WHY Ohio State: "I have an outstanding relationship with Coach (Tom) Herman," he told Scout. "He's probably my favorite coach on the staff. He had a lot to do with my decision. He's definitely given Ohio State a presence in Texas, which has been huge. Coach (Ed) Warinner is a great offensive line coach and I feel like I have a lot to learn from him."
"Everyone tries to make Coach (Urban) Meyer out to be this awful person who doesn't care about his players," he continued. "As time went by I actually started to believe that. I knew I needed to firm up and find out everything for myself. Once I was able to form my own opinion, I was able to see that it was totally false. He's a players' coach and one of the best there's ever been."
