Posey takes the State Title in the 400m

Cincinnati Ohio LaSalle senior Devier Posey won the state title in the 400 meters and came in fourth in the 100 meters and the 200 meters. It was the last time Posey will compete in the 400 meters as he plans to play wide receiver exclusively at Ohio State in the fall.

Big Receiver with Speed

            Posey at 6'3" and 190lbs has been known more as a possession receiver who can catch the higher thrown balls from Terrelle Pryor in the end zone or for shorter gains when a first down is needed. But his performance coming from behind to win the 400 meters has changed people’s minds about him. Maybe he’s the long out route runner similar Ted Ginn Jr making the big play outrunning slower defensive backs on the outside.

    This incoming class or Posey, Jake Stoneburner, and Lamaar Thomas should be electrifying over the next three to fours years at Ohio State.

Jim Tressel

    Ohio State Head Coach Jim Tressel was asked after the competion his impression of Posey. “DeVier is not just an outstanding football player but a talented athlete in many disciplines; not just his speed but the dedication he has shown toward track will be of great help to him in collegiate football,” Tressel was quoted by media on site. “He is a quality young man and we look forward to his arrival with the rest of our freshmen class on campus in a few weeks.”
