Harding Blazes At Ohio State

Dayton (OH) Christian athlete Heath Harding talks about his blazing day at Ohio State camp on Saturday.

In the past couple of weeks Heath Harding has gone from under the radar prospect to one Mid American Conference programs are fighting for.

How was Harding's day at Ohio State on Saturday.

"Ohio State was good," said Harding. "I ran two good forty times of 4.33 and 4.38. So I was pretty excited about that."

Harding's speed didn't go unnoticed as Ohio State coaches reached out to him after camp.

"I spoke with (assistant) coach Tim Hinton," said Harding. "He told me they liked what I did today as I had the fastest forty times in all their camps. He said they liked my speed and that I did everything I was expected to do and to give him a call next week sometime."

Harding also added a new offer on the day and perked the interest of a few other programs.

"Eastern Michigan and Akron talked with me today," said Harding. "Bowling Green has now just offered me as well."

Prior to the camp season Harding was listed as a running back and held no offers coming into the month of June. At a couple of camps he turned over to defense working out as a corner. What did he do at Ohio State?

"I worked out at corner and did some receiver work during one-on-one drills," said Harding. "I felt I did pretty well during one-on-ones as I burned a few guys. However, a couple of times I couldn't make the catch as the ball was underthrown."

Will Ohio State be Harding's first BCS offer?
