North Miami Beach, Fla., defensive back E.J. Biggers made his official visit to Ohio State this weekend.

Biggers (6-0, 168, 4.5) has made previous visits to Penn State and Kansas in December and saw Western Michigan last weekend. He was scheduled to visit Iowa next weekend, but those plans may change.

"I'm not sure about Iowa right now," Biggers said. "If it's not Iowa, I might make visits to Bowling Green or Colorado."

Kansas and Western Michigan have offered. The Ohio State staff told Biggers they would make a decision on a scholarship offer in the days ahead.

"They said right now they don't know what they're trying to recruit, either a safety or a corner," Biggers said. "They said they would get back with me later in the week.

"Right now, I'd say Kansas, Ohio State and Western Michigan would be my top three choices."

Biggers told he enjoyed his visit to OSU.

"I was hosted by Nate Salley and Nick Patterson," Biggers said. "I enjoyed viewing the facilities there. I enjoyed going over to the stadium and seeing the indoor facility and the weight room. Plus, I got to see that national championship trophy. Those were all big things for me.

"I got to meet all of the players. Everybody there seemed to be down to earth and it felt like home."

Biggers is being recruited by OSU defensive coordinator Mark Snyder. He also spent time with secondary coach Mel Tucker.

"I talked with Coach Tucker and Coach Snyder," Biggers said. "Coach Tucker is a real good coach. He is a young, energetic coach. I got along real well with him."

OSU head coach Jim Tressel missed most of the weekend while coaching in an all-star game in Orlando.

"I saw him this morning," Biggers said. "He took me to the airport. That's the first time I ever got to ride with a head coach. That brightened my eyes a little bit. He said he would be down next week."

Biggers also did not see much of Georgia linebacker Tavares Kearney, who was visiting OSU on a Saturday-to-Monday schedule.

"He was sick," Biggers said. "He wasn't able to leave his room much."

Biggers was a two-way standout at North Miami Beach, starring at quarterback and cornerback. He was a two-time all-county pick. He had 53 tackles and eight interceptions on defense as a senior.

"I guess because I played quarterback, for me playing corner I know where the quarterback wants to go," Biggers said. "I can figure out where he wants to throw and I can get a jump start and break on the ball and everything. I can already predict what he's going to do before he does it."

Biggers holds a 2.7 GPA and is awaiting an ACT score.
