Dampeer down to two

Things are sounding more promising for Ohio State when it comes to Illinois blue-chip defensive tackle Lawrence Dampeer. He seems to be narrowing things down. "I don't think I am going to Tennessee," he said. "I will still visit Miami and then Ohio State. I have been to Illinois and Oklahoma."

"It is going to come down to Oklahoma and Ohio State," he said. "Miami is still in the top three but it is 21 hours away. I don't know about that. It may be too far. My family would have a hard time getting to games."

Dampeer talked about linebacker Shawn Crable, who he has struck up a friendship with. "Yeah, Shawn Crable is my boy. We were kickin' it at the (national all-star) game."
