It was a big Tuesday for 2014 commit Damon Webb who received his U.S. Army All American Bowl jersey. Webb is one of several current commits who have been presented with their jersey and in just a couple short months will have the opportunity to go up against some of the best prospects in the country. Though that game will be a big one, Webb is awaiting Cass Tech's biggest game of the year on Friday when the Technicians will square off against Dakota High School in a battle of two undefeated teams in the Michigan high school football playoffs.

Freshman phenom Danny Clark, who is extremely bullish on the Buckeyes, is in the middle of the OHSAA football playoffs. Remember, over summer he told our staff that once Ohio State offered, his recruiting process would be over. You can view the whole quote here. Still a little raw, Clark's strength is his accuracy and decision making. Though he's not the most mobile quarterback in the world, Clark is an elite division one prospect and will continue to get better as he matures through his high school years. This season he was forced to grow up in a hurry as he took over full-time starting duties early in the season and eventually led the Tigers to a 9-2 record. In case you haven't seen him yet, he recently released a highlight film of his season up to this point.

Like Danny Clark, current commit Malik Hooker released his senior season highlight reel, but his went live yesterday. Pound for pound, Hooker is one of the best athletes in the entire country. His ability to play offense or defense will help in at the next level as it will give him many options to be successful. As a safety, Hooker plays the ball well and can cover ground in a hurry. Flip it over to the offensive side of the ball and his 6'2 frame creates a mismatch for just about anyone that lines up against him. When all else fails, Hooker as an uncanny ability to just out jump an opponent for the ball. The future looks bright for for the Pennsylvania native, see for your self.

QUICK HITS:

-Quarterback Stephen Collier and kicker Sean Nuernberger were the latest commits to sign the midyear financial aid agreement, joining Curtis Samuel. Though it was released that Marcelys Jones was included in the mix, it seems that those notions may have been a bit premature.

-Ohio State offensive line target Frank Ragnow has announced that he will be taking a visit to Florida State this weekend.

-Basketball commit Jae'Sean Tate tells our Charles Doss he will sign his LOI today when the early national letter of intent signing period begins, but won't have his ceremony at Pickerington Central High School until Thursday.
