Ohio QB likes Cincinnati

Tucked away in Northwest Ohio is Ada, Ohio, and it just happens to be the home to one of the biggest sleeper prospects in all of the Buckeye State.
That's where 6-foot-3, 180-pound quarterback Zac Dysert is from, and after a strong showing as a junior he's starting to pick up more and more attention from the college coaches.
"Bowling Green called me the other night," Dysert said. "They told me they're really interested and they invited me up for a practice. I talked to coach Mick McCall. He's a pretty cool guy. They asked me about what I want to major in. I don't really know right now. I kind of want to be a teacher, and if not that, then a sports trainer."

Dysert already had an offer on the table from Troy early in the process, but he just recently picked up an offer from Cincinnati. It's an offer that he's really excited about.
"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."
It's pretty clear that Cincinnati is in a good position at this point, but is Dysert ready to pull the trigger quite yet?
"I'm not sure," he said. "I haven't thought about it quite yet. I need to talk to my parents more and talk to my coach about everything. I'd like to see what more options I have to look at first before I make a decision."
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."
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."
