By Brad Bournival


Ohio State will leave no stone unturned in its effort to shore up the linebacking unit for the future.

The latest Class of 2014 linebacker to join the list is Nyles Morgan (Crete, Ill./Crete-Monee), who announced on his Twitter account the news of an offer from the Buckeyes.

In picking up the Ohio State offer, the ESPN Watch List junior joins a list of offered junior linebackers that includes Kain Daub (Jacksonville, Fla./Sandalwood), Clifton Garrett (Plainfield, Ill./Plainfield South), Raekwon McMillan (Hinesville, Ga./Liberty County), Dillon Bates (Ponte Vedra, Fla./Ponte Vedra), Dante Booker (Akron, Ohio/St. Vincent-St. Mary) and Cameron Hampton (Dallas/Carter).

Michigan commit Michael Ferns (St. Clairsville, Ohio/St. Clairsville) also has an offer from the Buckeyes.

Morgan also has offers from Illinois, Michigan State, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Purdue, UCLA and Vanderbilt. He entered the postseason with 64 tackles, one sack and two fumble recoveries. His Crete-Monee Warriors are currently 11-0 and will face Ottawa in the Class 6A quarterfinals this weekend.
