Ohio State recruiting: 2015 OL Grant Newsome talks offer

247Sports

Ohio State recently offered class of 2015 offensive tackle Grant Newsome. See what the four star prospect had to say about it.

Already having Marcelys Jones and Kyle Trout on campus as early enrollees, Ohio State offensive line coach Ed Warinner probably resembled a kid on Christmas morning when the paperwork for Demetrius KnoxJamarco Jones and Brady Taylor came rolling through the fax machine earlier this month.

Adding five standouts in the class of 2014 definitely has the offensive line depth chart looking very promising for years to come, but that doesn't mean that Urban Meyer, Warinner and the rest of the coaching staff are done trying to add bodies up front.

In just the last few weeks alone, Ohio State has offered a number of the top offensive line prospects in the country, including Tyler JordanConner DyerPatrick AllenLuke Hiers and Gabe Megginson. Another class of 2015 lineman to receive a scholarship offer from the Bucks was Grant Newsome.

After being in touch with Coach Warinner for quite awhile, Newsome, the 25th highest rated tackle and 235th overall player in his class according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, was let known by his Lawrenceville School (NJ) head coach Danny O'Dea about the OSU offer after he talked with the Buckeye assistant on the telephone.

"It's a great feeling to be offered by such a prestigious program such as Ohio State." Newsome, who currently holds a long list of offers that includes Michigan, North Carolina, Penn State, Rutgers, Northwestern, Duke and Virginia told Land-Grant Holy Land of his chance to play for the Buckeyes. "Their football program has a history of winning, and that is something I'm sure is just going to continue on under Coach Meyer." He added.

The 6'7 280-pound Newsome has visited a number of college campuses during the recruiting process and if things work out could soon be making a stop at Ohio State. "I don't have any set plans to come up to Columbus, but I'm definitely going to try to make it up during the spring or at worst the summer." Grant said. "It all just depends on my schedule and my parents availability."
