Barrington (Ill.) five-star offensive tackle prospect Dan Doering (6-foot-6, 290 pounds) was at the Wisconsin-Ohio State game last Saturday in Columbus, and according to his father, Rick Doering, it was a great experience.
"Dan and I had a very good time at the Ohio State game," Rick Doering said. "We were able to sit with Ted Ginn's father at the game, and when Ted ran back that kick his Dad almost fell out of the stands. We really enjoy the coaches at Ohio State, and they are just good people. Ohio State also offers a great game-day experience. We had planned to see this game since the summer, and I was really glad to make it to see a game in the Horseshoe."
The Doerings are also planning to see the Buckeyes again this week at Iowa.
"I know that Dan is excited to check out the game at Iowa."
Doering has also drawn plenty of college coaches at his games this season.
"We've seen several coaches at Dan's games this season. I know that a few weeks back Tennessee, Northwestern, Michigan State and Northern Illinois were at the game. Several other schools have also been at different games this fall."
According to Rick Doering, look for his son to schedule his final two official visits soon.
"Dan has official visits set for Notre Dame on December 3rd, Iowa on December 10th and Nebraska on December 17th. Dan is going to decide on his last two visits between Ohio State, Miami (Fla.), Oklahoma and Tennessee. Dan I know wants to get those final two visits set shortly."
Doering is also excited to be a member of the US Army All American Bowl.
"The Army officials will be in school on Tuesday to make the official announcement, but it's already been in several newspapers. Dan is very excited to get a chance to play against so many great players from around the country. It's a great chance for Dan to measure himself against the best players in the country."
