"My dad is a sports agent," five star offensive tackle Derek Morris said. "He was up there (in Ohio) on business so I went with him so I could visit Ohio State again."
"I loved it. I wanted to talk to the coaches and see the school again. I talked to coach Tressel, coach Bollman, and the strength coaches."
"We talked about playing time as a freshman. They said I'd have a chance to come in and start as a freshman. That's a goal of mine."
"They're getting a new weight room. It's going to be the number one weight room in the country. It will be done in a year and a half. That sounds good."
"Ohio State is definitely in the running. But I don't have any rankings right now."
Morris has made official visits to Ohio State and Georgia. He is scheduled to visit Tennessee Jan. 11 and Florida Jan. 18.
North Carolina, North Carolina State, and Miami are in the running for the last visit.
The 6-foot-6 and 350 pound Morris, from Huntersville (N.C.) North Mecklenburg, will play in the Shrine Bowl later this month.
