The Buckeyes are always looking towards the future. On Saturday, possibly the top sophomore offensive lineman in the state of Ohio checked out what Ohio State has to offer up close and personal.

Making the trip to Columbus from Portsmouth, class of 2018 prospect Blaine Scott was one of the recruits to take in the Buckeyes' less-than-stellar victory over the feisty Northern Illinois Huskies.

"My OSU game visit was awesome," the 6'5, 300-pounder told Land-Grant Holy Land. "It was my first one so it was pretty amazing. The atmosphere was unreal. Overall it was a great. I had a blast," added Scott.

Not only did Scott have the chance to watch the top ranked Buckeyes in action, he also chatted with Buckeye assistant coach Ed Warinner.

"I got the opportunity to talk to coach Warinner for a few minutes. He just spoke to me about how myself and my season was going," Scott said.

Still more than two years away from suiting up on the college level, Scott currently holds scholarship offers from the likes of Ohio, Kent State, and Toledo. If Ohio State decides to join his growing list of offers it would give Blaine the chance to once again line up with his former Sciotoville High School teammate and current 2016 Buckeye pledge Tyler Gerald.

"A Buckeye offer would mean everything to me. All the work and time I have put in would finally pay off. Growing up in Ohio as a Buckeye fan that would be awesome. I would love to suit up with Gerald again. He's a very close buddy of mine and I would love the chance to play with him."

Quick Hits

  • On Friday, Ohio State class of 2016 pledge Malik Barrow of IMG Academy (FL) signed his midyear financial aid agreement with the Buckeyes. Barrow, a four-star defensive lineman who is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, is the fourth future Buckeye to do so, joining Tuf Borland, Austin Mack, and Jonathon Cooper.
