WAS THERE REASON FOR CONCERN AT THE END? “It’s been very stressful the last week or so,” said Burrow. “Our visit went very well and I’m very happy with everything that went down. I was already sold on Ohio State but just needed to sit down and get to know Coach Beck better and get a feel for him.”

“The visit was mainly to get a chance and get to know him more,” he said. “I wouldn’t say we went in with too many concerns as it was mainly just a social meeting with not too many questions. We just sat around talking and getting a feel for the kind of guy he is and the kind of relationship we will have.
