Ohio State held a big junior day on Sunday with some of the top prospects on their recruiting board in attendance.

However, two of their top in-state
targets were in South Bend,
Ind., over the weekend as defensive lineman Greg McMullen (Akron,
Ohio/Hoban) and defensive end teammate LaTroy Lewis attended Notre
Dame’s junior day on Saturday.

Lewis did not come away with a scholarship
offer from the Fighting Irish, but McMullen did.

“I talked to coach (Brian) Kelly,” McMullen said. “He said I’m a
good player and he offered me.”

McMullen and Lewis were part of the bus tour for prospects and saw
both the school and the football facilities.

“It was interesting,” McMullen said. “The campus is extremely nice.
It was a productive visit.”

The 6-foot-4 and 260-pound McMullen has been a varsity starter since
his freshman season when he had 12 sacks. During his sophomore season
McMullen had 11.5 sacks among his 41 tackles. This season McMullen had
11 sacks and was third on his team in tackles.

The Buckeyes threw their hat in the ring very early, letting McMullen
know during the summer they would be offering him a scholarship. In
addition to Ohio State and Notre Dame, McMullen said he also has offers
from Nebraska, Michigan State, Michigan and Purdue.

“I like Ohio State and Nebraska with Notre Dame creeping up,”
McMullen said. “I really liked Notre Dame so they are about to move up
into the top three. Ohio State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, I like all three.
But Ohio State has the upper hand because I’m in Ohio.”

McMullen plans to attend spring games at Ohio State and Nebraska.

Bill Kurelic’s Comment: Notre Dame left a very good
impression on both McMullen and Lewis. But in McMullen’s case, I still
feel like he is Ohio State’s to lose, and I don’t see the Bucks’
missing out.
