UK Commit and Kenton Prospect Larry Wells Doesn't Care About Ohio State

Larry Wells is a fast-rising offensive line prospect from Kenton, Ohio. Kentucky, which has been a thorn in the side to mid and bottom-table Big Ten teams, was one of the first programs to offer Wells. He didn't even have a recruiting service ranking at the time.

When they got him on campus, Wells felt a connection with UK and pledged his services so far. According to, Wells says the UK coaches told him he was their top lineman on their board.

Now, some other programs have seen the potential in Larry Wells, and they're trying to bully their way into the game for the services of the 2015 lineman, who is now rated as a three-star prospect Rivals.

Two of those programs are Michigan State and Ohio State, and it appears Wells is a fan of neither.

"Pretty much, 'Thanks, but no thanks,'" Wells told on what he said to Michigan State. "I mean, it's awesome to get an offer from them. It's a Big Ten program, but I'm happy with where I'm at."

On Ohio State, he was much more succinct. 

"I don't care about [Ohio State] at all," he said.

Fair enough, Larry, fair enough. Sometimes the lure of a program that won two games in 2013 can be strong.
