For as slow as the 2015 recruiting process may be moving for Ohio State at this point compared to the other large programs, they have been hot on the trail with the 2016 class.
One of those recruits in 2016 is three-star defensive end Malik Barrow, who recently walked about his experience of being recruited by one of the best programs in the land, the Ohio State Buckeyes.
As always, it helps having a legendary coach like Urban Meyer around when you’re trying to recruit the best players in the nation.
“Meeting Urban Meyer, meeting a legend is mind-blowing,” Barrow told cleveland.com. “He is a legend, a great coach. He was won multiple national championships — it was just crazy to me.”
It’s also nice to see that one of the newest members of the Buckeyes’ coaching staff, defensive line coach Larry Johnson, hasn’t lost a beat on the recruiting trail in regards to leaving a lasting impression, one of the attributes that he excelled at in his many years at Penn State.
“It was really nice working with (Johnson),” Barrow said. “I had a lot of fun and learned a lot of important things. … I am blown away that (Ohio State) is interested in me because they’re a great school that is going to compete for national titles.”
As of right now, with still a lot of time to go in the process, Barrow isn’t ready to set a top list or anything of that nature, but it sure seems as if he had a good time in Columbus recently.
