We spoke with Canton McKinley football coach Ron Johnson this morning. Here are some topics we discussed:
Junior LB Jewone Snow has more than 30 scholarship offers. Snow, a first-team all-Ohio player last season, is listed at 6-feet-3 and 228 pounds. Johnson said Snow is much faster this offseason and has been efficient in his conditioning and workouts.
Johnson indicated Snow could make an early college commitment. Snow and his family have made several unofficial visits going back to last year. No timetable yet.
McKinley sophomore DE Steve Miller (6-4, 220) is getting plenty of college interest and is one of the best players Johnson has ever been around. (Johnson is a former assistant coach at Miami University in the MAC).
Bucknuts.com reported last week Miller has offers from Michigan State, Florida and Purdue. Johnson said the offers won't be official until Sept. 1.
Since there will be no Herbstreit football event at Fawcett Stadium this fall, the Bulldogs will play host to Huber Heights Wayne in Week 2. Wayne is a school near Dayton.
Two of the state's best players from the 2011 class will be featured during Sept. 5 game against Wayne. McKinley LB Steve Miller and Wayne QB Braxton Miller are among the sophomores with strong college interest. Braxton reportedly has offers from Ohio State and Cincinnati.
