Severt Makes His Way to Ohio State

Rising junior Jordan Severt lived in Cincinnati until he was in 6th grade before moving to Texas. Check out what the quarterback has to say about returning to Ohio to attend the Buckeyes' camp.

6-foot-4, 227 pound rising junior Jordan Severt and his family made their way up to Columbus for Ohio State's two-day camp last weekend. The Harvest (TX) quarterback currently holds an offer from SMU but has also been camping at Texas, Texas A&M and TCU and plans on heading to Stanford and Alabama later this summer. As for Ohio State, he says he had a great experience.

"The coaches were all really intense. They want you to play as hard as you can and go as fast as you can. I got to work with Coach Herman. I like him a lot. He's from Texas too so we can relate. I got his phone number so I'll probably be in contact with him."

So what brought the QB all the way up to Ohio? It turns out he has a connection to the state.

"Until 6th grade I grew up in Cincinnati, and then moved to Austin."

While Severt admits that he'd like to stay close to home, he is still open to all possibilities.

"It really just depends on what my choices are. I like Texas, I'd like to stay in Texas if it could be but it's tough to say no to places like Ohio State and Stanford. I pretty much like anyone who likes me. That's how it is right now."

The rising junior only started two games last season, but is looking forward to expanding his role this fall.

"On the field I think I make good decisions. I try to be a student of the game and study film, know the game plan. I can move pretty well for someone my size."
