receivers and hold his own. His game is played at a fast & intense pace, and he possesses the speed to break on a pass in a spilt second. In coverage he saw him use great technique in getting position on receivers, and either make the play or kill the play.

    Jovani is coached by former Chicago Bear Maurice Douglass. tOSU, USC, ASU, OU, UK, Illini, N. Dame, FSU, Miami, Michigan, Purdue, and Tenn. have been inquiring about Chappel. Chappel was "hands down" the best player at the Cincy MSL camp last year. He was also able to showcase his speed and cover skills at the Junior AA combine. There were 4 videos provided. He looks like a good tackler, but as always it is hard to tell if he truely posseses great cover skills on these type of films. He is listed at 5'8 by this report and that seems about right imo.

    Gosh, can scUM please continue to recruit these tiny dbs? Once Lyons, Hartline and others come of age, as well as possibilities with Hornsby, etc. we might have to ask our receivers not to jump vs. scUM corners in order to make it more challenging and better preparation for our bowl games.

    CB's need to be fast and quick as opposed to big and tall. Jump ball situations where a 6'4 guy is simply outleaping a 5'10 DB are not extremely common, whereas a DB needing to react immediately to the ball w/ quickness are-that's where smaller guys make their mark. A good CB should not be reacting to a large receiver, he should be reacting to the ball, and using his speed and quickness to make a play first. That's why there are plenty of 5'10 CBs in the NFL doing just fine. If you remember Antoine Winfield, he had one nightmarish game against Plaxico Burress, but was an All American at OSU and is an All Pro caliber CB. Why-he hits and has great technique and quickness.

    antoine was a one in a billion talent at corner. never will be another like him.

    I wouldn't say that at all. Winfield was a hell of a player, but to say 1 in a billion-you really are smoking rock. He is/was a much better hitter than most CBs, but there have been plenty of college CBs w/ his level of skill since 98'.

    By Chris Pool...includes video. Jovani is one of the best cover corners in the Midwest. He has great closing speed and good hips. Size is all he is missing.

    Chappel has offers from Illinois, North Carolina, Penn St., and Eastern Michigan.

    North Carolina, Penn State, Ohio St., and Tennessee are his favorites. Jovani was at the OSU junior day, and is very interested in becoming a Buckeye. It appears he will wait until after the season to make a decision.

    Scout $
    Boston College, Notre Dame, Purdue, Illinois, North Carolina, Eastern Michigan, and Toledo have offered. Alabama, Wisky, and Wva may soon follow.

    i wouldnt be surprised if osu offered him at camp if he shows as well as everyone seems to think he will, especially with walls looking like he's going elsewhere.
