Myers-White Talks OSU Visit, Injury

Adam Myers-White has struggled with injury so far this season, but he is working to get back on the field and had a chance to check out Ohio State in the meantime. We have some comments now from Adam and his father on the injury and his OSU trip.

The 2004 season hasn't started the way that safety Adam Myers-White of Hamilton (Oh.) hoped it would. Myers-White got injured in game one and has been trying to get back since then.

"I'm just trying to get back on the field," he said.

Adam's father Coleman White provided some detail on Adam's injury treatment.

"The doctor was supposed to come up to school on Monday, but he didn't make it, so we're taking Adam to the doctor right now to get Adam clearance to return to practice," he said. "If he doesn't return to practice by Wednesday, he can't play Friday.

"He doesn't want to miss another game. He did not play last Friday. He was still in a little pain, so we kept him out. We met Dr. Hertsel. He has a program called traction where he uses rubber bands to increase flexibility. He had Adam running and jumping before he was done. It was amazing."

In the meantime, Myers-White and his father were able to head up to Ohio State this past weekend.

"We were at four games last year, so this was not our first visit to Ohio State," Coleman White said. "We will be up to more games this year."

Adam liked the trip and said things are going well with Ohio State.

"It went pretty well," he said. "Coach Tucker came up to talk to me. It was the usual, but I like what I hear."

Right now, Adam is taking his time with recruiting and does not have any visits set up.

"We don't have any plans for any other visits yet," he said. "I have not really thought about it."

Myers-White (6-3) says that he is currently in the 195-200 pound range and that all the colleges say he will remain at safety. Since enrolling in college early is such a growing trend among high school football players, we asked Adam about his plans, and he said does not want to make an early jump.

"No, I want to play in the all star games," he said. "I want to play in the North/South and the Big 33. I'll come in with everybody else."

It turns out those won't be the only all-star games Adam will be in.

"Adam is going to be on the Army All-American team," Coleman White added. "The announcement will be made at halftime Friday night."
