Buckeyes offer junior Long Snapper

The Buckeyes became the third school to offer Worthington (OH) Kilbourne long snapper Liam McCullough today. Michigan State and Wisconsin had already offered the junior.

2015 Worthington (OH) Kilbourne long snapper Liam McCullough visited Ohio State campus today. He had been in contact with Buckeye assistant Kerry Coombs since he camped last summer and walked away from today's trip with a full ride scholarship offer from the Buckeyes.

He talked about how it played out for him.

"I was down on campus today at Ohio State," McCullough confirmed. "I had been in contact with Coach Coombs and he messaged me over twitter last week and said that Coach Meyer wanted me and my parents to visit. They wanted to talk about my future."

"I was discussing how everything was going with Coach Coombs and then Coach Meyer walked in," he added. "That's when the offer was extended."

McCullough has had a lot of exposure to Ohio State while living in central Ohio and admitted the Buckeyes were his favorite growing up.

"I've always been a huge Ohio State fan ever since I was a little kid," he told Scout. "I grew up watching the Buckeyes on television. I'm trying to keep my options open and stay neutral as much as I can. I'm very happy and very excited."

McCullough discussed what he was able to take out of today's visit to the Buckeye campus.

"I like the coaching staff," he mentioned. "It's a great program. It's a very nice campus. I like atmosphere and the stadium on game days. It's been a great experience so far being recruited by them."

McCullough has no timetable for a college decision and has a few other places he plans on checking out.

"I have Michigan State and Wisconsin full-ride scholarship offers too," he noted. "They are even with Ohio State. I want to stay in the middle and neutral now."

"I'm visiting Kentucky on Saturday for their junior day," he continued. "I've been talking to their coaches some. I want to talk with them a little bit more. I'm going to take a trip up to East Lansing as well for a junior day to see Michigan State. I also want to visit Wisconsin."
