Ohio State verbal commits Tate Martell, Antjuan Simmons and many other future Buckeyes tore it up on the field last weekend, but only one could be named the Land-Grant Holy Land MVP of the Week.
Receiving 54% of your votes during the poll, class of 2017 five-star cornerback and longtime OSU pledge Shaun Wade walk away as the player of the week over his soon-to-be Buckeye teammates Tate Martell (22%), Antjuan Simmons (14%), Haskell Garrett (9%), and Brian Snead (1%). Congrats, Shaun!
Many of the commits were back in action over the last few days? Which OSU commit will be named MVP this week? The poll is now open. Let your voice be heard.
Here are your five nominees:
Another week, another MVP nomination for the four-star standout quarterback. After having a bounty put on his head by a Durango (NV) player on Twitter, Martell went out and lit up the Trailblazers defense on Friday evening.
In the 56-0 runaway Bishop Gorman (NV) victory, the U.S. Army All-American completed 7 of his 8 passing attempts for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Martell’s touchdowns through the air weren’t the only points he put up on the scoreboard; he also rushed for another Bishop Gorman score.
The future Buckeye defensive tackle once again proved why he’s considered one of the top linemen in country this weekend. On Friday against Columbus Bishop Watterson, the Cincinnati Winton Woods senior was key in his squad’s hard fought 34-27 win.
A threat on the line all evening, the four-star rated Cage finished with 11 total tackles and three quarterback sacks while also blocking a Watterson punt and returning it to the endzone for a Winton Woods touchdown.
The five-star offensive lineman might’ve not scored any touchdowns himself, but he sure helped his Miamisburg team put up some points during Friday’s win over Northmont.
Helping block the Miamisburg offense to well over 300 yards and four touchdowns on the ground, Myers and the rest of the hogs up front were huge in Vikings picking up their eighth win of the season over the Thunderbolts, 39-3.
The reigning MVP didn’t put up the stats like he did last week, but the five-star talent still made his name heard.
Lining up on both sides of the ball, Wade accounted for two tackles as a cornerback, and hauled in four receptions for 46 yards as a wide receiver in the 44-7 Trinity Christian (FL) victory over Episcopal School of Jacksonville (FL) on Friday night.
After being off the list for weeks, the 2017 kicker is back up for the MVP of the week award and for good reason.
Although he missed a 51 yard field goal attempt during the game, Haubeil was on point pretty much all evening for Canisius (NY), finishing 1-of-2 on field goals knocking in a 22-yard shot and three extra point tries.
His foot wasn’t done there in the back an forth loss to Erie Cathedral Prep (PA); he also kicked three out of his four kickoffs for touchbacks and booted numerous stellar punts, including a 51 yarder that pinned Erie Cathedral Prep’s back on the goal line.
