NCF On The Trail: Kent State Golden Flashes

Andrew Dowell (Lakewood, Ohio/St. Edward) had the hit heard 'round Ohio during a camp this summer in Columbus.

David Dowell is the flashy wideout with offers that have landed him on the ESPN Junior 300.

No matter how fans look at it, the two brothers for St. Edward are the oars that row the boat for the Eagles.

Burns, a massive 6-foot-7, 318-pound blocker, also holds scholarship offers from Akron, Bowling Green, Iowa State, Kent State, Maryland, Miami (Ohio), Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Toledo and West Virginia. Michigan, Northwestern and Wisconsin showed interest.

He registered an electronically timed 5.41 40-yard dash, 5.00 20-yard shuttle, 20-inch vertical, 33-foot power throw and 62.85 SPARQ this spring at a Nike combine.

Louisville currently sits at No. 18 in the ESPN RecruitingNation class rankings. The Cardinals have 18 total verbal pledges.

PM ET
Shane Roy (Reading, Ohio/Reading) and Brian O'Neill (Wilmington, Del./Salesianum) are both on board with Pittsburgh, according to multiple reports.

Roy, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound defensive end, selected Pitt over offers from Ball State, Boston College, Bowling Green, Illinois, Kent State, Miami (Ohio), Middle Tennessee, Ohio, Toledo and Western Kentucky.

Reading coach Scott Thamann told Cincinnati.com: "He liked so many schools, but Pitt really stood out for him. He really liked the campus and the coaching staff. He likes that they want him to play a true 4-3 defensive end."

Roy earned a first-team all-league selection last fall after registering 22 tackles for loss and 16.5 sacks.

O'Neill, a 6-foot-5, 235-pound tight end, also was offered by Coastal Carolina, Colgate, Old Dominion, Tulane, William & Mary and Youngstown State.

The Panthers held just one commitment -- from three-star guard Connor Hayes (Traverse City, Mich./West) -- entering June.

Previously only holding scholarships from Mid-American Conference programs, guard Wes Martin (West Milton, Ohio/Union) picked up an offer from Indiana and didn't waste much time before committing to the Hoosiers, according to multiple media reports.

Ball State, Bowling Green, Kent State, Miami-OH and Ohio also extended tenders to the 6-foot-3, 295-pound prospect. Other BCS programs, such as Cincinnati, Michigan State and Purdue, showed interest.

Martin is Indiana's fourth pledge for 2014. The class includes two offensive linemen and two players from the state of Ohio.
CINCINNATI -- With all the defensive talent at Cincinnati's Winton Woods High School, it is easy for a player to get lost in the shuffle. Jerrell Foster is just beginning to break out of the crowd.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Right now, Malik Duncan (Cleveland/Central Catholic) is losing the burrito battle.

That could change in the coming months, however, as the 5-foot-8, 167-pound Duncan continues to blow up on the recruiting scene.

A first cousin to BCS prospects Erick Smith (Cleveland/Glenville) and Jerome Baker (Cleveland/Benedictine), Duncan has a running bet with Baker every time the two get an offer.

Defensive tackle Michael Barwick (Cincinnati/Summit Country Day) has become the Indiana Hoosiers' first Class of 2014 commitment, multiple sources report. He was recruited by Indiana run game coordinator/offensive line coach Greg Frey.

Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Hampton, Kent State, Toledo and Western Michigan also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-1, 290-pound prospect.

Indiana is Barwick's only BCS conference offer at this time, but other programs, including Cincinnati, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon, Purdue, West Virginia and Wisconsin, expressed some interest.

He'll be included as part of ESPN RecruitingNation's next rankings update.
