“I liked it a lot,” Kizer said. “Ohio State is definitely near the top of my list. I definitely wanted to get a feel for what it would be like down on the field for a game.

“I can’t get over how nice the fans are. They’re truly die-hard fans. Leaving the game, it boosted them up on my list. I definitely like Ohio State.”
