Ohio State recruiting: 2015 OL Branden Bowen enjoys visit, will announce plans soon

Could Bowen be the next commitment for the Buckeyes?

The Buckeyes picked up a verbal commitment from four-star athlete Torrance Gibson on Monday afternoon, and might not be done adding talented prospects to the class of 2015 this month.

Over the weekend, massive 6'7 330 pound offensive tackle Branden Bowen was one of the senior prospects on campus for an official visit, where he didn't just have the opportunity to watch the Buckeyes blowout win over Illinois, but also get more familiar with the OSU staff, and program in general.

"My visit was unbelieveable. My favorite things I saw was the game day experience. There is so much tradition, and I love it all," Bowen, a three-star prospect stated to Land-Grant Holy Land soon after ending his trip on Monday.

"I also saw that the team is like family, and that is one of the top things I am looking for in a college. I was very impressed with the facilities as well."

While on his trip, Bowen had plenty of time to talk with Urban Meyer, offensive line coach Ed Warinner, and members of the current Ohio State team, who all made him feel very comfortable during his time on the OSU campus.

"I had the chance to speak with Coach Warinner and Meyer mostly. They told me that they are in need for tackles, and that if I come in, and work my hardest that I can get into the two deep, and see playing time as a true freshman," said Bowen.

"I also talked to Taylor Decker, who only had good things to say about both coaches and the program as a whole."

The current Utah commit is looking to finalize his college plans within the next couple of weeks. A verbal commit to the Utes since the summer, Branden's latest visit to Columbus has definitely made his decision a little bit harder.

"I'm looking to fully commit within two or three weeks. This visit has really opened my eyes to what they have to offer. I was truly shocked from everything I have seen and learned about the the Ohio State University."
