Rigg Talks Ohio State FNL

Tight end Justin Rigg talks about his Friday Night Lights experience at Ohio State in our latest update.

Friday night was a big night for Springboro (Ohio) junior tight end Justin Rigg as he worked out at Ohio State during the Buckeyes Friday Night Lights camp.

How was his experience?

“I loved it,” said Rigg. “Right when I walked in it was an amazing feeling to be in the stadium. When we did the tight end drills, I thought it was cool to work with Coach (Tim) Hinton. I also thought it was cool catching a touchdown or even just a pass in the horseshoe.”

What if anything did the Buckeyes coaching staff say about their interest in the 6-foot-6, 230-pound Rigg?

“Coach Hinton talked with me when I first showed up,” he continued. “He shook my hand and told me it was great that I was up there. I didn’t think he’d even know who I was, but he knew and then he said it was great for me to be there and that he was happy I was there.

“Coach Hinton also said I did a great job on my one-on-ones and said I was a great player.”

What would it mean to earn an offer from the Buckeyes?

“For me to get an offer from Ohio State would be amazing,” he said. “My whole family is Buckeye fans and I’ve liked them my whole life. I would want to go there because of how great of a school it is and how great they’ve been in football every year.”

Despite several solid showings in camp this summer, Rigg has yet to pick up his first scholarship offer. However, he knows it’s just a matter of time once he gets his junior season underway and gets some film out to college coaches.

“I’ve very excited to get the season started and to see how I start off in our first two games,” he said. “I can’t wait to start hitting and then send some film out from the first two games so coaches can see what I can do. A lot of MAC schools have shown interest and I feel it will be one of them to give me my first offer when they see some film.”
