WR Speedy Noil eyes Ohio State visit

8/14/2012

There’s no secret Ohio State coach Urban Meyer loves his wide receivers to be fast, so it appears the Buckeyes can’t go wrong with a guy by the name of “Speedy.”

Speedy Noil (New Orleans/Edna Karr) is from the class of 2014 and as his name suggests, he has speed to burn.

A freshman wide receiver on his high school team that reached the Class 4A state final, Noil took the Cougars back there again last season. But this time it came at quarterback, where Noil passed for 1,654 yards and 26 touchdowns and rushed for 772 yards and eight scores.

The 5-foot-10, 169-pound Noil is being recruited at wide receiver and picked up offers from Ohio State and Florida State recently.

Noil has indicated that receiver is the position he wants to play in college, as his 4.35-second 40-yard dash speed will be best suited there.

According to his mother, Lechelle Noil, Speedy likes what the Buckeyes have to offer.

“Yes, he would love to come up and visit Ohio State,” Lechelle said.

The Buckeyes have company in the recruiting process, as Alabama, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Texas and TCU have offered scholarships to the track star as well. Auburn, Mississippi State and Tennessee have shown interest.
