The Ohio State coaching staff didn't just play host to a small army of eager women football players Saturday, but also a couple of recruits as well. One of those prospects was Indianapolis, Indiana native and Cathedral star wide receiver Terry McLaurin. The 6-0 190 pounder racked up 820 receiving yards on 33 receptions for 12 touchdowns last season as a junior. McLaurin also showed he was a big time threat on special teams by returning two punts to pay dirt. All his work didn't go unnoticed; programs such as Purdue, Missouri, Boston College, Cincinnati and quite a few others all sent full ride scholarship offers his way.
"It went well," McLaurin told Land-Grant Holy Land of his Saturday visit to Ohio State."I appreciated [Ohio State's] coaches' honesty and being upfront with me from the start." Terry didn't leave off there, further elaborating on how much he respected the entirety of the Buckeye program ."They have such a vision, it's unreal. The whole organization and effectiveness they try to achieve every day is nice to see, and I didn't even see a [practice]," he added.
Terry is hoping to add Ohio State to his growing list of offers and met with the guys who have the power to make that happen. "I talked to Coach Coombs, Coach Meyer and Coach Smith," he said. "They told me as long as I do what I do and compete at a high level, I'll be fine. I wouldn't be here if I couldn't get the job done."
Even though he seems to be pretty hot on home state Purdue and the SEC's Missouri Tigers right now, a Buckeye offer could definitely shake things up in a hurry. "If [Ohio State] were to offer, it would mean a lot coming from a university and a coaching staff of such prestige," McLaurin said. "After enjoying a great [visit], I would definitely put them up in high consideration."
