The eastern Ohio area doesn't receive nearly as much attention from scouts and college coaches as western Pennsylvania or other parts of Ohio, but each year it produces some talented players.
One such prospect from that part of the Buckeye State is Steubenville dual-threat quarterback Dwight Macon. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound prospect doesn't not have blazing speed or ideal size, but he's a supremely talented football player because of his instincts and toughness. You hear that about a lot of youngsters who ultimately don't have the opportunity to play football in the college ranks, but Macon's offer list would seem to show it's true with regard to him.
Steubenville is 2-0 on the year and on Friday evening Macon threw for two touchdowns. In his first game Macon completed 5-of-11 passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns.
"I'm probably going to be sending film just to all the schools that have offered me scholarships," Macon told Rivals.com in a recent interview.
He claims offers from Ball State, Toledo, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Wyoming, Kansas and Kansas State, though it appears as though he's only seriously considering some of the more local programs.
"I'm probably gonna make a decision toward the middle of the season. I'll take officials to Central Michigan, Ball State, Bowling Green and Toledo. I really don't have a favorite, but I really do like Central Michigan and Ball State a lot. They run a similar offense to us. They run the spread and let the quarterback run a lot."
