We’ve arrived at the part where 2018 prospects who are destined for the D-II, NAIA, and D-III level especially will start finding their college fit. By our count, there’s somewhere between six and fifteen D-I prospects available across the state, and not too many more D-II ones.

For the large number of small college prospects who remained unsigned going into postseason play, their new home won’t be far from where they grew up. So, we’ll divide our week-long series of Best Available lists by city.

This list is crafted for schools like Cincinnati Christian, Mount St. Joseph, Wilmington and several others to find sleepers and available players at each position in Cincinnati. Players are listed with the best available at the top.
