When LionNews talked with Chad Wednesday evening, he said he was still planning to announce his decision on May 27. Penn State, who had offered Chad a scholarship, was the leader until he was offered by the home-state Buckeyes. Has anyone else offered?

"Boston College and West Virginia," Chad said. "Pitt said they were going to offer, they just had to get the letter to me."

Ohio State is Hoobler's favorite followed by Penn State and then Boston College. The Buckeyes appear to be in the driver's seat. Can anyone else catch OSU?

"Probably not," Chad admitted.

Penn State is recruiting Hoobler to play tight-end.

"So is Ohio State. I think Boston College is recruiting me for defensive-end. It doesn't matter really, as long as I get to play."
