Ohio State recruiting: 2014 WR Corey Lacanaria talks preferred walk-on offer

Class of 2014 Michigan wideout Corey Lacanaria was recently offered a chance to walk-on to the Ohio State football team. See what the under the radar prospect had to say about the offer and more.

With most Ohio State fans sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to find out which prospect will join recent commits Stephen Collier, Terry McLaurin, Jamarco Jones and the rest of the Dream '14 as future Buckeyes, you might have missed the preferred walk-on offer the staff sent out to under the radar wide receiver Corey Lacanaria. Standing only 5-8 and 170 pounds, the small but speedy Lacanaria, has been one of the main reasons his Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Brother Rice squad has won back-to-back state titles. Last season as a junior, he accounted for over 770 yards on 50 receptions for the Warriors, scoring four touchdowns.

I had the opportunity to catch up with Corey for a few moments and asked him how it feels to have a chance to suit up in the scarlet and gray:

"It feels amazing, although I'm not really close to deciding where I want to go to college yet. It's a good feeling that OSU will be one of the ones I choose between. Coach Coombs told me about the preferred walk-on spot. He said I could definitely be able to play on the team. I haven't been on an official or unofficial visit, but the facilities seem top notch. I do plan on visiting Ohio State after my senior football season."

The Buckeyes aren't the only team trying to add Lacanaria's talents; programs like Northwood, Findlay, Valparaiso, Notre Dame College and Butler have all offered him a chance to play for their school while most of the MAC including Ball State have been showing major interest and could end up being his first division one scholarship offer. Cass Tech defensive coordinator Jermain Crowell, who coaches current Ohio State commit Damon Webb took to Twitter recently to let coaches know they need to step their games up before they miss out on a real gem:
