Catching Up with Demarre Kitt: Ohio State Visit

Ohio State has gotten off to a strong start in adding offensive linemen and defenders to their 2014 recruiting class. But they are still lacking one thing in the class: Offensive playmakers.

Kitt is one of the top juniors in the nation

The Buckeyes hosted many top players on campus this past weekend. One of these elite players was Tyrone (GA) Sandy Creek wide receiver Demarre Kitt, who fits the bill of a playmaker on the offensive side of the ball.

At 6-2/180, Kitt boasts offers from the likes of Ohio State, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, USC, Wisconsin, and many other big-name schools.

Kitt took his third trip to Columbus to check out the Ohio State campus Thursday through Sunday of last week. He definitely enjoyed his trip and now has the Buckeyes as his sole leader.

We caught up with Kitt to learn more about what he saw on his visit, which players/recruits he hung out with, and more.

Keep reading to learn more about about one of Ohio State's top targets in the 2014 class, Demarre Kitt.

You visited Ohio State last week. What did you get to do and see on the visit?

I got there on Thursday. I went to their practice and got a chance to talk to the coaches after practice. Friday, I really just chilled and looked around the campus. On Saturday I went to the scrimmage, got to talk to the coaches again, and hung out with some of the players. Then I left to go home on Sunday.

Which coaches did you talk to? What were they telling you?

I mostly talked to Coach Smith and Coach Meyer. They were telling me that they really want me to be a Buckeye. They also said I would have a chance at early playing time.

What did Coach Meyer tell you this weekend? Did he mention how many receivers they can take?

I had a really good talk with Coach Meyer this weekend. He told me I was one of their top targets at wide receiver and that they could probably take up to three or four receivers in my class.

Which players did you hang out with? What did they tell you?

I hung out with Jamal Marcus, Devan Bogard, Noah Spence, and Najee Murray. The were telling me that if I want to play professionally, Ohio State is the place to go because they send a lot of guys to the NFL.

Which recruits did you hang out with? What did you guys talk about?

I mainly hung out with my teammate, Chris Williams, Damon Webb, and Jabrill Peppers. Damon committed to OSU a few months ago and Jabrill is still going on with the process like I am.

What do you like most about OSU?

The thing I like about Ohio State is they have everything I'm looking for in a school.

Who is you leader after last weekend's visit?

Ohio State is on top right now. After that it's Tennessee, then Clemson.

When would you like to make your college decision?

I'm not sure when. I don't have a set time to decide or anything. I'll probably just decide when it feels right.

What will be the biggest factors in your decision?

Education, depth chart, the quarterback, and my relationships with the coaches.

Yessir, excellent work Miles. 

I like the questions you've been asking lately, you're digging for a little more info, getting a little specific (asking Berger about "Alex"), keep it up!

He looks good and that QB on his team has an arm.

You beat me to it ZBD.  While Kitt made some spectacular catches.  QB made some good throws into tight coverage.  Reel them both in ha.

I would like Kitt (and NightRider) to suit up for the good guys.
Go get em Urbz!

After all of his tweets about wanting to commit last week but then holding off (and saying he just wants to commit when it feels right) I could see him committing to us next week or the week after if he still has us as the sole leader after visiting Tennessee. He could be the one to get the ball rolling on some of those GA recruits (including flipping Watson)!

Education, depth chart, the quarterback, and my relationships with the coaches.

I assume the part abour the QB is an allusion to Deshaun Watson.  If we end up with Watson, I imagine that will lock down just about every big-time offensive recruit we want from the south...or at least from the state of GA.

Totally agree, but is also like to add the fact that he said education before anything else first, is quite commendable. Props for education before all else!

If OSU has everything that he wants in a school, than it's gonna be pretty tough to beat us.

I've heard rumors that he's part of a "package deal" along with Kaboodle...

Demarre Kitt really looks like a good player.  He's got good height and athleticism.  Looks to have pretty good speed.  The only thing that I saw that concerned me a little was that he has a tendency to go backwards a little too much on the field.  He can get away with that now in high school because he is a better athlete, but in college he'll have to pick a lane and go.  That is something that can be worked on.  I like him a lot and hope that he does become a Buckeye!  I think he would make a great addition to the team. 
Go Bucks!

So far, Ginn is the only one allowed to do that at the college level.

Gone ham, be back soon...

Miles is killing it. Glad to still have you aboard.

Sounds reallllly good for OSU! I'm trying not to get too up about it though until he attends Tennessee's O&W spring game next weekend, as they're his current #2, and I'm sure that'll be a pretty good atmosphere with lots of TENN recruits and coaches in his ear. If he comes back from that visit and we're still #1, that'll be the point when I get really excited haha.

The staff should have Kitt hang around JT on his next visit. It's not set in stone that Watson is coming here.
