While Ohio State is in the midst of working on its 2018 recruiting class, it is also looking ahead to the 2019 haul.
The Buckeyes had their second summer camp on Tuesday and spent some time with 2019 Huntington (W.Wa.) Spring Valley offensive guard Doug Nester. The 6-5½, 295-pounder enjoyed his stay in Columbus, particularly his time spent with Ohio State offensive line coach Greg Studrawa.
“It was a really great experience getting to work with Coach Stud and working with all of the coaches,” Nester said.
He added that he spoke with Coach Meyer in his office at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center as well.
When it comes to his recruitment, Nester has been offered by a number of schools, some of which include Florida, North Carolina, Ohio State, Virginia Tech and West Virginia, all of which he said he has visited this spring.
Though Nester is still two years away from joining the college level, he stated a decision will probably be made in about the next month or so. Nester wants to decide this early “So I can start working with that team getting me ready to come in,” he said.
The O-lineman noted that if he knows where he’ll commit to in the coming weeks he won’t bother issuing a top list. If he is unsure of his college choice in a month, expect a list.
“It really just depends if (my decision) hits me then,” Nester explained. “I’ll fire off a top list if it hasn’t, but if it has then I won’t.”
While many prospects are known for enjoying the recruiting process, that is not the case for Nester.
“It’s alright,” he said. “It’s not the best thing, but it’s kind of hard sometimes with all the traveling and everything. But I’ll make it work.”
When asked about where the Buckeyes stand with him, Nester kept his answer short and sweet.
“They’re definitely high up there,” he said.
