Tallahasse (Fla.) Richards star Ryan Hill not only says he is interested in a Midwest school, he says that school is one of the schools at the top of his list.
"I'm definitely interested in Ohio State," Hill said. "They're No. 2 on my list.
"My top three is Miami, Ohio State, and USC. Then I have Tennessee, Alabama, Clemson, and Florida State.
"All of them except USC have offered me.
"I haven't taken any visits yet, but Miami has a slight lead because they're my home team. I've had a relationship with them the longest.
"Really Ohio State and Miami are tied. Those two are pretty much the front runners.
"I'm going to visit Miami Jan. 20. I'll visit Ohio State most likely Dec. 10. I know I'll take four visits, and I'm going to try and take all five."
The 6-foot-0 and 180-pound Hill is playing safety and wide receiver during his senior season, and doing his team's punting. Hill is projected as a cornerback in college.
