OSU fans impress WR James Quick
By Jared Shanker
One of Ohio State’s final 2013 targets, ESPN 150 receiver James Quick (Louisville, Ky./Trinity) made the trip north to Columbus on Saturday for an unofficial visit.
It was his second visit to Ohio State but his first for a game, and the scene at Ohio Stadium blew Quick away.
“They have great fans. That’s what really caught my attention. The most impressive thing is how loud the fans got,” he said, adding it was the loudest game he has ever been to.
It was not just the Buckeyes coaches putting the full-court press on Quick, too. The fans that noticed the nation’s 57th-best player gave him their sales pitch as well.
“They were telling me to come to Ohio State and have fun,” Quick said.
Quick stuck around until Sunday morning and spoke to coach Urban Meyer before leaving.
“He just pretty much told me I should do whatever is best for me and make the right decision,” Quick said.
That decision will likely come down to the Buckeyes and Louisville, although Quick said he still plans to take an official visit to Oregon.
His official to Ohio State will take place in November for the Michigan game.
