Ohio State played host to several prospects over the weekend and one of the biggest 2015 targets in attendance was New Jersey quarterback Brandon Wimbush. A four-star, Wimbush holds a slew of offers from Miami (FL), Rutgers, Penn State, Virginia and of course the Buckeyes, to name a few.
For offensive prospects, there couldn't have been a better game to attend as Ohio State pummeled the Nittany Lions to a score of 63-14. "Everything was great. It was huge and I will never forget that feeling of 107,000 being able to watch the team play. I loved it all and the fan support was awesome."
While the game was filled with highlight reel plays on both sides of the ball, it was only half the fun for Wimbush and his favorite part was what went on in the locker room after the game. "I would have to say [my favorite moment was] after the win, how they all got together in the locker room and prayed and enjoyed the win together and I was able to talk to Braxton for a quick second." Braxton wasn't the only guy the 6'2" dual-threat was able to talk to on the trip, coach Meyer was very much involved as well. "I had a meeting with him this morning and he had great things to tell me. I'll say all of it was really appealing for me and my parents so that was very good. He had a lot to say about life after football which is always important."
Though Wimbush doesn't have a set list of top teams, he said the Buckeyes would be very high if he had one. This process should be a long one as Brandon Wimbush expects to take his time with his decision. He doesn't have a set date for his next visit to Columbus, but would love to make it out again in the springtime or even over the summer. Brandon Wimbush has positioned himself in a great position with the coaching staff and Ohio State has as good a chance as anyone to land one of New Jersey's finest.
