You thought right. Another new name popping up is Austin Andrews. 6'1 180 pound two way star from Columbus, playing cornerback and running back. He camped at Ohio State on the 21st and this is what he had to say about an Ohio State offer.

"An offer from Ohio State would mean the world. I've dreamed about that since I was five. I grew up watching guys like Troy Smith and Terrelle Pryor. To play in the same stadium that those guys played in would be a huge accomplishment. I would have to commit on the spot if they offered me."

This kid isn't ranked yet, but once 247, Rivals and Scouts take a look at him, there's no doubt he will be a consensus 4 star. With his size (6'1 180), I believe he will play at Corner, and that's where he worked out at for Ohio State at camp. He was pulled out of the large group of defensive backs that worked out at camp, and got to work out privately for the coaches with group 5, the elite group.

305Buck if the '15 class ends up in the 16-20 commit range what are you projecting for the '16 class?

I'd say 20-22.

I believe Meyer will aim to take the full 25, but no less than 22.

As a New Albany Ohio resident and fan of the high school team, this kid playing for De sales (Rivals for those of you who aren't familiar with central Ohio high school) is not a fun thought, especially if he's as good as expected

He doesn't look very fast.

He ran a 4.5 when he camped at Ohio State.

This kid can ball. 6'1 180 as a sophomore!!!! He's only going to get better.  He'll be one of the better players in the state. I wonder if he's one of those kids thats been working out and training at D1? With in the last few weeks they have had 4 kids commit to D-1 programs, 2 of them Buckeyes with Liam McCullough and Nick Conner. Seem's like a lot of Central Ohio's top talent has been working out up there.
