The Buckeyes offered three-star defensive tackle Quay Picou on Friday. See what the one time Ohio native had to say about the offer, where OSU sits on his short list, and more.

Always looking to bring in top talent, the Ohio State recruiting weekend started off with a bang when the staff dished out not just one, but an incredible five scholarship offers on Friday. Quay Picou, a three-star recruit out of Buford, Georgia's Buford High, became the latest class of 2015 defensive lineman to receive a chance to play for the Buckeyes.

Picou, who grew up in Cincinnati and attended Moeller High School as a freshman until his mother was offered a job she could not turn down, shared exactly what the offer from Ohio State meant to him.

"Coach (Tom) Herman offered me. They are recruiting me as both a defensive end and defensive tackle." Quay told Land-Grant Holy Land. "It's a dream come true to receive an offer from a top notch program such as The Ohio State University. When I think of OSU, I think of tradition. I'm an Ohio native, so this is huge for me."

The 6'3, 260-pound three-star prospect has plans to return to the Buckeye State in the coming months, and could find himself on the OSU campus if time allows it.

"I'm visiting family during Fourth of July weekend. So hopefully I can take a visit to OSU during that time," he added.

With well over a dozen full ride scholarship offers currently under his belt, Picou, who helped lead Buford to their second straight AAA Georgia state title last season, is starting to trim his list down and hopes to make his college choice known in the coming months.

"Ohio State is number one on my list. The Miami Hurricanes are second, Cincinnati is third, and Texas A&M is fourth," Quay stated as the programs he has at the top of his short list.

"I believe maybe after spring football is over or during the summer is when I'll pull the plug. I'm looking for great academics and just a school that will help me to the best of their ability to graduate."
