Gamble worth the gamble

Massillon (Ohio) Washington safety Brian Gamble is one of the more under-ranked and under-recruited players in Ohio.
After an amazing season at one of the top programs in the state, the 5-foot-11, 185-pounder still doesn't have a ton of offers on his resume, but he's hoping that he can continue to garner more attention and move up the starts.
"Things have been going well with practice," Gamble, the No. 41 player in Ohio, said. "But I haven't picked up any new offers lately.
"My offers are Akron, Ball State and Eastern Michigan. But I'm still waiting on some of the bigger schools like Ohio State, Pittsburgh and Tennessee. UCLA started sending me letters after the Ohio State NIKE Camp."
So why do those teams like him?
"My instincts are the biggest thing," he said. "I think they like my speed and tackling ability."
Gamble also is a star running back, racking up 1,571 yards and 22 touchdowns. He was also a force at safety with 100 tackles, four interceptions and four fumble recoveries.
Gamble said he would like to commit before the season ends and he knows what the perfect school will have.
"Good academics is first," Gamble said. "I want somewhere with a good sports medicine program. I want to be a trainer. I know Pitt has a nice one and Ohio State. Also tradition of the football program. And basically just where I feel most comfortable at."
