"It was awesome," defensive lineman Brandon Maupin said when asked about his visit to the Buckeyes big win over Texas Tech. "I was surprised how good that freshman running back (Maurice Clarett) is."
"I still don't know where I'm going. I'll probably wait till after the season to decide."
"Ohio State and Tennessee are till my two favorites. Notre Dame's still number three."
"Michigan State, Oklahoma, Miami, and South Carolina are the others. Miami and Notre Dame haven't offered, but the rest of them have."
Maupin, a 6-foot-6 and 270 pounder from West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West, has a 2.7 GPA and scored a 16 on the ACT. He is one of the top line prospects in the state of Ohio.
