SCHOOL: Worthington Kilbourne
SIZE: 6-foot-3, 230 pounds.
POSITION: Long snapper.
STAR RANKING: Two star.
POSITION RANKING: N/A
SCOUTING REPORT: One of the top long snappers in the nation, McCullough was chosen for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl this year and should provide the Buckeyes with excellent stability in the position for years to come.
WHY WAS Ohio State THE RIGHT SCHOOL? "There are definitely people that say that long snappers aren't important and aren't deserving of scholarships," McCullough said. "But when the top schools in the nation are offering snappers out of high school, schools such as Ohio State, Michigan State, Wisconsin and Alabama, these big-time head coaches are saying that these players deserve scholarships as well and are an important part of the team. I think that speaks for itself coming from the best head coach in the country in Coach Meyer.
"When it wasn't during football season, I tried to place an emphasis on academic visits and getting to see everything but the football facilities. Every year, I'm going to be there for three-quarters of the year when it's not football season. That's just as important if not more so than seeing the football aspects. Those visits definitely helped to seal the deal."
