Merrillville, Ind. defensive tackle Dexter Larimore, along with his father, made the trip to Columbus on Saturday for the Ohio State-Iowa game.
"It wasn't an official visit, just a visit for a game," Larimore said. "It was my first time there for a game.
"It was amazing. I really enjoyed myself. The coaches really treated me nice. Doc (Tressel), Jim Tressel, coach Heacock, they're all down to earth.
"All I can say about their defense is 'wow'! Afterwards I asked coach Tressel if I could talk to one of their lineman. He brought Quinn Pitcock up. It went well. He said he loves it and there's not a better place to go.
"I'm looking at sometime in December for an official visit to Ohio State.
"I have offers from Ohio State, Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan in the Big Ten. I don't have a favorite.
