" I am being recruited as a safety," he said, "but Syracuse
and Penn State like me at running back too."
Ira has set up one official visit so far, and he has narrowed his list as well.
"I am down to Ohio State, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Syracuse, Maryland and Boston College," he said. "I have only set up one visit -- Michigan State on Dec.13."
Ira has consistently mentioned that OSU is his leader, and that still is the case. He talked a bit about Ohio State.
"I have been down to Ohio State," he said. "Twice. I was down for the spring game and for the advanced camp. I speak with coach Tucker and coach Snyder at Ohio State. I have spoken to coach Tressel too."
OSU DB coach Mel Tucker is making a good impression on Ira.
"I like coach Tucker a lot," he said. "He is one reason why Ohio State is my leader."
