A product of Lakota East, 2014 offensive guard Jarrett LaRubbio made the trek from Middletown to Columbus to watch the Buckeyes' second spring practice of 2013. LaRubbio is listed at 6'5", 260 pounds and holds offers from Pittsburgh, Akron, Arizona State, Bowling Green, Duke, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Nebraska, Ohio, and Toledo.

Wednesday, NJ.com provided impressions from recruits who were on Rutgers' campus Tuesday for unofficial visits. Manalapan (N.J.) wide receiver, Saeed Blacknall, was arguably the most sought-after recruit in attendance. Find out the full gamut of his feelings about the Scarlet Knights after his latest visit to the Rutgers campus.
"Today was a great day at Rutgers," Blacknall told NJ.com Tuesday evening. "I got to meet the new staff members, coach Prince and Wilson. They explained to me how I was going to fit in at Rutgers."
According to Blacknall, he found out Tuesday that there was another side to the Rutgers program that he knew little about, previously.
"Today was a different type of visit that gave me a deeper insight into Rutgers football, and made me understand the mission Rutgers is trying to accomplish," he said.
La Salle WR Derek Kief taking recruiting journey in stride despite 16 scholarship offers (cincinnati)
La Salle junior wide receiver Derek Kief was surprised with the arrival of three scholarship offers all on the same day this week.
But, while he is genuinely pleased with the additional offers, he is still keeping his recruiting journey in perspective.
Kief was called out of English class March 7 and spoke with Alabama head coach Nick Saban for about 25 minutes on the phone near lunch time. Alabama became Kief’s 14th offer and Saban extolled the aspects of the Crimson Tide program, Kief said.
Alabama, which had been showing interest the past few weeks, was one of three offers Kief received March 7. West Virginia and Wisconsin followed up later that night bringing Kief’s total offer count to 16 before this weekend.
Kief, who is 6 feet 5 and 190 pounds, also has offers from UC, Ohio State, Vanderbilt, Ohio University, Maryland, Bowling Green, Kent State, Kentucky, Northwestern, Boston College, Indiana, Illinois and Toledo.
