Ohio State recruiting: 2015 OL Kieffer Longson talks offer, Buckeyes

Student Sports

Ohio State recently offered class of 2015 offensive lineman Kieffer Longson. See what the four star prospect had to say about the offer and more.

With no football game this weekend, the Ohio State coaching staff turned their focus to recruiting and reaching out to potential future Buckeyes. Urban Meyer joined in on the fun, checking in on numerous Ohio State targets and commits. With most of his assistant coaches spread out across the United States getting in contact with top targets, it really shouldn't be much of a surprise that a few scholarship offers were handed out along the way.

One prospect who received his chance to play for the Buckeyes was class of 2015 offensive lineman Kieffer Longson. Land-Grant Holy Land had a few moments of the 6-7 290 pound Longson's time and asked him how the offer went down and how it feels to the have the chance to play for a history rich program like Ohio State:

"I found out about the offer through my dad. They just said your kid is a kid I want to coach, so they offered me. My dad talked to offensive line coach Ed Warinner. I'm really excited about it. I would love to play under Urban Meyer. I think Ohio State is a national powerhouse that has great coaches, [offers] a great education and a chance to win the national championship every year. I plan on visiting them in the spring or summer."

The Buckeyes were the first major program to offer the San Ramon, California native, but was soon followed by Jimbo Fisher and Florida State. OSU and FSU might be the only two at the party, but plenty of others are scoping out the scene. California, Colorado, Ole Miss, Oregon, San Jose State, Tennessee, Utah State,USC, Washington and Wisconsin are all showing the four star prospect plenty of love and could send a scholarship offer of their own out to Longson at anytime.

Kieffer, a Dougherty Valley High junior, is currently rated the 233rd best player in the entire 2015 recruiting class and 28th best overall offensive tackle, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
