The Buckeyes are looking to sign four defensive backs for their 2012
recruiting class and already have commitments from three, all from the
state of Ohio. With so much of their secondary recruiting already taken
care of for this year, Luke Fickell can
work ahead a bit.

Such
was the case on Tuesday when Fickell and several of his assistant
coaches hosted the No. 1 rising junior in the state of Ohio, cornerback
Cam Burrows (Trotwood, Ohio/Madison).

Burrows, visited Ohio State with his mother, father and brother.

“Coach (Greg) Gillum showed me around campus and the facilities,”
Burrows said. “That was the first time I’ve really seen the campus.
It’s very nice.

“I got to see the stadium too. We went up in the press box and
down on the field and in the locker room. I really like the stadium.
There’s a lot of tradition. It was all very nice to me.”

In addition to Gillum, Burrows also spent time talking to Luke
Fickell, Taver Johnson and Mike Vrabel and came away impressed.

Burrows got a taste of the academics at Ohio State and student
life at Ohio State too.

“We went to the Student Union Building and I talked to one of the
counselors for athletes,” Burrows said. “He explained a lot of stuff to
me. I thought everything was good. It was all a good experience for
me.”

The 6-foot-2 and 195-pound Burrows played a huge role in Madison
making it to the state championship game (where Madison lost to Maple
Heights) and finishing with a 12-3 record last season. Burrows started
all 15 games and finished the season with 64 tackles and six
interceptions.

Burrows has nine scholarship offers. His list is made up of Ohio
State, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Missouri, Purdue, Colorado, Illinois and Kentucky.

“Ohio State is very high on my list,” Burrows said. “Notre Dame
is high too.”

Next up for Burrows is a southern trip. He will attend Alabama’s
camp on Sunday and then the Tennessee camp after that. Burrows might
also stop at Auburn and plans to visit Vanderbilt as well.

“I’m not close to committing (to anyone),” Burrows said.

Bill Kurelic’s Comment: Unless something drastic happens in
regards to Ohio State and the NCAA, I have a hard time seeing Burrows
ending up anywhere but OSU.
