Recruiting Update - Richard Clebert, Alfred Martin

We have updates now on two linemen showing interest in OSU - Miami Edison's Richard Clebert and Lyndhurst Brush's Alfred Martin.

Alfred Martin, a DT/OL prospect from Brush High School in Lyndhurst Ohio, has his recruiting visits all planned out.

"I've got all my visits set," he said. He's scheduled for Toledo on 12/5, Wisconsin on 12/12, Cincinnati on 1/9, Ohio State on 1/16, and Louisville on 1/23.

Martin, who came down to OSU for the Purdue game, has not yet settled on a position in college.

"No one's really said," he said. "Defensive line or offensive tackle, no one's really decided yet."

He hasn't taken the test and won't until January. He won't play any sports this winter; he's just going to stay in the weight room.

Ohio State always hits the Miami area hard, and this year, they've had their eye on Edison High School. But one of Edison's top players, Richard Clebert, says OSU hasn't talked to him recently.

"I haven't talked to Ohio State in a while," he said. "I have visits set up for Nebraska and LSU, and both of them have offered."

As a result, his leaders have changed.

"Miami and Ohio State were always my favorites, but now it's Miami and LSU," he said. "I was going to set up something with Ohio State but they just haven't been talking to me in a while."

Clebert, who checks in at 6-1, 281 right now, is still going in the playoffs.

"We're 12-2," Richard said. "We're in the semifinals of the playoffs. I was going to visit this weekend but we made it this far in the playoffs so I had to cancel."

Clebert is fully qualified and could play on either side of the ball.

"I play center and defensive tackle," he said. "Most people are recruiting me as a defensive tackle."
