A big announcement from Ohio State recruiting is that DeMario McCall has committed to be a Buckeye for the upcoming season.
As things stand, Ohio State will start to be known as the "Running back University" because of their great recruiting success. DeMario McCall will add a great deal to the 2016 class without a shadow of a doubt and it is to a great deal thanks to Urban Meyer and his team.
Notre Dame, Tennessee, Penn State and a number of other predominant universities were all after the talented DeMario McCall's' signature. However, he decided that despite all the other offers, going to Ohio State was the best decision for him.
Much of the credit has to be given to the new running back coach Tony Alford, who did his utmost to bring DeMario McCall to Ohio, and what a great job he did too; credited fully by 247Sports.com as being the man responsible for doing the good work.
After a visit to Columbus today, McCall was happy to become a Buckeye.
DeMario McCall talked to Scout.com and told them that he was impressed with what he saw at Ohio State and that it felt like home. He added that he wanted to help Ohio State win more national championships.
He went on to tell how Coach Meyer compared him to Percy Harvin after he had seen footage of him, which he took as a high compliment, with Harvin being a highly respected player in his time.
He continued to talk about how he expected to be used in the same way as Curtis Samuel; in the backfield and in space.
Ohio State already managed to land Kareem Walker - a highly rated running back. It seems as though the Buckeyes are off to a good start.
