Hamilton, Ohio, safety prospect Adam Myers-White was recently quoted on the Bucknuts Radio Hour as saying he was "95 percent" sure he would sign with Ohio State. We caught up with Myers-White during the recent state track meet. Click here to see if things are still that cut and dried with this top-10 Ohio prospect.

Hamilton, Ohio, safety prospect Adam Myers-White created a stir a few weeks back when he declared he was "95 percent" sure he would end up at Ohio State.

We had a chance to speak with Myers-White (6-3, 190, 4.5) at the state track meet this past weekend. Myers-White participated in a relay race with several of his Hamilton teammates, including OSU verbal Brandon Underwood.

Myers-White, ranked as the state's fifth-best prospect by Ohio High, discussed his summer plans.

"I'm going to Ohio State's senior day camp June 27th," he said. "That's the only camp I'm going to go to. Then I have a couple of basketball things I'm going to do with my school team. The rest of the summer, I'm just going to work out for football."

Myers-White told he has 18 scholarship offers.

When asked about his favorites, he replied, "I would say Ohio State, of course, as well as USC, Michigan, Notre Dame and Oklahoma right now. The coach (from Oklahoma) wrote and said he saw my top five. They hadn't offered but they are now. I've been trying to contact them."

Michigan State, Stanford and Boston College have also offered Myers-White, he said. His father, Coleman, played for Bo Schembechler at Michigan.

Contrary to opinions that have said that Myers-White will make a quick decision, he told he is likely in this for the long haul. He was also a member of Hamilton's state championship winning basketball team this past winter, so college visits may be juggled around his team's schedule this December and January.

"I'm going to take my visits," he said. "I have to make sure I make the right decision. I just want to look out for my future. I want to someday make the NFL. But if that doesn't happen, knock on wood, I just want to look for my degree first and foremost."

Myers-White discussed where things stand with Ohio State.

"(Assistant Jim) Heacock is recruiting me, but I've talked to the whole staff there," he said. "The whole staff sent me a post card. They would be one of my top schools, but I still want to take my official visits. That would not be fair to myself to just visit Ohio State and say, 'That's where I want to go' right then and there.

"They're going to stay high on my list, but I want to see what else is out there. That is no knock on Ohio State at all. I just want to make sure I make the right decision."

Last season, Adam had over 70 tackles with four interceptions and three fumble recoveries. Some have compared his abilities as a safety to former UCLA and NFL standout Kenny Easley.

"I haven't heard that one," Myers-White said. "It's God's blessing to me to have this ability. But, to me, I still think I have too much to work on with my game to be compared to anyone. I still have to prove a little bit more as a senior. I really don't try to prove a lot of things to other people except my coaches so I can get on the field.

"A lot of people say I compare to Mike Doss, too. To me, I'm just trying to make myself better. I'm thankful of that that people think highly of me, but I still have a long way to go.

"I think I read well and I have good tackling technique. I'm really versatile. I want to improve my speed and quickness. I also want better footwork on man-to-man coverage and improve my coverage technique."

Myers-White holds a 3.7 GPA and already has a qualifying test score.
