COLUMBUS, Ohio - Dublin (Ohio) Scioto linebacker Nick Conner finally received his Ohio State offer he had been looking for and it did not take long for Conner to jump on it and join the Ohio State recruiting class.
"It felt right," Conner told BuckeyeGrove.com. "I wanted to become a Buckeye since I was young. It was always a dream but I'm willing to work for a spot on the field."
The 6-foot-2, 223-pound linebacker is a 4-star was recently named the linebacker MVP at the Rivals100 Five Star Challenge and is rated as the No. 218 player in the nation regardless of position.
Conner held offers from Michigan State, Maryland, Boston College, Oregon, Virginia Tech and WVU just to name a few schools but many believe that the decision really was between Ohio State and Michigan State.
The Buckeyes had Conner come to campus on Tuesday to work out in front of the Ohio State coaches and apparently Urban Meyer, Chris Ash and Luke Fickell liked what they saw as they extended the offer after seeing Conner in action..
Ohio State is still looking at taking two more linebackers in the class and it would appear that the Buckeyes are in front for Jerome Baker and Justin Hilliard and if the Bucks close on both of them would have a talented core of Ohio linebackers with all three coming from within the state.
Conner projects as a middle linebacker despite some trying to say that he could grow into a defensive end and be a bit of a 'tweener. Conner is 100-percent a linebacker and should be in the mix at the 'Mike'.
We will have more form Conner including what went into his decision and much more.
