    nice find Nutty

    tOSU has some work to do but he is giving them a chance- It is just hard to imagine losing an Ohio kid we want (and offered early) to Purdue :(

    A um fan that has a cousin at Purdue. No wonder we don't seem to have a great shot at Amos. Hopefully we'll at least get a visit though.

    Especially from Middletown. I can't think of any lost that we pursued.

    There was a Calhoun in the mid-90's I can't think of.

    Middletown Receiver To Visit Buckeyes
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mike Wachsman
    BuckeyeSports.com Staff

    This is going to be a busy week for Middletown receiver Andre Amos, and it's scheduled to begin tomorrow with an unofficial visit to Ohio State.

    The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Amos, ranked as the No. 10 prospect in Ohio by BuckeyeSports.com, will tour the campus and try to get a feel for what the Buckeyes program is all about.

    "I'm interested to see what Ohio State has to offer," Amos told BuckeyeSports.com. "It's just to get an idea of what the program is about and how the coaches deal with me."

    Amos, who caught 30 passes and scored four touchdowns last season, is being recruited as a receiver by the Buckeyes. A few schools were looking at him as a defensive player, and though there's a preference toward offense Amos didn't rule out playing in the secondary.

    "Whatever gets me on the field the quickest is what I'll do," Amos said.

    After his Ohio State visit, Amos is slated to tour Michigan on Thursday. After that, Amos doesn't believe he'll be taking any more visits.

    "I think I'm pretty close to making my mind up, but I want to see what's out there," Amos said. "I'd say the factors that will help me make my decision are definitely wins and losses, whether or not I click with the coaching staff and how quickly I can play."

    Amos said Purdue holds a slight lead over OSU and Michigan, and he's been to West Lafayette three times already.

    "They prepare receivers really well and I like the coaching staff a lot," he said. "I clicked almost instantly with them."

    Though Purdue leads, it's not unfair to say that Ohio State and Michigan both have a chance to change Amos' mind.

    "Oh, definitely," he said. "If I really like what I see at both of those places then they'll be right there with Purdue. I'm just more familiar with Purdue right now and I like what I've seen. But Ohio State and Michigan aren't out of it. That's why I'm taking these visits."

    Free Insiders Update - Amos Down To Two

    Amos Down To Two
    By Duane Long
    Date: Jul 27, 2004

    WR Andre Amos of Middletown -- one of Ohio High's top 15 overall prospects in the state -- is down to two schools, and one is Ohio State. Duane Long caught up with him this evening to find out the latest.

    Outstanding Middletown WR Andre Amos took a visit up to Ohio State today and came away pleased with what he saw.
    "Yeah, I was up to Ohio State today," he said. "It went to pretty good.

    "I met Coach Tucker, Coach Heacock, Coach Peterson, and Coach Tressel. They just showed me around. It was my second time there, but I had never been to the stadium. It was nice, and it was big. I knew it was big, but I just didn't know it was that big."

    Amos could play on either side of the ball in college, but if he goes to Ohio State, the coaches may have to have a tug-o-war to decide what side gets him.

    "(DBs) Coach (Mel) Tucker wants me to play corner," he said. But I talk to (WRs) Coach (Darrell) Hazell all the time, and he wants me (at WR)."

    Amos also went to Purdue recently.

    "Yes, I did go to Purdue," he said. "I went there last Sunday."

    Will he be visiting Michigan?

    "No, they're out of it now," he said.

    And when asked if he was down to two schools, Amos said, "Yes."

    When will a decision come?

    "Well, I don't know," he said. "I kind of want to get it over with, but I'm just going to go for whenever it feels right."

    Whatever the case may be, Amos is sure of one thing, and that is he is anxious for the season to start.

    "Really right now, I just want to play football," he said.

    Amos and Middletown went up against Dayton Chaminade-Julienne last week. He was very impressed with Notre Dame commitment CB Brandon Harrison.

    "He gave me some real competition," he said.

    Amos now says tOSU has a "slight edge" over Purdue

    He will unofficial visit tOSU for the Cincy game and then an official to Purdue the next weekend. After that he will make a decision.

    Sounds positive coming from the Purdue site- maybe Amos is saving his tOSU official visit for the scUM game?? He wouldn't want to burn that official on Cincy when he can save it to be with all his fellow tOSU verbals :)

    From followimg this for a couple of years, I seem to think the recruits interested in Ohio State, attend as many home games as they want to. It woiuld be great is he was commited by the Michigan game, and then took his offical to spend time with other recruits. Amos must be very good to have shot the charts as he has done.

    Hartline and Amos in this class would be nice. Hopefully we could add someone like Lymon as well to bolster the WR corp. Are there any other big time WR recruits out there that we are looking at?

    Rouse and Williams are two names that have come up as highly touted wide receivers listing OSU. However, most have written them off. I would shoot for Amos and/or Lymon and leave it at that. I have noticed in recent days new names coming up.

    Amos will visit Ohio State and Purdue in September and will make his visit soon after his Purdue visit. Both schools are even right now according to Amos. Amos did like the Buckeye coaching staff and they mentioned he might be able to play early.

    It seems like a lot needs to be straightened out as far as the depth chart goes for our wide recievers. This season should do a lot to straighten that out. However, you have two seniors, Hollins and Childress who should play a major role in the process. So there might just be playing time next year for a youngster. We'll see. With out a doubt though, he has a better time playing here early than he would at 25 WR's on scholarship U.
