Elyria (OH) junior Tracy Sprinkle thought he was going just on a visit to Ohio State, but came out with even more.
"Ohio State offered me about an hour or so ago. Urban Meyer was the one to give it to me. He basically told me that I was a great player and could do great things for the program."
While in Columbus, Sprinkle got a chance to take in the whole Ohio State atmosphere.
"I watched spring practice which was really intense. I toured the campus; saw the dorms, the academic help building and the whole football facility."
So where do the Buckeyes stand with Sprinkle?
"They're at the top. Growing up I loved them, but I don't put it in that type of way. I try to focus more on what's best for me now playing and not just being a fan."
Even with this offer, the junior doesn't plan on rushing his commitment.
"I'm still waiting. I want to give it some thought and prayer."
Sprinkle plans on attending OSU's camp this summer.
