After saying he was down to two schools last week, it looks like the same two schools remain locked in a heated battle to land a commitment form Bellbrook, Ohio, linebacker Austin Spitler (6-2, 216).
"If Ohio State offers, most likely I'll go there,” he said. “They’re my leader, but I’m also looking really hard at Wisconsin. I’ve got a visit set up to visit Wisconsin on December 3. I would like to have my decision made in the next few weeks.”
Spitler also has offers from Indiana, Stanford, Buffalo and Toledo, but this has turned into a Big 10 battle to the end.
“I think both schools have great tradition,” he said. “I also think they have great coaches.”
This year, Spitler had 132 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss, seven sacks and two interceptions He earned first-team all-league honors and was named his league’s linebacker of the year.
