Ohio State recruiting: Elite '15 MVP, 10/30-11/1 - How OSU commits fared in high school football

The ball is in your court. It's time to vote.

Will Justin Hilliard win his first Elite '15 MVP of the season this week?
Will Justin Hilliard win his first Elite '15 MVP of the season this week?

After racking up 18 total tackles in his final game at the high school level for Cretin Derham-Hall, future Buckeye defensive end Jashon Cornell took an early lead, but didn't have enough fuel in the tank to hold off his soon-to-be teammate Joe Burrow to win the Land-Grant Holy Land Elite '15 MVP for Week 9.

The Athens High signal caller Burrow bounced back from a knee injury last Friday to complete eight of his eleven passing attempts for 257 yards and six touchdowns to help lead the Bulldogs to a huge 77-14 win over River Valley.

Putting up huge numbers has been something Ohio State fans are more than use to seeing from Burrow all season long. His play last week was enough for him to run away with 50% of your votes to win his eighth MVP award so far this year.

With the season dwindling down to its end, did Burrow do enough this week to win his ninth MVP? The poll is open. You know what to do. Here are this weeks five Elite '15 MVP nominees for Week 10:

Joe Burrow

Helping Athens High to their 10th straight win, Burrow completed 23 of his 30 passing attempts for 379 yards and four Bulldog touchdowns in a 48-22 regular season finale win over Nelsonville York on Friday evening.

Denzel Ward

Playing both ways for the undefeated Nordonia Knights in a 41-7 victory over Wadsworth on Friday, Ward hauled in four passes for 114 yards and scored two touchdowns while also snatching up one tackle from his cornerback position on defense.

Rashod Berry

The latest OSU commit got things rocking and rolling for Lorain on Friday by catching a 91-yard touchdown pass off a broken play in the first quarter. Berry and Lorian never turned back, as they rolled to a 32-7 win over Warren G. Harding to secure a spot in the state playoffs for the first time in school history.

Eric Glover-Williams

Taking on 2017 OSU commit Danny Clark and Massillon Washington, Eric and Canton McKinley played a solid game but didn't have enough to walk away victorious, falling to Massillon by a final score of 31-21. The shifty Glover-Williams rushed the ball 26 times for over 100 yards and a touchdown in the loss on Saturday.

Justin Hilliard

In the battle of the St. Xaviers, Hilliard was a big reason why Cincinnati beat Louisville on Friday night. Hilliard finished with over 10 total tackles including a half sack in the 24-6 Bombers win over the Tigers.
