Ohio State recruiting: 2016 OL Tommy Kraemer talks visit, offer

Earlier this month, the Buckeyes offered class of 2016 offensive lineman Tommy Kraemer during a visit to campus. See what the Cincinnati Elder standout had to say about the trip to Columbus, his thoughts on having a chance to suit up for Ohio State and more.

Recruiting doesn't have an off season. Coaches always have to be on their toes, trying to lock down the best of the best at all times. The Ohio State class of 2015 is off to a decent start, and with the Bucks currently sitting pretty with many of the main prospects on their board, the class should rank among the top in the country once again when National Signing Day comes rolling around next February.

Just because Urban Meyer and staff are knee deep in trying to bring a rock solid group of 2015 athletes to Columbus doesn't mean they are slacking on the underclassmen.

Over the last few weeks, the Buckeyes have had many visitors from both the 2016 and 2017 classes, including Cincinnati Elder sophomore offensive lineman Tommy Kraemer.

"I was going to visit the for the spring game, but I decided to go up on the third instead." The 6'5 305 pound, Kraemer told Land-Grant Holy Land. "The spring practice was awesome. It was really cool to see the coaches run around and get after it as hard as the players were." He added on his experience at OSU earlier this month.

While having a chance to sit in on Buckeye assistant Ed Warinner coaching up his unit, Kraemer was pulled away with some news that he will remember for the rest of his life.

"Coach Meyer pulled me in during offensive line meetings and we talked for awhile and he gave me an offer." Kraemer said. "I can't explain how pumped I am that I received a scholarship from a school with so much history, tradition and success."

Urban Meyer wasn't the only coach that had some positive feedback for Tommy during his stop in the Capital city.

"I spoke with Coach Meyer, Coach Coombs and Coach Warinner. They all basically told me that I'm a high priority for them, and that they are really going to come after me hard these next few years."

Tommy, the son of former Vanderbilt lineman Mike Kraemer, also holds scholarship offers from Cincinnati, Illinois and Kentucky. With tons of time and certainly more full rides to come, the soon to be junior standout is in no rush to end his recruitment until he finds the right place for him.

"I'll end my recruitment when I'm 100% sure that I want to attend a certain school." Kraemer said. "I'm looking for a good fit academically, and a good relationship with both the line and head coach."

Definitely a prospect to keep an eye on, check out these highlights of Tommy Kraemer in action:
