North Miami Beach, Fla., defensive back E.J. Biggers is due in Columbus this weekend for an official visit to Ohio State.

Biggers (6-0, 175, 4.5) has made previous visits to Penn State and Kansas in December and saw Western Michigan last weekend. He will make his final visit to Iowa next weekend.

Kansas, Iowa and Western Michigan have offered, while PSU is out of the picture, according to North Miami Beach coach Jeff Bertani.

"Most schools are looking at him as a corner," Bertani said. "He played quarterback and defensive back for us. He was a two-time all-county selection and came within three passes of the breaking the Dade County record.

"He is a tremendous athlete and schools would be looking at him at quarterback, but he is only 6-0. Most schools like quarterbacks who are 6-2 or 6-3 or taller. But he is an unbelievable athlete. He never came off the field. He played both sides of the ball for us."

According to Bertani, Biggers had eight interceptions and 53 tackles as a senior. He is also qualified academically.

OSU assistant Mark Snyder is recruiting Biggers for Ohio State.

"I know Coach Synder from Ohio State real well, and he got tape on E.J. pretty late in the game," Bertani said.

Biggers was to be joined at OSU this weekend by one other official visitor, Tucker, Ga., linebacker Tavares Kearney.
