Ohio State kicked off what is expected to be a very big week for visitors with the team's first spring practice in almost two weeks.
Today they hosted three visitors in the form of Westerville (OH) South offensive lineman Rob Dowdy, his teammate Abu Daramy, and Indianapolis (IN) Decatur Central quarterback Tommy Stevens, who might have been the biggest visitor of the trio.
It was Stevens' first recruiting trip to Columbus and he really liked what he saw during his eight or so hours on the Ohio State campus today.
"We got there around 10. I toured the football complex, then to the academic center, and then we went to tour the stadium," Stevens told Land-Grant Holy Land. "After that we left and got lunch, then came back for meeting and practice."
Stevens got to spend time with Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Tom Herman while on campus. He really enjoyed his time with the two coaches.
"They (Meyer and Herman) treated me very well," Stevens stated. "(Meeting Urban Meyer) was surreal. He seemed like a great guy and a great coach also."
While the Buckeyes have yet to extend an offer Steven's way, it's definitely possible somewhere down the road. If the Scarlet and Gray did extend him a scholarship offer, it would mean a lot in his recruitment.
"(An offer) would mean a lot," Stevens said. "They just have to see me throw in person (before offering)."
He plans to visit Michigan State, who recently offered, Vanderbilt, and Penn State to round out the month of March.
If the Ohio State coaching staff wants to take two quarterbacks in this class- which I think they do, Stevens could be a very interesting candidate for that number two quarterback slot. He'll likely need to attend a camp this summer in order to receive an offer from the Buckeyes.
