Mesquite (TX) Horn offensive guard Conner Dyer has flown a bit under the radar but he's one of the top prospects in the state of Texas. He's rated as the nation's 13th best guard, a four-star prospect, and is in the Scout 300 nationally.
He is in the midst of seeing a handful of schools over the summer months and one of those trips took him to Columbus. It was his first look at Ohio State.
"I liked it a lot," Dyer said. "I'm glad I made the trip. You want to be careful with the long unofficial visits, but this one was well worth it."
There hadn't been a lot of chatter about the Buckeyes in Dyer's recruitment to date. He shared some reasons why it was a visit he wanted to make.
"I decided it was a place I wanted to check out because of my relationship with Coach Herman and the reputation of the school," he stated. "They're always competing for championships and the tradition of the program is exceptional."
Dyer spoke about the best parts of his time in Columbus.
"My favorite part was hanging out with the players, especially (Kyle) Trout, the offensive lineman," he noted. "I had a good time with him and it felt natural and comfortable being around him and the other guys."
"The visit was definitely a plus," Dyer continued. "I liked them going in, but I have a better feeling for them now. I know more about it and that's a good thing."
The four-star interior line prospect will visit Tennessee tomorrow, and Ole Miss on Monday.
