Possibly one of the best kept secrets in the nation resides in Miami....Ohio that is. The school responsible for Travis Prentice is presently developing its' best pro-prospect to date.

Full Name:    Ben Roethlisberger       School:      Miami-Oh

Ht:    6-5                   Wt:   210               40:    4.95

Year:   3So             Number:      7

Scouting Report:  

The Good: Big armed pocket passer with the abilities to make plays in or out of the pocket.  Poised under pressure, looks off the safety and takes what the defense gives him.  Possesses a terrific pump fake, drives his long passes down the field and smartly places his deep throws in front of the target, letting receivers run to the ball.  Gets outside the pocket, makes plays on the move and loses nothing on his throws displaying zip on the short passes or driving the deep tosses while on the run.  In complete control of the offense in every sense of the word and a true leader that makes good decisions and does not put his team in a bad spot.  

The Bad: Needs to improve his footwork, release and does not throw the tightest spirals. 

The Skinny:  A young signal caller with a tremendous amount of upside potential as he matures both physically and mentally.  Great prospect for the future.
