Damien Mama has only one official visit scheduled, but he's strongly considering another one and he's looking to take a trip to a major powerhouse program.
The 6-foot-5, 360-pound four-star offensive lineman is booked for Alabama when it hosts LSU, and he said he's seriously considering a trip to Ohio State.
The Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco recruit said the Buckeyes have been showing a tremendous amount of interest in him and he's intrigued to see what they can offer. Nothing has been finalized yet, but Mama could visit Ohio State this fall.
"Right now, it's just Alabama," Mama said.
"I might be going to Ohio State, too. That's one that I'm thinking about. I'm still trying to work on the others. I've been talking to coach (Tim) Hinton, and he's a great coach. He really wants me in that offense, and he wants to see me at Ohio State."
Mama, who was outstanding at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge presented by Under Armour in Chicago this summer, does not have dates set other than Alabama on Nov. 9.
A bunch of West prospects are expected at that game, including Alabama commit Viane Talamaivao and Long Beach (Calif.) Poly safety John Smith. Both are close friends of Mama.
The four-star offensive guard said he's working on other official visits and that all of them will be far from home. That means USC and UCLA will not receive official trips. Both local programs are in the running for his services, though.
Earlier this summer, Mama said Texas A&M had been poking around but the Aggies haven't offered and they didn't make his cut of 13 schools recently.
Mama has Alabama, BYU, California, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss, UCLA, USC, Washington and Wisconsin remaining.
"It was good to narrow it down so I could just focus on those 13 schools and do my homework on those schools," Mama said.
