Local school offers DeWeaver

Trotwood-Madison (Ohio) quarterback Messiah DeWeaver is ready to pick up his football and camp anywhere, and that approach has yielded another offer for the 2016 prospect.
"I was at Cincinnati on Friday. That's when they offered me," DeWeaver said. "They loved me at the workout and told me they think I will be the best quarterback in Ohio, so they wanted to grab me.
"But they didn't offer me that day. What happened was they had talked to my coach after the workout and said they already know they wanted to offer me."
For DeWeaver, Cincinnati is nearly the hometown school as he lives in a suburb or nearby Dayton. Proximity to home does not matter as much to him as athletic fit, however.
"I have interest in them," he said. "It's going to boil down what school best fits me, no matter how big the school is or where it is at, but I do have interest in Cincinnati.
"I don't really try to say I like one school too much. I think sometime around next spring is when I am going to sit down with my parents and decide where I want to go. Any school that is showing interest is a school I am looking at."
The 6-foot-3, 198-pound DeWeaver continues to stay active on the camp scene. He is down at Texas this week working out for Charlie Strong's staff, which offered him when they were at Louisville.
"I am familiar with this coaching staff and we know each other, so it was an easy (decision) to come down here and perform," DeWeaver said. "They have told me I am doing a good job, they like how my body has filled out and my mechanics have gotten better, so it's been great feedback so far."
Following his appearance at Texas, DeWeaver will be attending the Sound Mind Sound Body Camp in Michigan on Thursday, then has plans to camp with both Michigan and Michigan State later this month.
