    Grades are not a problem, Duane Long made a mistake and confused him with someone else. He reported this last week sometime. Bill Greene has backed it up, if I'm not mistaken.

    FWIW -- John McAllister, known by most as the #1 Ohio guru (he sells to colleges, not fans like ourselves) has Arvell as the #1 QB in Ohio.

    He has a 3.0 GPA...I'm guessing he is taking the June SAT/ACT?

    From has offers from Michigan State, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, Toledo and Kent State. His favorites are OSU, Iowa, Wisconsin, LSU, UNC, Syracuse and Michigan State. He is going to camp at Indiana, Ball State, OSU, Iowa, Wisconsin, and a few others.

    In my opinion, we HAVE to offer this kid. I don't want to get into any conspiracy theory Glenville-Wisconsin pipeline, but I'd like to have a mobile QB option to contrast our pocket passers in Schoenhoft and Boeckman. I'm hoping he holds out and waits for the OSU offer (ala Lenix), and keeps his grades up. I guess his speed could use a little work (4.75 40), but 6'4 is a good height for a QB. Just to be sure here, I've heard some people refer to him as mobile, while others have said he's a pocket passer. Can anyone clear that up for good? Anyhow, if not him or Hartline, then who? Sean Hakes? Miles Schlichter? Rudy Kirbus? Tim Tebow?

    Or, we just don't take a QB this year.... which is definitely a possability. Nelson is solid, but you don't offer him just to sever any future Glenville/Wisky ties. You bring in the best possable candidates. If the staff feels Arvell would be their best bet at QB, over other prospects at QB and other different positions, then they will offer and hope to get him.

    Arvell is more mobile than Zwick, more pocket passer than Smith.

    Glenville has nine Division I prospects this year - Ohio State can't (and shouldn't) offer each one. The Bucks will probably pass on at least five (and maybe seven) of the nine, but that won't sever the Glenville-OSU pipeline.
  8. hey, i tried searching for the sparq score but found nothing on it? what is a good score? i see arvell got a 42.58 which is very low compared to some of the players in the nation?

    LJB is correct. Glenville will have a lot of D-I talent year in and year out, but D-I talent doesn't necessarily mean Ohio State talent. Coach Ginn knows this and doesn't expect offers from OSU for all of his D-I-level players.
  10. ive seen the kid play, good player but i would be a tad dissapointed if this is our only qb.

    hes not a "athlete" quarterback, hes black-people seem to get that confused.

    he looked solid as a drop back qb, and solid as a "scrambler" never really excelled at either against mckinley. maybe someone whose seen him a bunch can add to this, but senate league games are hard to make decisions off of.

    i think nelson is a decent athlete that is being lost amongst all the glenville speed. he had an adequate arm and didn't make any foolish mistakes under center.

    otherwise i agree one hundred percent. 'pocket passer' and 'mobile or dual threat' are just football PC for black and white anymore. sadly few people actually see a player play other than some highlights and just label the dude on the color of his skin.

    From the Michigan State site...the article talks about Coach Ginn and his summer college camp tour. Nelson is not as well known as some other QBs but Coach Ginn thinks he is one of the best in the state, if not the whole country.

    Apparently looked very good at UC camp. Time will tell about an OSU offer, but definitely has the tools to make some serious noise on the the major D-1 recruiting level.

    The situation with Henton will most likely dictate how they handle Nelson...

    1. Isiah Williams, 6-2, 220, 4.7, Chicago (Vocational)
    Rocket-Arm QB gives a down Illinois program a big shot in the arm.

    2. Austen Arnaud, 6-3, 205, 4.8, Ames, Iowa
    Set to choose between Iowa and Iowa State. Terrific dual-threat QB.

    3. Nate Davis, 6-3, 200, 4.7, Bellaire, Ohio. </B>
    Raw but Davis has a cannon for an arm and he’s a natural athlete

    4. Mike Hartline, 6-6, 185, 4.8, Canton (Glenoak) .
    Needs to add bulk but Hartline has the potential to be a special player

    5. Alex Loukas, 6-4, 190, 4.7, Deerfield, Ill., .
    There’s not a hotter QB prospect in the Midwest. Tons of upside

    6. Demetrius Jones, 6-3, 190, 4.7, Chicago (Morgan Park) .
    “Double D” is an athletic QB who will flourish in the right system

    7. Jared Funk, 6-2, 175, 4.6, Arlington Heights (Ill.) St. Viator.
    Check this list in three years and Funk could be the best of the bunch

    8. Arvell Nelson, 6-4, 175, 4.7, Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville.
    Arvell needs to add bulk but he’s been impressive this spring

    9. Adam Weber, 6-2, 205, 4.8, Arden Hills (Minn.) Mounds View.
    Impressed on the spring combine circuit; Favors Minnesota

    10. Ben Chappell, 6-2, 210, 4.8, Bloomington (Ind.) South.
    Same high school as Rex Grossman…Committed to Indiana

    11. Matt Jansen, 6-2, 190, 4.7, Crown Point (Ind.) .
    Some feel that Jansen is the best quarterback in the Hoosier State

    12. Rudy Kirbus, 6-4, 205, 4.7, Cleveland (Ohio) St. Ignatius.
    Plays for one of the top programs in the Midwest…25 TD passes in ’04

    13. Mike Canfield, 6-1, 215, 4.6, Lansing (MI) Everett.
    Impressed at the Army All-American Combine in San Antonio

    14. Brennen Glass, 6-4, 215, 4.8, Springfield (Ohio) South.
    3,052 yards passing and 29 touchdowns as a junior

    15. Miles Schlichter, 6-1, 205, 4.7, Washington Court House (Ohio) Miami Trace. Athletic and good gene pool; Competition is a question mark but Schlichter could be very productive at the next level.
