Athol Springs (N.Y.) Saint Francis defensive end Doug Worthington has said ever since his summer commitment to Ohio State that he would make official visits to other schools.
And while Worthington continues to say he will take at least one or two other visits, his experience at the Ohio State-Michigan game may have wrapped things up for the Buckeyes.
"It was a great game," Worthington said.
"Last year I went to the Ohio State-Purdue game. But this was the biggest one. The festivities and all, the atmosphere outside the stadium, it was great.
"I met a lot of the parents of the other commitments. Like Alex Boone and Jim Cordle. I met both California guys (Ryan Williams and Kevin Bemoll).
"The whole thing was a great experience. I had a wonderful time.
"I'm most definitely still committed to Ohio State. My official visit might be Dec. 3, but I have to check my basketball schedule. If it isn't then, then it will be sometime in January.
"I'll probably take at least one more visit because you only get recruited once. But I'm solid with Ohio State."
Asked what other schools he might visit, Worthington said, "Boston College, Alabama, Wisconsin, Florida, Maryland maybe."
The 6-foot-7, 256 pound Worthington is the Rivals.com No. 5 strongside defensive end prospect and the No. 4 prospect in the state of New York. Worthington made 86 tackles, had eight sacks, and 27 quarterback hurries his senior season as his team won eight of 10 games.
