Last Saturday's matchup between the Buckeyes and the Virginia Tech Hokies brought out quite a few football and basketball prospects to the Ohio State campus for official and unofficial visits. While the list of recruits visiting this weekend for the game against Kent State might not be as long, there will still be a solid group of high school talent checking out what the Bucks have to offer.
One of the local recruits making a short round trip to OSU is class of 2016 defensive back Austin Andrews of DeSales High School in Columbus.
"This weekend I'm looking forward to seeing the excitement and how well the people treat each other, and the love for the game the coaches, and players have," the junior stated to Land-Grant Holy Land as a few things he is anxious to see while roaming the sidelines of the Horseshoe on Saturday afternoon.
Andrews, who stands 6'1 and 180 pounds, has already earned an offer from Ohio University. Even though he has yet to receive an offer from Urban Meyer and the Ohio State coaching staff just yet, it is something he hopes will happen sometime during the recruiting process.
"A offer from OSU would mean a lot. I've always dreamed of playing in the 'Shoe, and alongside greats. It would be huge. When I think of OSU, I think of winning, and smiles, and excitement of fans. I think of big plays, and great defenses. I think of a lot." Austin said.
The Bobcats, and Buckeyes aren't the only teams taking a hard look at Andrews. Purdue, Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Flordia State, Boston College, Kent State, Northwestern, Illinois and Miami (OH) have all showed recent interest in the Central, Ohio standout.
