Ohio State recruiting: 2015 OL Josh Wariboko talks offer

Student Sports

See what the four-star prospect had to say about his recent offer from Ohio State, and more.

Four-star class of 2015 offensive lineman Josh Wariboko (Oklahoma City/ Casady School) already had a pretty good idea that Ohio State was going to offer him a scholarship, he just didn't know when the Buckeyes were going to finally break the news to him.

"Coach (Chris) Ash came by the school a few weeks ago and he told me they were going to offer. He (Ash) then called me Monday to follow up and offered 100% validly," the one time Oklahoma Sooner commit told Land-Grant Holy Land. Wariboko adds OSU to his list of well over a baker's dozen full ride scholarship offers from most of the perennial powerhouse programs in college football.

Coaches from Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, LSU, Nebraska, Texas A&M, UCLA and USC are just a few of the many actively trying to add Wariboko to their respective teams. Ohio State might be the new kid on the block when it comes to his recruitment, but the 6'3 330-pound junior is definitely intrigued to learn more about the Bucks.

"Since they've offered, I'm trying to gather all the info about the school and program I can to determine where they stand." Wariboko stated. "When I think of Ohio State, I think of the powerhouse of the north. They are a big offer for me."

After being committed to Bob Stoops and Oklahoma for nearly a year before deciding to open things back up last month, Josh is trying to take the recruiting process one day at a time now. At the moment, Wariboko is in the early stages of thinking over which teams he would like to visit this summer and exactly what he is searching for out of a program.

"I haven't made plans anywhere yet. I'm going to sit down with my family and discuss the schools that are recruiting me and my brother the hardest and go from there. In a school I'm looking for a great community with great people, excellent academics, a program that can develop me, and a place where my brother and I can go to college together." He said.

Josh isn't the only future FBS ball player in the family. His brother, Max, a 6'0 165-pound defensive back from the class of 2016, is starting to watch his recruitment take shape. While the Buckeyes have yet to send the younger Wariboko an offer, programs such as Louisville and Tulsa already have.

It is hard to tell at the moment what the future might hold for Wariboko and Ohio State, but there is one thing that is for certain. After signing five talented class of 2014 linemen, the Buckeyes are looking to add a few more big and physical bodies up front once again this recruiting cycle.

After you check out these highlights of Josh Wariboko in action, It shouldn't take you long to realize that he fits the mold:
