GonzagaTDClub.Org

Ohio State offered four star class of 2015 offensive lineman Richie Petitbon earlier this week. See what the Washington D.C. native had to say about what it means to have a chance to suit up for the Bucks and more.

With no game this weekend, the Ohio State football staff were on the road this week recruiting future Buckeye All-Americans. Wide receivers coach Zach Smith spent some time in the Washington,DC area, checking in on a number of prospects. Class of 2015 Gonzaga College High School, offensive lineman Richie Petitbon just happened to be one. The visit ended being one, the four star junior will probably never forget. "Coach Smith from Ohio State came to my school Thursday and told me to give him a call and when I called him, he offered me a scholarship," Petitbon told Land-Grant Holy Land. "I was very excited. To be offered by such a great program with such a great rich history is really amazing," he added.

The Buckeyes join Alabama, LSU, Penn State, Florida State, Maryland and Clemson as a few of the many BCS level schools to offer the 6-4 290 pound lineman. Even with all those storied programs after him, Petitbon, the grandson of longtime NFL player and coach of the same namesake, isn't taking the OSU offer lightly. "I'm really excited to have a chance to play for Ohio State and such a great coach like Urban Meyer," Richie said. "I'm really looking forward to talking to him soon. When I think of Ohio State football I think of Championships and great football tradition. I am so excited to have an opportunity to play for such a great program."

The recently updated 247Sports class of 2015 rankings have Petitbon currently as the 205th best player in the class, 10th best offensive guard and the top overall prospect in the entire Washington D.C. area.
