Ohio QB adds another offer

Ada, Ohio, quarterback Zac Dysert has picked up another scholarship offer.
After taking an unofficial visit this weekend to Ball State, the 6-foot-3, 180-pounder picked up an offer from the Cardinals. That goes along with other offers from Troy and Cincinnati.
There's definitely plenty to like about him on tape. As a junior, he completed 299 passes on 458 attempts for 3,832 yards. Dysert completed 65 percent of his passes while throwing 31 touchdown passes for the Bulldogs who went 7-4 last year. Dysert will be a four-year starter, and he threw for more 2,000 yards as a freshman and 2,500 yards as a sophomore.
"I still need to work on my speed some," he said. "I run a 4.8 now, but I want to be faster. I'm working out in a place in Lima, trying to get faster. Most of the time, I'm a pocket passer, but we do a lot of roll outs."
Heading into the visit with Ball State, he was pretty high on Cincinnati. The Bearcats had made a big push with him, thanks to the efforts of assistant coach Greg Forest.
"I really like Cincinnati," he said. "I went down there for a junior day. Right when I walked in, I knew I was going to like it a lot. It was really nice. I talked to coach Greg Forest, and we still talk a lot. He used to coach here at ONU (Ohio Northern University) in Ada, so he kind of knows what's up to be from around here. I call and talk to him about once a week."
A few schools that have also been showing interest include Ball State, Utah and Akron.
"I talk to Ball State a lot," he said. "And I've gotten to know Aaron Alford at Utah. He used to be at Akron, so that's how he knows me. He came down to my school one day when he was at Akron, and he really liked me. He sends me a couple of texts a week. He brought my tape with him, and he showed it to the staff there at Utah. They really liked it."
