RECRUITING: Ohio FS says OU is high on his list

Hamilton, Ohio free safety Adam Myers-White says OU will get a visit, but is he the Buckeyes to lose?


Adam Myers-White is just what you are looking for in a free safety. Blessed with size and speed, Myers-White has the ability to play sideline-to-sideline.

Myers-White goes into his third year as a starter at free safety, but he also earned some playing time at running back and this year will see considerable time at wide receiver.

"I can see the whole field at free safety," said Myers-White. "That makes me feel like I am in control and I like being in control. That allows me to make more plays and I like being in the center of the football game."

Myers-White finished last year with 74 tackles, three fumble recoveries and four interceptions, and earned first team All-County honors. Myers-White can bench 250 pounds and he started on a state championship basketball squad (SF/10 ppg) and he runs track (4X400 - second leg, 4X200 - second leg and he high jumps (6'4).

Myers-White went to Michigan State for an unofficial visit and he went to Ohio State's junior day camp and plays to return to their football game later this summer. Adam has been offered by 23 different schools at this point and he is trying to sort through all the information that he is receiving.

"I am just trying to figure out what schools I am really interested in," said Myers-White. "I am right in the middle of all that and I am working through it, but right now I am still working on it. I like USC, Oklahoma, Florida, Ohio State, Michigan, Nebraska, Florida, Auburn, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Miami of Ohio, Stanford and most of the Big 10 schools except for Iowa.

"Oklahoma is very high on my list and that is a school where I will probably visit. I don't know of any schools that I will definitely visit, but Oklahoma is pretty close to being a sure thing."

Myers-White won't say it, but the Buckeyes may have the edge.

"I have been there so many times that I know the campus backwards and forwards," said Myers-White. "I also have two former teammates that go to school there, but I am not locked into staying in-state. And since I have so many great schools that have offered me, I really want to look around and give them a shot."
