One Visit Left For Larimore

Merrillville (Ind.) defensive tackle Dexter Larimore took an official visit to Michigan this past weekend. He has one more to go -- Ohio State on Dec. 2 -- and then he will come to a decision between the Buckeyes and Wolverines.

Will it be Michigan or Ohio State for Merrillville, Indiana DT Dexter Larimore? After visiting Michigan over the weekend, Larimore said either the Buckeyes or the Wolverines would be the choice.

"This was a pretty good visit," Larimore said. "It was an official visit. They took me around and everything. I had been there before."

Michigan will get Larimore on campus again this weekend for the OSU/UM game, and then after his visit to Ohio State on Dec. 2, he expects to make a decision.

"I'll likely make my decision in December after my Ohio State visit," he said.

Ohio State will be Larimore's fifth visit. Even though he has taken only two football official visits, he has also visited Iowa State and Michigan State for wrestling.

"I am taking all my visits," Larimore said. "I took one to Indiana and this one to Michigan for football. I have Ohio State last. I went to Iowa State and Michigan State for wrestling. All visits count. You are only allowed to take five total in all your sports."

Even though Larimore is ranked No. 1 nationally in the heavyweight wrestling class, he told that football will be his sport in college.

"I'm sure I'll be playing football in college," he said. "Especially when I'm considering places like Michigan and Ohio State -- football is king there and would take up all my time."

Defensive scheme may play a role in Larimore's decision.

"We play more a one-gap scheme in high school," he said. "That is what I want to play in college."

Larimore's high school season is still going on. Merrillville is 11-2 and advanced to the state semifinals after a playoff win Friday night.
