2013 LB Love picks up in-state offer

1/29/2012

Youngstown (Ohio) Cardinal Mooney junior linebacker Courtney Love already had a trio of offers heading into the weekend, but he was missing the big one from the in-state school.

That changed on Sunday when Ohio State offered the 6-foot-1, 225-pound outside linebacker, he wrote in a text message.

Nebraska was the first to offer Love, who is from the same town as Huskers coach Bo Pelini. Michigan State offered during an in-season unofficial visit, and Indiana was Love's latest offer before Ohio State came this weekend.

Love attended Ohio State's junior day and checked out the Buckeyes' men's basketball win against rival Michigan.

He has no plans to visit any other schools at the moment.

Love and fellow Mooney junior Marcus McWilson anchored the Cardinals' defense this season, helping them to a state championship.
