Following the commitment quarterback Stephen Collier, most people thought Bossier City (LA) Parkway signal caller Brandon Harris was no longer in the picture for the Buckeyes. This is far from true, however.
"I knew Ohio State's thought process going into this. With my decision still being a month away and them not having a quarterback in this class they wanted to make sure they got one, especially because a lot of them have been committing recently," Harris said. "I am still strongly, and I really mean strongly, considering Ohio State. This will have no impact on my decision."
The Ohio State coaching staff made sure Harris knew about the situation before the masses found out.
"I knew this was going to happen all along. I was one of the first people to know about it this. Coach Meyer called me a few weeks ago to explain the situation," Harris continued. "They offered me and Kyle Allen first, then they offered Zack Darlington a chance to earn an offer. When Kyle decided to go to A&M and Zack went to Nebraska, the coaches didn't want to put all of their marbles in my basket. They said they're still going to recruiting me hard, very strongly."
While some quarterbacks may shy away from competition and decide not to go to a school because they already have a quarterback in their class, that is not the case with Harris.
Among the 800-plus campers showcasing their skills at Ohio State yesterday was Derrell Scott, one of the country's top tailbacks in the class of 2014. Scott has had a Buckeye offer for some time, and this trip to Ohio State was an important one for the Buckeyes hoping to make an impression on the Havelock (N.C.) native.
It appears that they did just that.
"It was great," Scott said of the visit to Columbus. "It was really great to get a feel for Coach (Stan) Drayton and how he coaches and things like that."
A player that one person close to the Buckeyes described as "a freak," Scott was impressive all morning at Ohio State, making himself almost impossible to stop in one-on-one drills with an uncanny ability to change directions and do it without losing his speed. Scott has been rumored to be a South Carolina and Florida State battle, but star tailback says that the Buckeyes are definitely still in the mix.
