Chanhassen (MN) offensive guard Frank Ragnow has seen his stock rise amongst a bevy of top college football powers recently. He's been heavily pursued by Minnesota, Florida State, and Arkansas recently and took an official visit to each.
"I had good visits to Minnesota, Florida State, and Arkansas," said Ragnow. "I liked both trips and enjoyed myself. Minnesota wants me to stay close to home and play in front of my state. Florida State and Arkansas told me how much they needed guys at my position."
Ohio State was a school that had shown interest in Ragnow for a long time and offered a few months ago. Ragnow discussed if the Buckeyes were still in the mix.
"They were never out of it," he noted. "Coach Warinner has been in contact with me for a long time and we've stayed in touch. Ohio State offered and it was an exciting moment. They've been in it the whole time."
With three official visits already in the books, Ragnow has the option to take two more. One school is being considered for one of the openings.
"I'm thinking about taking an official visit to Ohio State," he told Scout. "I'm still trying to figure it all out. It would be in January. I'm still in process of figuring out the rest of my top five so I can use my other official visits. Nothing is decided yet."
His willingness to take his two final official visits would suggest that Ragnow will decide closer to Signing Day.
Ragnow is rated as a four-star prospect and listed as the nation's 15th best offensive guard.
