Springboro, Ohio, offensive guard Sean Welsh has a long list of scholarship offers already in hand, but an offer from the home state Buckeyes would be a welcome addition. He auditioned at Ohio State's camp this past weekend and awaits word from the Buckeye coaching staff.
"I'm waiting to hear from them in terms of an offer, and whether I am moving that direction," Welsh said. "They were supposed to have a meeting this morning. I am supposed to call them tomorrow evening."
The 6-foot-3, 275-pound Welsh worked out with Ohio State offensive line coach Ed Warinner during the Buckeye's camp.
"He said I had a great camp and it would just be a matter of them figuring out what they needed and what direction they are moving," Welsh said.
The Spring Evaluation Period saw a wave of new scholarship offers sent Welsh's way and the three-star prospect is closing in on 20 total for the process. An offer from Ohio State, though, would certainly be well received.
"That would be a huge offer," Welsh said. "Obviously it is the in-state school and it is just a great program."
Welsh has no timetable for making his college decision, but has not ruled out selecting his school before the start of his senior season. At this stage, though, he is still weighing his options.
"I haven't really thought about favorites," Welsh said. "I'm still figuring out everybody's story and what everybody has to offer."
Next up for Welsh is an unofficial visit to Iowa the weekend of June 20. The Hawkeyes have already offered him a scholarship, so he is going there just to visit and not to camp.
"I just kind of want to get a feel for the school," Welsh said. "I have never been there, so it is just me getting out there and seeing what they have to offer."
