Northville, Mich., class of 2015 offensive lineman David Moorman has already made five college game visits this season. His most recent was this past Saturday when he attended Ohio State's night game with Wisconsin.
"It was crazy," Moorman said of Ohio State. "It was a great atmosphere, the fans were rowdy, the players were hyped up and it was an awesome experience."
Moorman is being recruited to Ohio State by assistant coach Kerry Coombs, and he was able to chat with the Buckeye's coaches before the game.

"I talked to [Coombs] a little bit, but I spent most of my time talking with Coach [Ed] Warinner, the offensive line coach," Moorman said. "They like me a lot and really liked my film last year and what they saw of me during the camp season. They want to see my film from this year, and said they were going to try to come by and see me during the bye week."
Ohio State first showed interest in Moorman last spring during the evaluation period. He then attended one of their team camps in June, and returned in late July for the Friday Night Lights camp.
Besides Saturday's Ohio State game, Moorman also attended games at Indiana and Michigan in September, and has seen two Michigan State games. The Spartans are the program that he feels could be closest to offering among Big Ten schools.
"They have definitely given me the best vibe of all the Big Ten teams," Moorman said. "Their coaches seem to like me a lot. I spent a lot of time talking with Coach [Mark] Staten, Coach [Terry] Samuel and Coach [Mark] Dantonio. I'm excited about where things could possibly go with that."
Moorman plans to return to East Lansing on Oct. 19 to see Michigan State host Purdue. His frequent visits to the schools evidence his interest in the Spartans.
"Growing up in Michigan, the two big schools are Michigan State and Michigan. I grew up a fan of Big Ten football and had a few family members go to Michigan State and a few family members go to Michigan. It is definitely cool being recruited by both schools."
The 6-foot-6, 285-pound is being recruited as both an offensive tackle or offensive guard at the college level. He is open to playing either position.
