When bloodlines ooze scarlet and gray, it’s tough for family members not to think like a Buckeye.

Marcus Whitfield (Massillon, Ohio/Washington) has an offer from Toledo and interest from Michigan State, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Penn State and Virginia. But his grandfather Dave was a captain for the Buckeyes’ 1969 squad, so he’s grown up watching and rooting for the Buckeyes.

Marcus attended Ohio State’s Sept. 8 game against UCF and on Sept. 29 was in East Lansing, Mich., to see the Buckeyes play Michigan State. As a guest of the Spartans, Whitfield liked Michigan State, but he came away more impressed with his experience at Ohio State.
