Canton (Ohio) McKinley running back Ryan Brinson , a 5-foot-9 and 167 pounder, rushed for 1155 yards, averaged 8.6 per carry, and scored 18 times during his junior season. Playing for one of the top big school football programs in the state of Ohio, Brinson played against tough competition as he established himself as a Division I college prospect.
"I don't have any offers," Brinson said. "But I get a lot of mail."
"And some coaches called. A coach from Michigan State called. Penn State and West Virginia called. And some others."
"Bowling Green came to the school to see me."
"Right now my top four is Michigan State, Penn State, West Virginia, and Ohio State."
"Ohio State sends a lot of mail. I'm going to Ohio State's camp Sunday. I'm going to Michigan State's camp July 11. I have to see about West Virginia's camp, see if they've had it yet or not."
"Right now I'd probably say the school I have the most interest in is Michigan State."
