Gaithersburg (MD) Quince Orchard defensive tackle Adam McLean is a name that many will want to become familiar with. The four-star prospect was named to the initial Scout 300 for the 2015 class.
McLean's offer list has reached the double digits but other schools that haven't thrown one his way are expressing interest as well. Two of those schools are Pittsburgh and Ohio State.
He will visit Pittsburgh very soon and also hopes to check out Ohio State.
"I'm visiting Pittsburgh on Monday for their season opener," said McLean. "I also would like to visit Michigan State and Ohio State this season. I'd like to check out others but those are the only realistic ones. I'll also have time to check out places nearby like Maryland or Virginia too."
McLean has expressed a strong interest in a scholarship offer from the Buckeyes previously. He spoke about Ohio State and why they are a school that has his attention.
"I've been an Ohio State fan for a while," he admitted. "I love the atmosphere of that place and I want to see it for myself. They have a diehard fan base. Coach Meyer is a guy that is all about his business. He's won everywhere he's been and he's going to do the same at Ohio State. They're a school that catches the eye."
Luke Fickell and Ed Warinner are two coaches that the four-star defensive tackle has spoken to and he discussed what they have told him thus far.
"They tell me they like my style of play," stated McLean. "They think I play the game the way it is supposed to be played. They're going to watch me closely this year and want to see a bit more film before they decide if they want to offer."
What impact would an offer from Ohio State have on McLean?
"Ohio State kind of stands out already but I haven't focused on any of that stuff yet," he explained. "If they offer, I would be honored but it's not something I'm worried about to be honest. I'll address it if the offer comes but I don't think it would change things. It would just give me more incentive and an added urgency to go there and visit."
