"Ohio State is my love," Pead professed. "I had a great time on Saturday. I liked watching the way they do their drills and how hard they work. It was a great experience foe me."
Pead is being recruited by defensive backs coach Paul Haynes. He spent a lot of time at Ohio State this past year attending every home game.
"Ohio State is recruiting me as a defensive back," he said. "I went to every home game last year. They have invited me to come out and watch them practice this spring. I will be at the spring game for sure."
Pead is drawing a lot of interest from many of the top programs in the Mid-West. He talked about his offer list and his list of favorites.
"I have scholarship offers from Cincinnati and Miami of Ohio," Pead explained. "I'm hearing a lot from Illinois, North Carolina State, Ohio University and Boston College. My list of favorites would be Ohio State, Penn State, West Virginia, Boston College and Indiana."
Pead did not attend any camps last summer but did attend the National High School All-Star Combine in Cleveland where he ran a 4.52 forty-yard dash on a slow track. Pead, who rushed for 1,696 yards and scored 24 touchdowns last season, is just starting to plan his camp schedule for this spring.
"I'll be at the
Scout.com camp in Pittsburgh," he said. "I'm planning on going on the Ted Ginn
bus tour also. After that I'll probably attend the Ohio State senior camp. I'm
not sure about any others at this time."
