Pittsburgh (Pa.) Keystone Oaks defensive lineman Myles Caragein, one of the top prospects in Western Pennsylvania, spoke with an Ohio State assistant coach on Monday night and set up a visit to OSU this weekend.
"I called coach Daniels (Monday night)," Caragein said. "I'm going to Ohio State this Friday for the NIKE Camp. Then I'll meet some of the Ohio State coaches and a couple of the academic advisers. I'll get a tour and see what it's like there."
Ohio State is certainly not the only school interested in Caragein.
"Some coaches have been to my school," Caragein said. "Ohio State, West Virginia and Cincinnati have been in.
"I have over 10 offers. Clemson, Purdue, Pitt, Northwestern, Indiana, North Carolina State, Akron, Miami of Ohio, Temple, Syracuse and a couple others that have slipped my mind."
Despite those 10 scholarship offers, Caragein is not close to selecting a college.
"I'm pretty much open to everyone," he said. "I haven't really visited many schools yet."
The 6-foot-3 and 260-pounder Caragein has been a varsity starter at defensive end and tight end since his freshman year. However Caragein seems more likely to move inside to defensive tackle in college.
Caragein made 68 tackles including eight sacks during his junior season. He had 14 other tackles for losses.
