Mineral Ridge, Ohio, 2014 running back Devine Redding picked up his first scholarship offer of the process this summer from Indiana. On Saturday he will attend the Hoosier's home contest with Michigan State before driving to another Big Ten school for a second game visit.
"Saturday I am going to Indiana's game and then I am going to shoot down to Ohio State's game," Redding said.
Redding can pull off the double-dip of Big Ten games on Saturday because Indiana kicks off at noon, while Ohio State's contest with Nebraska does not start until 8 p.m. and is on the way back to his eastern Ohio home.

This will be the second time this fall Redding has attended an Ohio State home game, but his first chance to see Indiana live and he has high expectations for the visit.
"I just want to see what kind of offense they run and how the crowd is," Redding said. "I know they lost the last two games, but I know this is a big one coming up against Michigan State on Saturday so I just want to see a victory."
Indiana remains the only school that has offered the 5-foot-9, 190-pound Redding, but he is also hearing regularly from Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin. The interest from the Buckeyes has been steady since Sept. 1
"I am getting positive feedback from them and I talk to them probably twice a week," Redding said. "They are always sending me the updates on them.
"I have a very strong interest for Ohio State. I live in Ohio and would love to go to Ohio State if I got the opportunity."
Mineral Ridge is off to a 3-3 record this fall. Redding has played in five of those games and accumulated over 500 yards and five touchdowns on the year.
