For the third straight week, Ohio State quarterback commit Joe Burrow of Athens High School dominated the voting polls to win the Land-Grant Holy Land Elite '15 MVP of the week award.

After going 10 of 14 for 219 yards and five touchdowns, Burrow defeated soon-to-be teammates defensive linemen Jashon Cornell, Dre'Mont Jones, linebacker Nick Conner, and defensive back Jamel Dean with 49% of your votes.

Ohio State might have had the weekend off, but the future Buckeyes didn't. You know what that means. It's time to vote for the Week 4 Elite '15 MVP. Here are the five nominees:

Joe Burrow

The Athens signal caller only played in the first half once again, but still put up numbers better than most top prospects. In a 55-9 win over Alexander on Friday evening, Joe connected on 12 of his 19 passing attempts for 298 yards, and five touchdowns. He also carried the ball five times for 34 yards in the Bulldog blowout.

Nick Conner

Just like every week, the future Buckeye linebacker starred on both sides of the ball for Dublin Scioto. Conner caught two passes for 51 yards, while also rushing four times for 20 yards and a touchdown. On defense, the four-star recruit finished with 14 total tackles and two quarterback sacks in the 26-16 Scioto loss to Westerville Central on Friday.

Denzel Ward

Playing wide out and defensive back for Nordonia, Ward finished the game with 165 yards receiving, including a 64 yard touchdown.and two total tackles from his cornerback position to help the Knights to a 44-21 victory over Highland. Ward and Nordonia are now 4-0 on the season.

Eric Glover-Williams

Leading Canton McKinley to their first win of the season, Glover-Williams rushed the ball 16 times for 117 yards and two touchdowns in the 28-21 victory over Hoover on Friday night.

Jashon Cornell

The four-star prospect might have played his best game of the young season on Friday. In a 42-20 Cretin-Derham Hall (MN) win over Forest Lake, Cornell told Land-Grant Holy Land he finished with 14 total tackles, which included two sacks and six tackles for loss.
