Dublin (Ohio) Scioto offensive lineman Clark Crum's scholarship offer total continues to rise. And while the Buckeyes are not one of those offers, that doesn't mean Crum is only looking at the schools that have already extended an offer.
"I have nine written scholarship offers," Crum said. "Illinois, Boston College, Duke, Virginia Tech, Indiana, Ohio, Miami, Akron, and Cincinnati.
"I'm going to a few camps this summer. I'm going to Notre Dame, Purdue, and Michigan. I go to Purdue Saturday for a one day camp.
"My top three are Virginia Tech, Illinois, and Boston College out of the schools that have offered. I visited Illinois a couple times. I'm going to try and get to Boston College and Virginia Tech this summer.
"Other than that there's Notre Dame and Purdue. And I'm still looking at Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Northwestern too. I'm not crossing anyone off my list."
The 6-foot-7, 280 pound Crum has been a varsity starter at offensive tackle since his sophomore year. He helped lead Scioto to a 9-3 record his junior season and was an all-district selection.
