Urban Meyer and his coaching staff landed several speedsters that could fit in at either running back or wide receiver in the 2014 recruiting class in the likes of Curtis Samuel, Parris Campbell, Noah Brown, and Terry McLaurin.
The best story of the bunch might just be McLaurin's, as he camped at Ohio State not once, but twice this summer in order to earn the Buckeye offer he had coveted throughout his recruitment. He landed the offer hours after his second camp performance and committed to Urban Meyer almost immediately after receiving the offer to play his college football in Columbus.
During his senior season for Indianapolis Cathedral, the future Buckeye wide receiver caught 58 passes for 953 yards and 8 scores. In addition to that, he ran the ball 77 times for 750 yards and 6 touchdowns, while adding two kickoff return touchdowns. He concluded his stellar high school football career by leading his team to a 42-18 victory over Westfield in the Class 5A State Championship game.
Now that his high school football career is over and he's less than four months away from enrolling in college classes, the standout wide receiver has his sights set on arriving in Columbus and is working hard on the field and in the classroom in order to get ready for the college experience.
McLaurin was at the Best of the Midwest combine yesterday in order to help lesser known prospects earn the college offers they covet most, just like he did last summer.
