9 Jul , 2017  

Madison’s Tyrell Ajian is drawing attention as the beginning of the 2017 football season nears. This past week, in fact, he was included in “5 Kentucky freshman to watch in the 2017 season,” published by GridironNow.com.

In its short profile on the player, the site said, “Listed by the recruiting services as an athlete, Ajian is going to get a shot at safety, said his high school coach, Jamie Masi. Masi told the Mansfield News-Journal that Ajian is “the best I’ve ever coached, without a doubt,” and praised his “unbelievable ability to find the ball.”Listed by the recruiting services as an athlete, Ajian is going to get a shot at safety, said his high school coach, Jamie Masi.

As we shared in February, Ajian was a combination athlete at Madison, playing both defensive back and wide receiver who was ranked as a four star prospect by 247Sports, Rivals, and ESPN. Rivals ranked him as the number 10 overall prospect in Ohio, and ESPN pegged him as the number 8 safety in the country.

This past fall, he was first team OCC All-Conference and honorable mention second team All-Northwest Ohio. Ajian had three interceptions and 54 tackles as a junior, along with 783 receiving yards, 551 rushing yards, and 19 touchdowns.
