I spoke to Bolingbrook (IL) CB Parrker Westphal, who visited Ohio State for the first time this past Saturday. Here's what he had to say:

  • Only a visit. Didn't camp.
  • Visit: "It was great. I went to the football offices, where I saw the facilities, trophies, and got to meet with the coaches. I also took a tour of the campus, where I saw the academic side. I saw Buckeye Grove too."
  • Coaches: "I spoke with Coach Coombs the most. He told me they really wanted me, and wants to build a relationship with me."
  • Next visit: "I'm not sure, but I'll be back for a game."
  • Other visits: "I just visited Notre Dame, it was ok. Next, I'm probably going to visit Florida, and West Virginia."
  • No leaders
  • No timetable
  • Factors: "The academic standards, graduation rate, coaching, coaching stability, and the chance to play for nation titles."
  • Goal: To improve at corner, and provide his quarterback, and Illinois commit, Aaron Bailey, an additional weapon on offense.

I definitely think Westphal is interested in the Buckeyes. He holds offers from many top Midwestern programs including Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, West Virginia, and a couple of others. The only SEC school who has extended Westphal an offer is Florida. This is definitely shaping up to be a big Midwestern battle for rising 2014 CB, Parrker Westphal.

I'm liking his comments about his OSU visit, "it was great" versus his comments about his Notre Dame visit, "it was okay".

I think Michigan might be the team to beat, but good that we made an impression early.

Yeah, I would say Michigan holds a slight lead right now. A lot of time though.

Really? Parrker with 2 Rs? Ridiculous name.

I prefer Sprinkle, Aldolphus, and Frank EpitropoWhateverhisnameis.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

Because Braxton is a totally normal name

I like Parrker, but I'll be okay with OSU getting him if we get Jabrill Peppers.  Ideally, we'll get both (not going to happen).

Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!
