    Since 2005, Ohio has started 17, 15, 12, 11, 10, 10,12 14, 12, 9 9 and 11 whites. They look to move up to 14 white starters in 2017.

    RB AJ Oullette lost all of last season after getting injured in the first game. He should return rightfully to the top of the depth chart and run for 1000 yards if he remains healthy for the whole season. Wr Brendan Cope has shown the ability to be a big play WR if the QB Maxwell can continue to improve. On defense the Bobcats are projected to start a snow patrol that includes one of the best LBs in the country - Quentin Poling. In the secondary white CB Bradd Ellis is a projected started along with S Grant Cunningham. We should all root hard for the Bobcats this season and catch as many of their games as possible.

    An NFL draft storyline to watch out for is that of Quentin Poling when comparing him to his former black teammate Blair Brown. Brown recieved alot of hype leading into last year's draft and was a third round selection. Also let's hope Bradd Ellis has a strong senior season at CB which will only help his cause at the next level.

    Players to look out for include QB Nathan Rourke, WR Jerrid Marhefka, WR Tim Helton, TE Mason Morgan, DT Kent Berger, NT Brian Arp, LB Dylan Conner, LB Cody Grilliot, S Tyler Gullett

    QB Quinton Maxwell
    RB AJ Oullette
    WR Brendan Cope
    TE Troy Mangen
    LT Joe Lowery
    LG Joe Anderson
    C Jake Pruehs

    Defense

    A starting white CB and RB nice! I think this might be the only team in the country to boast that this year, though Air Force is one injury away from sharing the title.

    And a snow patrol and white WR to boot! I think they are going to be the fan favorite on this site for 2017.

    Ohio in a 59-0 win over Howard saw cb Brad Ellis breakup 2 passes while AJ Oullette had 63 yards rushing in limited work but the one I had never heard of is soph. rb , Dylan Wears rushing 5 times for 38 yards in mop up duty. Not sure where he is on the depth chart but another one to look out for down the road.
