Darren Carrington remains committed to Oregon but Ohio State has made a serious push and Arizona is also considered a contender in his recruitment.
The San Diego (Calif.) Horizon four-star wide receiver was visited by Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman and wide receivers coach Zach Smith earlier this week and a trip to Columbus is being planned.
"The visit from Ohio State actually went really well," Darren Carrington, Sr., said. "It was one of those things that was really out of left field. We didn't really have contact with Ohio State at all. With them coming out here, the OC came out as well as the receivers coach, they came out and told us all about it.

"Anybody that knows anything about college football would know something about Ohio State just from the tradition of that program. It looks really good, the fit, everything looks good.
"Really right now we're gathering information, lining it all up and he'll make the right decision. He's still committed to Oregon and they (visited Tuesday night) to meet about everything and that's where we are right now."
Carrington, rated as the No. 18 wide receiver and the No. 174 prospect in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, took an official visit to Arizona this past weekend and his father said the trip was also impressive.
His commitment to Oregon still stands but there's no doubt other teams are pushing for his pledge late in the process.
"Realistically, I would say while he's committed to Oregon they're all in the mix," Carrington, Sr., said.
"They all have things that are appealing. The opportunity looks really good at all the places for him going in. He'd have the opportunity to compete and play right away so that's always attractive."
Visits are not finished, either. The four-star is looking to schedule a trip to Ohio State before signing day and the Buckeyes have to be considered a serious player for his signature.
"That's the plan," Carrington, Sr., said. "The plan is to potentially take a trip out there next weekend."
