    Austin visited tOSU for the Indy game and is hoping to hear something from them soon. Heacock went to see one of his games recently and told him that tOSU coaches are impressed. tOSU is his number one choice. He currently has a Wisky offer.

    Maybe another A.J. Hawk, in that he's not the highest on most teams' radar yet could turn out to be a superb LB at the college level?

    For some reason I cant help myself from wanting this kid to get and offer.....He may be a reach, but as Milli said, maybe a sleeper aj hawk..
    On a side note, I have been coming to this board since last spring but just registered and this is my first post. Thanks for all the great work you guys have done here. Far better than any other recruiting board out there, OSU or others. Thanks

    The kid wants to be a buckeye and bleeds for OSU, I hope he gets his wish granted and maybe he is a diamond in the rough so to speak.

    The kid just looks like an inside linebacker. Looks like the only thing really hurting him is that at 6-2 215 he is only running a 4.72. Now if he has a few inches of growing left to do, and has the frame to add 30 pounds, then that 4.72 doesn't look so bad. He could become a terror DE...

    fyi, he measured in at 6-2 226 at the MSL combine last spring. not bad for a linebacker.

    It is down to tOSU and Wisky (offered). He hopes to get the tOSU offer in the next week or two and he would accept. He has been told that the tOSU coaches like him but are just waiting on the nod from JT.

    All he has to do is get a touch faster and I think he could make a fine ILB prosopect. Or, like I said below, I still think if he could put on 2-3 inches and 40-50 pounds, he could be a nasty DE.

    It is still down to tOSU (leader) and Wisky (offer). He will most likely go to tOSU if they offer.

    It seems like Austin is a "backburner" guy for tOSU, if they strike out on some of the other defensive players they are after, they will then offer.

    He was at "the game" for an unofficial visit and was very impressed with the Buckeyes.

    Spitler said that Coach Heacock or Coach Fickell would be at his school Tuesday to let him know whether Ohio State would be offering. He will commit if offered, otherwise he will commit to Wisky on his official Dec. 3rd.

    He is not getting his hopes up but hope it works out.

    He did not hear anything from tOSU on Tuesday as expected. It is possible that tOSU talked to his HS coach (they can not talk to Austin directly) but they have not heard anything yet.
