2015 Columbia (TN) Central tight end Jackson Harris is a prospect that has picked up several offers in recent months. His most recent came from Mississippi State.
The Buckeyes have their eye on Harris and he saw the Buckeyes' campus for the first time this past weekend.
"The visit was awesome," said Harris. "I loved every second of it. The atmosphere before the game and during the game was unreal. I hadn't ever seen anything like it."
Harris left Ohio State without an offer but left the campus with a strong impression of the Buckeyes' program.
"I talked to Coach (Tim) Hinton before and after the game. He was real excited I made the trip and happy they got the victory. We talk weekly so we have a strong relationship."
The Tennessee junior spoke about the chat he had with the Ohio State assistant.
"They aren't ready to offer yet," he explained. "He told me that he might be down to see me play during their bye week. It would be a good chance for him to evaluate me so I hope he does."
"They like my size and potential," he added. "They have told me that I'm on their radar and that they will keep watching to see how I progress."
Harris' next visit will be to Clemson in a few weeks. He is still a long way from making any kind of decision.
"I want to take my time with my recruitment," he mentioned. "New schools are reaching out to me every day and I want to take the time to research every school and make the best decision for myself. I'm in no rush and want to wait on some schools that have shown interest in me but have not yet offered."
