2012 Media Guide: Devan is yet another punishing Glenville High School defensive back who could have gone almost anywhere and yet he chose the Buckeyes … called by some recruiting analysts as the
hardest-hitter among an Ohio senior class full of big-hitting safeties, Bogard is the latest in an impressive line of Tarblooder DBs – and players – to end up at Ohio State, a list that includes NFL DBs Donte Whitner and Jermale Hines and current Buckeye Christian Bryant, and also includes 2006 Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith and NFL receiver/return man Ted Ginn Jr.
High School: Bogard was a first-team Division I all-state selection by the Associated Press after a 91-tackle-two-interception senior season for coach Ted Ginn … named special mention all-state as a junior after recording 74 tackles and an interception … was considered the No. 1 safety in Ohio in 2011 by Bill Kurelic and garnered national rankings of No. 14 by Rivals.com, No. 24 by Scout.com – both sites had Bogard projected as a four-star prospect – and No. 32 by ESPNU … ranked as the No. 6 senior in the state by 247Sports and No. 21 by Scout.com.
