Ohio State recruiting: 2015 LB Anthony McKee talks visit

Find out how Anthony McKee's Saturday visit to Ohio State went plus much more.

As most of Buckeye Nation knows by now, Urban Meyer and the Ohio State football squad had a number a prospects in town to visit campus, check out the facilities and watch Meyer and his assistants get the Buckeyes ready for next month's spring game over the last week.

Walnut Ridge soon to be senior linebacker Anthony McKee once again made the short trip to OSU on Saturday after recently visiting programs such as Indiana, Kentucky and Purdue. While at Ohio State, Anthony had the opportunity to break bread with members of the Buckeye coaching staff. "I talked to a lot of the coaches but Coach Fickell mainly." McKee told Land-Grant Holy Land. "He (Fickell) mainly told me about the way they do things (at OSU)."

McKee, a four-star prospect, proved on the field last season that he is not just a top player in the Columbus area, but the entire state, accounting for over 100 tackles as a junior for the Scots, earning an All-Ohio selection.

After signing his now former teammate and friend, Robert Bowers in February, Michigan State finally offered McKee last week. The Spartans aren't his only offer as Arkansas, Tennessee, West Virginia, Indiana, Illinois, Cincinnati, Rutgers and many others have also sent the 6'2 190 pound standout a scholarship invitation during the recruiting process.

McKee would love the add the Bucks to that list, but knows that even if it doesn't happen that his work is just getting started. "Being from Columbus and to get an offer (from OSU) would be good for me, but no matter what, I got to keep getting better and keep going hard to make my game better for the next level."
