Cincy O-Linemen talk recruiting

Duane Long has the latest on two Cincinnati area offensive linemen -- Ty Hall and Tom Anevski.

One of the more frequently asked questions this year when it comes to recruiting is whether or not Ohio State will offer any of the in-state offensive linemen.  Two of them -- Cincinnati Anderson's Ty Hall and Cincinnati Elder's Tom Anevski -- recently gave updates as to where things stand.

Ty Hall's season just ended with a first-round playoff upset after going 10-0 in the regular season.

"I'm doing great," he said. "We had a great year with a real tough loss to end it. We went 10 and 1."

So far, he has three visits set up and is trying to figure out who will get the other two.

" I am visiting Boston College November 15, Vanderbilt December 6, and Clemson either November 23 or January 10.  I would really like to set one up with Ohio State, and I definitely would if they offered."

"The other teams fighting for the other two spots are Stanford, Northwestern, Wake Forest, Maryland, Pitt, Illinois, and Purdue. All of them have offered."

Meanwhile, Tom Anevski and Cincinnati Elder are still going after two playoff wins.  He talked about his visits as well, but it doesn't sound like there is much interest in Ohio State.

"I am set up for Vandy on December 6th and Cincinnati on December 13," he said. "The others I am still considering are BC, Stanford and Purdue."

"Minnesota and Northwestern are calling. Iowa is still in touch by mail, but they are not calling."

Tom talked about what kind of player he is and where he will play in college.

"I am a good pass blocker and a great run blocker," he said. "BC likes me better at guard, but the others like me at tackle. BC is talking about center... I am a solid 280 lbs right now and benching 375."

Tom talked about the top players he's played against, and there are a couple of familiar names there.

"Nick Larkin was the best player I have played against," he said. "(Michael) Massey, the junior from St. Ignatius, was a nice player, but he impressed me more as a tight end."
