QB Will Camp At OSU

Ohio State is going very slowly in their pursuit of a quarterback for their 2014 recruiting class. Georgia native Stephen Collier will camp at Ohio State, looking to earn an offer.

Leesburg (GA) Lee County quarterback Stephen Collier is a signal caller under the radar but is beginning to attract some interest from top BCS programs. He currently holds eight offers.

"I've been offered by Troy, Middle Tennessee, Marshall, Louisiana Tech, Harvard, Toledo, Wake Forest, and Cincinnati so far," Collier mentioned. "Ohio State, Florida State, and Georgia are beginning to show some interest in me though."

Collier shares how his relationship with Ohio State assistant Tom Herman has begun to take off.

"Coach Herman watched me throw during practice two weeks ago," he noted. "He stayed for the full practice from start to finish. He had some good things to say about me to my coach. He wants me to come to camp to throw in front of Coach (Urban) Meyer. Me and Coach Herman talk regularly now."

"He made me aware of their situation in recruiting the quarterbacks and who they have offered so far," Collier continued. "He didn't guarantee anything or anything like that but he told me that if I come up there and do well that there'd be a chance for something to happen."

The Lee County product has one camp visit set in stone.

"I accepted the invitation to camp and will be at Ohio State on June 9," Collier said. "Georgia wants me to camp as well but I'm not sure if I'll make it to that. Florida State will be here Friday and they have been trying to get me to camp for a while and I might do that."

Collier explains his familiarity with the Ohio State program and what has enticed him to camp for the Buckeyes.

"It's funny because I was born in Marietta, Georgia but when I was 5 I moved to Kentucky and everyone there was all about either Ohio State or Kentucky," he stated. "For that reason, I know what there is to know about Ohio State. I'm aware of the prestige they bring and the tradition the program has. I'm definitely not a stranger to what they have got going for them."
