Pack your bags, the party is headed three hours north up to Tiffin. The Dragons signed 15 players from Southwest Ohio including nine on the defensive side of the ball. There is plenty of quality in the quantity of signees for the G-MAC school.

The Tiffin defense reeled in three undervalued and underappreciated linebackers in Kweisi Jones, Zack Gaither and Antonio O’Berry. Gaither is a pass rush specialist. He had 18 sacks in his last two seasons at Xenia. Jones already has the size to step in an be a factor right away.

Tiffin also got some beef up front on the offensive line with 280-pound Gavin Robbins, 305-pound Braden Swank and 325-pound Zach Moorman, Swank was a OPSWA Division III Second Team All-Ohio selection and Moorman was named OPSWA Division II Third Team All-Ohio in 2020.

Indianapolis inked nine locals in their pursuit of a Division II national title. The Greyhounds are a combined 30-5 over their last three campaigns including a 20-1 mark in GLVC play.

Interior defensive linemen Wyatt Bullock and Brandon Smith excelled versus top-notch competition in two of Ohio’s best high school conferences (GCL South & GMC). They should contribute sooner rather than later for UIndy. Don’t let his size fool you, Jeremiah Lee was arguably the most productive player in Northern Kentucky over the last four years. He ended his career at Cooper with 4,469 all-purpose yards (1,260 return yards), 2,607 yards rushing, 2,175 yards passing, 41 receptions for another 523 yards, 23 touchdown tosses, 33 rushing scores, five touchdowns on returns (two KRs, two FRs, one IR), 62 total tackles and seven takeaways (five INTs, two FRs). Greyhounds fans are going to love Lee.
