O'Fallon, Ill., four-star defensive end Dewayne Hendrix has been offered by more than 20 schools across the country, but one school he had heard little from was Ohio State. That changed Thursday night.
"They weren't really recruiting my area heavily," Hendrix said of the Buckeyes. "The position coach told the coordinator there was one more guy they should take a look at, and that was me. They sat down, watched my film and decided to offer me a scholarship."

The 6-foot-5, 240-pound Hendrix lives in Big Ten country and he has family in the Columbus area, so he is familiar with the Ohio State University.
"I have a very high interest in them," Hendrix said. "I know that if it wasn't for the suspension they would have been in the national championship this year. When I first think of them, I always think of the basketball team because I like some of their old players who played there."
Hendrix did not have set plans to visit Ohio State in the immediate aftermath of the offer, but he expects to see the campus soon.
"I have an uncle up there in Columbus, Ohio, so I have to call him and let him know I want to get down there to visit," Hendrix said.
One school that Hendrix plans to visit this month is Tennessee. He will be in Knoxville on April 20 for the Volunteers' spring game.
"I am basically going to get down there to see how the atmosphere is when they have games and get a feel for how the guys play and coach," Hendrix said.
