Darius Fullwood plans to visit Ohio State in June, make college decision soon after

Standout defensive end Darius Fullwood will visit Ohio State next month and could make a college decision shortly after.

I will have much more on his recruitment later this weekend, but wanted to drop a quick Ohio State related update on Olney (MD) Good Counsel defensive end Darius Fullwood before heading into the weekend.

The standout defensive end has a top five of Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Miami, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech, with Boston College, Michigan State, and a couple of other schools still in the running for his commitment. It is important to note that his top five in not in order. He had the Buckeyes at the top of his list after visiting at the end of March.

Originally he was planning on making his college commitment sometime this month, but his timetable has been moved back by about a month.

"I'm looking to make it before June is over," Fullwood stated. "I don't have an exact date, but in the next few weeks I'm going to work on finding a place (to announce) and setting a date."

Fullwood knows that he'll be visiting Ohio State in June for a one day camp. The dates for the camps are June 8th, 19th, and 21st and he'll know the exact date in the near future.

"I will be up at Ohio State again this summer. I'm going to one of their one day camps," he continued. "I think I'm visiting Kentucky, Virginia Tech, Michigan State, and Boston College. The only one that is set for sure is Ohio State, but I definitely want to get out to a few schools again before I make my decision."

There are a lot of things he likes about Ohio State, but the thing he likes most might be the opportunity to play for Buckeye defensive line coach Larry Johnson, whom he has known for quite some time.

"It's a great fit for me. The campus is beautiful and Coach (Larry) Johnson is one of the coaches who I think can take me to the next level. He's one of the best coaches in the nation. I like his coaching style and how he rotates people in. The best players get on the field and he makes sure he gets a good solid rotation of 8-9 guys in throughout the game. It's a great fit," Fullwood said. "Then because it's Ohio State. You're going to play some of the best competition you'll ever see if you play there."

Another thing of note is that Penn State is full at defensive end right now, but Fullwood continues to talk with the Nittany Lions because "you never know what can happen."

More to come on Fullwood's situation soon.
