Westlake linebacker B.J. Travers is one of the best in the state of Ohio. As such, it's not surprising he has a number of excellent scholarship offers.
"I have about 25 to 30 offers," Travers said. "I'm not too close to deciding. But I'm starting to narrow it down a little more. I'm getting there."
"I do like Oklahoma, Pitt, and Ohio State but they haven't offered. Definitely at the top of the list is Iowa. And I'm looking at USC, but they're pretty far away."
"I like Kentucky too. Penn State is still in there. Maryland too."
"All of them except Ohio State and Oklahoma have offered."
"Iowa is at the top. I like the coaches. I like their style of play. I'm going to go out there and see the place in a week or two."
"Ohio State is probably second. We talked a little about a scholarship when I was at their camp, but nothing that will be done in the next couple of weeks."
The 6-foot-0 and 228 pound Travers made 194 tackles including 15 behind the line of scrimmage during his junior season. Travers was an all-conference and all-district selection. In addition to Ohio State's camp, Travers also went out to USC for the Trojans camp.
