OL gets Ohio State offer

Ohio State is not wasting any time in going after the outstanding Ohio juniors-to-be. One of those players is Alex Boone from Lakewood St. Edward. Boone stands about 6-7 and weighs in around 300 pounds. Head Coach John Gibbons has raved about him in the past when we've talked to him, and now he has become one of the first players in the upcoming junior class to be offered.

Alex was not home this evening when we called, but we spoke to his mother about it.

"We don't have the letter in hand, but Coach Gibbons called and said he had a letter from Coach Tressel indicating that Ohio State was offering Alex a scholarship," she said. "Coach Gibbons is at a football camp, so we can't get the letter."

"Alex was down at Ohio State yesterday," she said. "He is very excited about the offer."

"I am sure he has not made a decision yet."

"He has not camped anywhere else and it looks like he will not. He is not much of a traveler."
