Dayton (Ohio) Chaminade running back Javon Ringer had his senior season cut short by a knee injury, but is now looking ahead to his college football career. The 5-foot-9, 200 pound Ringer is recovering from surgery while also working to take care of everything academically.
"He had surgery on Wednesday," Chaminade coach Jim Place said. "We expect a full recovery.
"If we really pushed it he could be ready for track season. But we won't push it.
"USC looked at his film and said they wanted to start the process to recruit him. But he's not interested. He's very interested in Ohio State, Michigan State, and Tennessee. He doesn't want to talk to anyone else.
"He's going to Michigan State's game this weekend. He's going to the Ohio State-Michigan game."
Ringer is the No. 17 running back prospect in the Rivals.com player rankings and the No. 11 prospect in the state of Ohio.
Ringer rushed for over 2,000 yards during both his sophomore and junior seasons. Providing Ringer takes care of everything academically, don't be surprised if the Buckeyes offer a scholarship. And if that happens, don't be surprised if Ringer accepts.
