Ohio State continued its run of offering offensive lineman in the 2015 class earlier today when they extended a scholarship offer to Jacksonville (IL) offense tackle Gabe Megginson.
The 6'5, 295-pound tackle holds scholarship offers from almost every school in the Big Ten with the headliners being Wisconsin, who is probably the team to beat right now, Michigan State, Penn State, and the Buckeyes. He also has offers from Ole Miss, Missouri, and many other division one schools.
He received his offer from the Buckeyes today when he was told to call new Ohio State co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash, who is his main recruiter right now.
"My head coach told me to call Coach (Chris) Ash," Megginson said. "I called and that's when he offered me."
Megginson was very excited to receive an offer from one of the top schools in the nation and is very interested in the Buckeyes at this point in his recruitment.
"I am very interested," Megginson stated. "I love the success, I love the facilities, the coaches, and the swagger they bring to the field. I really love it all."
The standout offensive tackle has already made one trip to Columbus in order to participate in Ohio State's Friday Night Lights camp held every July and plans to be back soon.
"I went to the Friday Night Lights camp this summer and I will be back soon," he said. "The intensity of the coaches and the competition was great, the way they coached really taught me a lot."
As of now he plans on making an early college decision, but there are no schools that stand out to him as his recruitment currently stands.
"I hope to make my decision at the end of May," he continued. "(There) are no true standouts right now."
It appears the Buckeyes will be a real player in the race for the standout Midwestern offensive lineman. Right now I think Wisconsin has the best chance to land his commitment, but another good visit to Ohio State and you never know what can happen.
