NWestern Ohio Underclassmen Combine

Many of the top football prospects in the Toledo, Ohio area gathered for the Northwestern Ohio Underclassmen Combine on Friday evening.

Toledo Central Catholic four-star QB DeShone Kizer shined at the Northwestern Ohio Underclassmen Combine.

With the help of event organizer Mike Robinson, 247Sports takes a look at the standout performers.

Toledo (Ohio) Central Catholic quarterback DeShone Kizer has become one of the state’s most touted recruits, as the nation’s No. 7 dual-threat passer has seen his most recent offers come from LSU and Alabama. He showed why the country’s best programs are making a run at him.

“Looked great,” Robinson said. “Came out and threw the ball really well. All of his balls were on target. He looked effortless throwing the ball. He was accurate, especially on his deep ball. He was throwing slant routes right on top of the defenders and he looked like the guy.”

Overall MVP honors went to Holland (Ohio) Springfield receiver Tyson Proctor, who according to Robinson ran a pair of 4.34 40-yard dashes and had a vertical jump of 38 inches.

Pushing Proctor for MVP honors was Whitehouse (Ohio) Anthony Wayne safety Sam Bruno.

“He went both ways,” Robinson said. “He ran good routes. He covered well. He was probably the best overall football player there.”

Kizer’s teammate at Toledo Central Catholic in running back/linebacker Paul Moses arrived with offers from Nebraska, Akron and Toledo and backed it up on the field playing both positions.

“He had a good showing,” Robinson said. “At running back nobody could cover him.”

The top lineman at the camp was Rossford (Ohio) High freshman Nathan Childress. He played both o-line & d-line, but Robinson says he best projects on defense at this point.

“He’s physical,” Robinson added.
