Last weekend Rivals100 offensive tackle Isaiah Prince made the trip north to visit Ohio State. To say the Greenbelt (Md.) Eleanor Roosevelt star enjoyed the visit would be an understatement.
"It was good," said the 6-foot-6, 270-pound Prince. "I had a really good time up there. I got to see the campus and talk with the coaches to see how they coach. I saw the football campus. They have really great facilities and I really like the coaches."
The staff and coach Larry Johnson, in particular, were some of Prince's favorite things about Ohio State.
"I know they need tackles," he said. "It was a good time to get to know them personally. Coach Johnson and I have had a relationship since he was recruiting me at Penn State."
Prince said he also got a chance to talk to some current Buckeyes.
"I asked some of the players why they chose Ohio State and why they thought it was better than some of the other schools they could have gone too," Prince said.
Prince has his eye on two more visits to SEC powers within the next month.
"I'm hoping to get to Alabama on July 12 and 13," he said. "I might go to Florida before that and drive to Alabama but I'm not sure yet. These aren't planned out yet."
Prince says he does not have an official top list of schools but there are a handful of schools he likes.
"I feel good about Maryland, Tennessee, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Florida, Alabama and Auburn," said Prince. "Once I go on more visits I'll be able to name some top schools. I speak to all the coaches about the same amount."
Maryland was the last school Prince visited before Ohio State and he said there was a chance he could visit the College Park campus again on Saturday.
