Ohio State coach Jim Tressel and other members of the Buckeye staff stopped by the home of Athol Springs (N.Y.) St. Francis defensive lineman Doug Worthington Wednesday night, and must have liked what they heard.
"I'm a Buckeye," said the 6-foot-7, 256-pounder. "I'm going to visit Boston College this weekend, but it would take a miracle for me to change from Ohio State. I really had a good visit with the coaching staff and liked everything they had to say."
Worthington has long said he would take all five visits.
"Yes, I'm going to do that, because it is a once in a lifetime thing," Worthington said.
He has visited Alabama, Florida, Wisconsin and Ohio State. When will he announce?
"I'll start calling coaches this weekend and let them know what I'm going to do," Worthington said. "I'll make my public announcement Wednesday (on Signing Day)."
Worthington had a big senior year with 81 tackles, including six sacks and 11 tackles for loss.
Worthington is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 5 defensive end in the country by Rivals.com and the No. 2 prospect in the state of New York.
