The Columbia Buckeyes

The Piqua Indians, Ohio's Division II Champions

Star defensive lineman Shea Selsor from Piqua, Ohio, (not far from Dayton and near the Miami of Ohio campus), is coming to Columbia.

Shea netted eight sacks and 51 solo tackles this past season as Piqua High School won the Division II state championship.

He's probably bulked up a bit, but he was last listed at 6"3 and 226 pounds.

Anybody who's read this blog over the years knows of my enthusiasm for Ohio-bred football players, and how I lived in the Buckeye State for awhile myself.

Piqua is not far from Kettering, Ohio, home of 2007 Ivy League Rookie of the Year Alex Gross. Getting to Clark Koury's hometown of Dublin, Ohio is not such a bad drive from Piqua and it's possible young Mr. Selsor has heard of fellow Ohioans Drew Quinn, Lou Miller, Derek Lipscomb, Jason Pyles, Tim Skalak, and Eli Waltz.

Something tells me that by the time we get the full list of incoming freshmen, we will see that Ohio has become the #1 recruiting state for the Lions.

Was Chris Zingo the best linebacker in the Ivy League?

Please comment.

Shea Selsor is a solid prospect. He was selected to the 2007 All-Ohio Division II Second Team. He has good size (6'4, 239) and speed as evidenced by his 2006 Football Highlights Film which is available on the Web. Columbia has some good talent coming in on the defensive line.
