Cincinnati Elder 2016 Lineman Tommy Kraemer Talks Buckeye Offer

Cincinnati Elder 2016 offensive lineman Tommy Kraemer grew up rooting for Michigan, but a scholarship offer today from the Buckeyes carries a lot of weight.

"I'm super excited," Kraemer told Eleven Warriors following a midweek visit to Columbus today. "(Urban) Meyer pulled me in to his office and talked about how tough of a player I am and (told me) that I have a scholarship."

Kraemer's visit helped him get a better feel for what the Buckeyes have to offer.

"I really liked the coaching staff," he said of his visit. "They are so high intensity and they really get after it. They seem like the type of coaches that will always have your back."

A 6-foot-5, 305 pound tackle, Kraemer has scholarship offers previously from Cincinnati, Illinois, and Kentucky, but the Buckeyes offer is something that stands out from the pack. 


"This is huge for me, Ohio State is one of the top programs in the country," he added. "It just feels awesome to know all of the hard work has really paid off. Ohio State is definitely one of my top schools."

Ohio State hopes to get Kraemer back on campus soon, but he's not sure if he'll be able to make it for next weekend's spring game at The Horseshoe.

"I'm not sure yet, have to talk it over with my parents," he said of a possible trip on April 12th. "I'll definitely go to a couple games this season."

Tommy come visit the school and see what Ohio State has to offer.  Working with the best coaches and the best players around you can only make you better.  

I may not be the sharpest crayon in the box but I'm one of the most colorful.
