Sean Draper did not emerge as a starter at cornerback for Cleveland Glenville until the end of his junior season, but the 6-0, 165-pound prospect was outstanding on the off-season combine circuit. Although this is his first fall as a full-time starter, Draper already holds seven scholarship offers.
The schools on Draper's offer list right now are Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Kent State, Ohio and Toledo.
"All of schools I got offered from, those were all from camps," Draper said. "The only one I didn't go to was Buffalo."
Draper has not scheduled any fall game visits, but he would like to see each of the schools that have offered him and possibly a few more that are showing interest so long as he can make it work with his season schedule.
"I want to check out all of them, because I don't know anything about them yet," Draper said. "The only one I got to stay around at was Ball State because my brother goes there and I stayed with him for two days before the camp. Him and his friends told me how it goes and the couple of days there felt like a home environment."
Draper has also been to Akron's campus several times due to their proximity to his Cleveland home. Ohio University was the first to offer, and has showed strong interest to this point.
Although he does not hold offers from any BCS schools at this time, Draper is hearing from several schools on that level.
"I still get mail from Indiana, I still talk to Pitt and then Coach Ginn was telling me something about Notre Dame," Draper said. "I really haven't talked to the coaches at Indiana on the phone yet and haven't asked Coach Ginn for their number, but I still get weekly mail from them."
Cleveland Glenville opened their season against nationally ranked Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edward and fell in a tough overtime contest. Draper was not tested by St. Edward, but goes into the rest of his schedule with confidence in his game.
"Since I have been doing so many camps, I am comfortable at that position," Draper said. "From what I have seen with the rankings that have come out, I feel that I have been overlooked. I feel that I am one of the best and deserve to be up there."
Glenville's next game will take place on Memorial Day at Ohio Stadium in Columbus against Camden County (Ga.) as part of the Kirk Hebrstreit National Kickoff Classic.
