At 6-feet and 210 pounds, Miami (Fla.) Central standout linebacker Ali Highsmith made his first official visit of the year this past weekend.
"I went up to Ohio State," he said. "Me, Moncur, and Stanley [McClover] went up and we had a good time together. Ohio State has a bunch of guys on their team from down here. We hung out with Chris Gamble and some of the guys."
Highsmith has two more trips lined up and may take a fourth.
"I'm going to LSU next weekend and then UM on the 24th," he said. "I'm not sure yet, but I might go to Auburn on the 31st. But I think I'll probably know where I'm going after I visit UM."
So did the visit to Ohio State put the Buckeyes even with the Hurricanes.
"It was straight and everything but I still like UM," he said. "It's right down the road and they're going to need some linebackers. Me, Bowe, Pata, Moncur and a bunch of us are taking our visit together."
Highsmith, who finished the season with 90 tackles, seven sacks, eight caused fumbles, and three defensive touchdowns, also enjoyed his trip to the CaliFlorida Bowl.
"That was fun," he said. "All of us [from Dade] hung out together and Earl [Everett] too. I didn't like the way they game went but it was fun during the week. There were a lot of good players. That dude Earl and someone named Glenn [Cook] were pretty good linebackers I thought."
Highsmith is close friends with Norland standout Dwayne Bowe.
"He didn't go anywhere this weekend," he said. "We're going to LSU together next week and then UM. We'll probably go [to college] together."
