It's been a busy few weeks for Indianapolis Decatur quarterback Tommy Stevens, and if it's likely to get even busier for the fast-rising 2015 prospect. Today, he and his family made a visit to Ohio State as they prepare for a recruiting road trip that will include stops at Vanderbilt, Michigan State and Penn State in the next ten days.

"It was awesome, a '10,' no doubt," Stevens said of his initial visit to Columbus. "Everything about it was great. We got on campus around 10 a.m. this morning and toured the football complex. After that, we checked out the academic center and toured the stadium. After lunch we checked out spring practice and took in a team meeting."

For Stevens, who picked up a scholarship offer from Nebraska during his Buckeye visit, the chance to hang out with Ohio State's Tom Herman was the highlight of the trip.

"I spent much of the day with Coach Herman," he said. "He's an awesome guy and I really like the way he coached the team."

While Ohio State didn't offer, he a talented player who could be on track to get the call from Urban Meyer. As is the usual for Ohio State and their quarterback search, they will not make a decision until they get to see Stevens throw in person, which they hope to do sometime in April.

"We got a chance to sit down with 'the man,' Coach Meyer," he added. "He said when I throw for them we should be in good shape (for an offer.) He said I am a player that they want."
