IT sounds like you may be out of the reasonable commute distance for drilling as a reservist. Your recruiter will be able to tell you more. DEPOT is a possibility but keep in mind, you will probably still have to attend an IT "A" school depending on a few factors.
Another issue is the rate needs to be available. If there are no IT openings in Cleveland then you cannot be assigned to the unit.
Best bet is to contact a recruiter in your area, you will not be wasting there time as that is our job!
I wish you the best!
