A friend and I have a Buckeye Facebook page for our friends and we just post info about recruting and things like that. He has a Bucknuts account and posts things from their website and I read something today that I figured I'd share.
** ‘Kwon Calls It? … An Ohio high school coach was on the field during warm-ups for the Ohio State-Penn State game Saturday night along with one of his players who was invited for an unofficial visit.
Suddenly, the coach realizes he’s standing next to Raekwon McMillian and strikes up a conversation with the five-star linebacker.
“Maybe I caught him in a moment of jubilation, but he told me, quote, ‘I’m definitely a Buckeye, man,’” the coach said. “He just had this glowing look about him and was saying how much he loves the place. He said, quote, ‘This is where I’ll be playing next year.’”
We heard from a different source Luke Fickell spent several hours before the game on Saturday rolling out the scarlet-carpet treatment for McMillan and his parents. It sure sounds like it worked.
I'm still a little skeptical that this actually happened. I believe he will be a Buckeye, but for him to say this to a complete stranger is a bit of a stretch. Also I tend to have more trust in the 11W staff than I do Bucknuts. Just thought I'd share this with you guys, truth or not, it's very interesting.
