Just like his Loveland High School teammates Drew Plitt and Jake Saunders did on Tuesday, class of 2015 offensive lineman Ian Leever made his way to the Ohio State campus for an unofficial visit yesterday.
"The trip was great." Leever, a three-star prospect, told Land-Grant Holy Land of his stop at OSU. "I was very impressed with their facilities and the interest they showed in me," he went on to add.
Leever, who will check out the University of Kentucky later today, has spent most of his Spring Break on the road. He made visits to Michigan State on Tuesday and to both Eastern Michigan and Michigan on Wednesday, before he had the chance to interact with numerous members of the Buckeye coaching staff, including Urban Meyer on Thursday.
"I talked to Coach Kerry Coombs, Coach Urban Meyer and Coach Ed Warinner. They said they loved my film and that they were impressed." That isn't the only thing the staff shared with the 6'5 280-pound standout. "They want to see me back in camp to see me work," Leever said. "They talked about wanting me to come to camp and see me in action in order to get an offer. They said they are not ready to offer yet though. I will be at the spring game and will camp there this summer."
Just days ago, Ian, who currently holds scholarship offers from programs such as Akron, Cincinnati, Eastern Michigan, Middle Tennessee State, Kent State and Toledo, to name a few, shared with Land-Grant Holy Land exactly what a scholarship from OSU would mean to him.
"An offer from the Buckeyes would be huge. It is the biggest school in our area of the country and they play some great football up there in Columbus."
Fresh off helping block Loveland (15-0) to nearly 4,000 total rushing yards and the Division II State Championship over future Buckeyes Marcelys Jones, Erick Smith, Marshon Lattimore and Glenville,as a junior, Leever, would like to end his recruitment before his senior season kicks off. With plans to graduate from high school in December so he is able to gain a jump start on his college career, Ian is looking for a few things before he gives a school his pledge.
"I am looking for a great program that has a lot of heart," He said. "I want a team where there is a brotherhood."
