"I'm most excited about competing at Friday Night Lights, seeing the coaches like Urban Meyer again, and potentially earning an offer from Ohio State."
- '14 QB Shelby Spence to Land-Grant Holy Land
With most Ohio State fans sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to find out which prospect will join recent commits Stephen Collier, Terry McLaurin, Jamarco Jones and the rest of the Dream '14 as future Buckeyes, you might have missed the preferred walk-on offer the staff sent out to under the radar wide receiver Corey Lacanaria. Standing only 5-8 and 170 pounds, the small but speedy Lacanaria, has been one of the main reasons his Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Brother Rice squad has won back-to-back state titles. Last season as a junior, he accounted for over 770 yards on 50 receptions for the Warriors, scoring four touchdowns.
I had the opportunity to catch up with Corey for a few moments and asked him how it feels to have a chance to suit up in the scarlet and gray:
Best of Elite 11- Day 1 (247Sports)
Stephen Collier, Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County- Collier rebounded from an up-and-down first session (per Dilfer) to have a very good afternoon workout. His arm strength, combined with his feet, quickness and athleticism, give him excellent potential. He is committed to Ohio State. Collier currently is ranked as the No. 18 dual-threat quarterback prospect in the 2014 class according to 247Sports.
Buckeyes tracking 2015 corner (Rivals)
The Ohio State coaching staff has been very active in the state of Tennessee recently and that certainly looks like it will continue in the class of 2015. One prospect that the Buckeyes are tracking is Nashville (Tenn.) Ezell Harding Christian product Elias Cane. The 5-foot-9, 165-pound corner holds six early offers and says four other programs are showing interest, including Ohio State.
"Right now I'm getting a lot of attention from Oregon, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and Ohio State," said Cane. "Those are the schools that are showing me some interest that haven't offered yet."
Cane had originally planned to camp with Ohio State last week but his transportation fell through, he is now hoping to make it to Columbus (Ohio) at some point in the fall.
