Buckeyes impress 2014 LB McMillan

Touted 2014 inside linebacker Raekwon McMillan of Hinesville (Ga.) Liberty County has started to map out what figures to be a busy summer.
"I know I'm visiting Alabama, Ohio State and Georgia," McMillan told Rivals.com.
Already, two of the three - Ohio State and Georgia - have offered, joining Auburn, Mississippi, N.C. State, South Carolina and Alabama State. The 6-feet-3, 235-pounder visited both the Buckeyes and Gamecocks two weeks ago.
Of the trips, his visit to Columbus, Ohio, stood out, he said.
"I liked it a lot," McMillan said. "I got to go out on the field during practice, and be in there during an intense practice with them. All the coaches were talking to me the whole trip."
One of them was Urban Meyer.
"I probably spent half the day with him," McMillan said. "He's a real enthusiastic guy. He's always jumping around. He wants to get to know you personally. I like that a lot."
McMillan currently has no leaders, but said, "Ohio State is going to be in my top five for sure."
After visiting Ohio State, McMillan stopped at South Carolina on his way back to Georgia.
"I should have gone to South Carolina first," McMillan said. "Columbus was huge. It made South Carolina look small. I went to practice and [hung out] with the running backs coach. I met with [Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier] a little bit. He was not a real talkative guy."
McMillan also has visited Georgia twice in 2012, and that program figures to be prominent in his recruitment moving forward.
As for a list of leaders, McMillan said he "probably will make it during the football season."
