In the middle of Ohio State's special teams camp, the Buckeyes picked up a commitment from a junior long snapper.
"I have committed to The Ohio State University," said Liam McCullough Tuesday evening. "Today just felt right," he said. "I had a great two days at camp and a great time meeting with coach (Urban) Meyer. Ohio State just felt like home."
The Worthington (Ohio) Kilbourne rising senior says that when he told the coaching staff his decision, he couldn't have asked for a better reception.
"As soon as I told coach Meyer, he gave me a hug and went immediately from recruiting mode to coaching mode. He and I are already meeting one-on-one tomorrow during the last day of camp to get after it together," said McCullough.
The long snapper says that knowing that he'll be a Buckeye is exciting.
"It feels amazing. It's my dream school and everybody there is already making me feel like part of the family. I'm most looking forward to working with the best coaching staff in the nation and doing everything I can to help my team win a national championship," said McCullough.
So, what can Buckeye fans expect from the long snapper?
"I'm there to work hard and learn from my coaches and teammates, give them a sense of security that there will be perfect snaps for four straight years and help my team win a national championship," he said.
Before officially becoming a Buckeye, the long snapper says he still wants to work on getting faster.
"The biggest thing is my speed. Getting down field after the snap I want to be as fast as possible," he said.
McCullough also held offers from Kentucky, Michigan State and Wisconsin.
