Kenton, Ohio quarterback Ben Mauk is one of the most prolific passers in high school football. Last season, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound signal-caller threw for 5,770 yards as a junior, drawing the attention from many college recruiters.
“I have offers from Bowling Green, Akron, Kent State, Eastern Michigan and Ohio,” he said. “But my favorites are Illinois, Michigan, Penn State, Iowa, Miami and South Carolina. They’re all recruiting me.”
Mauk was the Division IV Player of the Year as a junior and named the MVP of the state finals. His passing yardage last season set a national record and he added an amazing 60 touchdown passes to boot. He plans to be quite busy this summer at camps.
“I’m going to Purdue, Illinois, Michigan, Penn State, Pitt and Kent State,” he said. “I’d like to make a decision before my senior season starts.”
Michigan seems to be the team to beat.
“I’d commit to them if they offered.”
