Cupp Is One To Watch In Ohio

Cupp Is One To Watch In Ohio

The class of 2016 in Ohio is shaping up to be quite special, and the crop of offensive linemen is especially impressive. Leipsic tackle Gavin Cupp is a prospect of note.

The offensive line class in Ohio is already looking like a special group, with players such as Liam Eichenberg, Tommy Kraemer and Tyler Gerald all holding BCS offers.

Leipsic offensive tackle Gavin Cupp (6-foot-5, 275-pounds) impressed last week at Ohio State, and he deserves to be listed with the above group. Cupp holds two offers at this time.

"I have two offers right now, from Bowling Green and Toledo," Cupp stated. "I have also been to Kentucky, Ohio State and Notre Dame for camps this summer. Kentucky was kind of a last minute camp for me, but I did really well. They didn't really know until seeing me in camp, but they said they really liked what they saw. They're going to be recruiting me going forward, and I'm interested in them."

Cupp also had great experiences at both Ohio State and Notre Dame, and is high on both programs.

"At Ohio State, Coach (Urban) Meyer and Coach (Ed) Warriner both said I'm not ready for an offer yet, but that's understandable because I'm only heading into my junior year," he explained. "They taught me a lot at their camp and I felt I did really well. I've rooted for Ohio State my whole life and I'd love to have that offer."

"I've been to Notre Dame twice now and really think a lot of their program," he added. "I was there for a campus visit earlier, and then back there Tuesday for camp. I spoke with Coach (Harry) Hiestand a lot, and I can see why he's considered one of the top offensive line coaches in the country."

"Notre Dame said I would need to come to camp and prove to them I could play when I visited there the first time," he continued. "Once they saw me work out, Coach Hiestand said he was very impressed and said I had a good day. Hopefully that leads to something good for me with Notre Dame."

Scout.com will continue to track Cupp over the next two years and will continue to report on his progress. He has the ability to play at the BCS level, and should be attracting bigger offers.
