"I liked it a lot," offensive lineman Kirk Barton said when asked about Ohio State's senior camp session. "The dorms are really nice and I liked the coaches."
"I ran a 4.86 in the forty and I did a 29 1/2 on the vertical jump."
"Bowling Green and Miami of Ohio have offered me."
"Miami and Ohio State are probably my two favorites."
"And I'm looking at Michigan, Michigan State, Illinois, and Northwestern."
Barton, a 6-foot-6 and 265 pounder from Massillon (Ohio) Perry, has a 3.4 GPA and scored a 26 on the ACT.
Barton played mostly on the defensive line during his junior season, but said, "I'll definitely be an offensive tackle in college."
