Ohio State checks in on Da'Shawn Hand 

November, 27, 2012
Ohio State’s full-court press for Da’Shawn Hand (Woodbridge, Va./Woodbridge) continued Tuesday when assistant coach Zach Smith popped into the ESPN Watch List junior’s school to check in on the 6-foot-4, 245-pound defensive end.

The visit came on the heels of Hand’s unofficial visit to Columbus on Saturday, where he saw the Buckeyes complete an undefeated season with a 26-21 win over Michigan.

“He asked if I enjoyed the visit and what I thought of the game,” Hand said. “The visit shows they really care.”
